Sizergh Castle
Sizergh Castle and Garden is a stately home and garden at Helsington in Cumbria. It is in the care of the National Trust.

The core of Sizeburgh Castle is a 14th-century pele tower surrounded by a Tudor house. It was further extended in Elizabethan times. Around 1770, the great hall was again expanded in the Georgian style. The castle passed into the hands of the Strickland family on the marriage of Elizabeth Deincourt to Sir William de Stirkeland in 1239. It was owned by the family until it was gifted to the National Trust in 1950.

The estate dates from 1336, when a grant from Edward III allowed Sir Walter Strickland to enclose the land around Sizergh as his exclusive park.
