Sizergh Castle and Gardens, Cumbria - The Deincourt family owned this land from the 1170s. On the marriage of Elizabeth Deincourt to Sir William de Stirkeland in 1239, the estate passed into the hands of what became the Strickland family, who owned it until it was gifted to the National Trust in 1950. The Strickland family still live at the Castle. The core of the medieval castle is a 14th-century solar tower surrounded by a Tudor house. It was extended in Elizabethan times.
