SIZERGH
SIZERGH

Delightful medieval fortified house, which has been the home of the Strickland family for more than 750 years. The Stricklands were Roman Catholics when it was unfashionable, but survived - and their house is packed with fascinating portraits, furnishings - and some unique panelling. Outside, there is an unusual limestone rock garden, pastures, woodland, orchards, a kitchen garden, bee hives and a charming lake.
