Sizergh Castle in February

The weather was variable for our visit to Sizergh Castle near Kendal in Cumbria. There was one short heavy shower during which we were able to shelter. The sun shone afterwards, lighting up the tops of trees.

We enjoyed lunch in the café and explored the parts of the gardens, which were open. (To protect the lawns, they are out of bounds in winter.  We could see the waterbirds from a distance.) The number of species in flower so early in the year was impressive. The planting is very imaginative. It was the first time we had visited in winter.

We also explored some of the estate, where there are some good viewpoints.
