We arrived about 10 to see the grounds as the house did not open until 1230 and we had to be going on a long journey so did not have time to wait. But we were very pleasantly surprised on arrived in the entrance hall at 1030 to be offered a short explanation of the first 3 rooms. Well done... More

They have recently introduced free flow viewing in the house which worked really well for my five year old as im sure if we had to... More

We liked the "Downstairs" tour of the servants' quarters and learning how they worked and lived. Because we arrived really early, we also got a bonus private tour of the family portraits in the house. The real upside of this place was the enthusiasm of the guides in the house. The downside is value received for the price of entrance.... More

We were just planning a Sunday trip out and the house didn't appear too big so unfortunately we didn't really leave adequate time to enjoy everything on offer. Yes, it's possible to rush round but I would have liked more time to explore. We took the below stairs tour which left us less time for the house and gardens and... More

The Basement tour was most informative and the visit generally most enjoyable. Furnishing and general style of room planning was good. Many rooms to see and helpful guides in all the rooms.

Staying in the area so went there for a day trip. The gardens and grounds were somewhat disappointing certainly not an abundance of flowers. The house however was well worth the entrance fee and I would especially recommend the basement escorted tour. Our guide was a welsh lady who had an in depth knowledge of the house and it's history... More

We were unprepared for Belton. It's a huge estate with an imposing manor house and acres of parkland. The property is open every day but the manor is only open on Mondays and Tuesdays for timed tours of the basement area. Other days it's fully open and tours are on offer covering various aspects of the building. The basement tour... More

We returned there today and as usual the place was clean well kept and friendly helpful staff. This is a large area with a large house and grounds. There was even a cricket match on one side. The car park is some way from the main area but there is a buggy ride for the disabled. The only real adverse... More

The house was closed when we went but we had an interesting tour of the below stairs area. The NT acquired the house in 1984 after the owner's finances finally went critical. The house is a very good example of Restoration architecture and set in landscaped grounds and deer park with some pretty formal gardens. Worth a detour.
