The tea room, is on the top floor of a  late 17th century barn. Here  you can enjoy a hearty
Cumbrian breakfast, sip specially blended tea from a Kendal merchant made to suit the
local water, enjoy a lunch of local produce, or a fabulous farmhouse tea.
One interesting thing is that whilst you sip or eat you have  a bird’s eye view of the parlour so that you  can watch the cows being milked each afternoon from 3.15pm – it’s a sight you don’t often see with afternoon tea!

Cows have been  at Sizergh since the 13th century when milk was produced for the castle across the fields. As a working farm, the yield today supplies the farm shop, tearoom and businesses across the county.

It’s everything you could want for a quick trip or a slow day out and good for families too
with everything from shopping, eating and a farm trail. There  are three galleries to explore
packed with everything from everyday staples and foodie finds, clothing to crockery, books
to baskets, toys to trowels and works by local potters, artists and designers.
Finding Low Sizergh Barn :  4 miles from Junction 36 on the M6. Follow the A590 towards Kendal, take the exit for Barrow-in-Furness and follow brown signs for Sizergh Castle, then Low Sizergh Barn.  Sat Nav: LA8 8DZ
