This classic 17th century English country house is set in delightful gardens with a magnificent deer park. The perfect symmetry, opulent decor, fine furnishings and the Brownlow family portraits gives Belton both grandeur and a more intimate feel, whilst the 'Below Stairs' tours give fascinating insights into how Belton's servants lived and worked in the 1900s. This tour took about one hour and was simply unmissable, the facts that flow from the guides always amaze me.
The tranquil riverside woodland next to a bustling adventure playground makes this a perfect place for the whole family. You can even rest your legs by taking the mini railway.
Of course there is also the obligatory restaurant in this case it's the Stables restaurant and ride cafe, there is also the usual gift shop as well as a secondhand bookshop.
A great day out for adults and children alike. A fantastic, enormous (the National Trusts largest!) wooden play area for children which amuses them for quite a while and is suitable for ages 0-80! As ever with National Trust properties, it is well maintained, educational and fascinating. There is dressing up for adults and children, lovely walks through the grounds, the usual gift shop and tea room - everything we've come to expect from the NT!
