We live very close to Belton House and it is always a pleasure to pay a visit. On a fine day the ample gardens are a great place to wander. There is a play park for the children that will keep them busy for hours. The house is forever changing and there is plenty to see. The Restaurant is a... More

The beautiful honey coloured stone buildings we passed immediately before entering the gates of this late 17th century National Trust property gave us some indication of the treat we were in for. Standing in lovely park land and gardens the house looks like a French chateau. Though most of the inside has been lovingly restored there are still a few... More

We enjoyed our visit to this national trust property, very established and well kept. We were disappointed to not able to get a ticket for the servants quarter tour as we were too late (make sure you arrive early to be able to get a ticket) Overall a good day out for the family with gardens to walk around after...

Don't know the guide's name but he brought 'life below stairs' ...well alive. In excess of an hour, the relationships of what went on below stairs, not as in Downton Abbey, was explained in clear and concise terms. Without glamorising, I came away with a real sense of how life in the big house was like for those that looked... More

The house was lovely but it needed a direction for people to around the house as it was there were people knocking into each other, we didn't get time to see all the grounds but there was a falconer and for £2.00 you could hold a very large European owl it was a great experience, as usual the tea room...

We arrived before the house opened but was advised to go to the house and one of the guides would give a talk about the family who had owned the house. We were a small group of 6 and were taken to some of the downstairs rooms and the family history was given. The guide was knowledgable, interesting and good... More

There really is something for everyone. We joined the National Trust because of this place being on our doorstep and we've saved a fortune on the admission over the past 3 years. The kids never get bored of it and rarely a weekend goes by when they don't ask to go there. Keep up the good work, it is very... More

We cycled around the grounds which were beautiful and my son played in the adventure playground which was very good. We find that the National Trust properties are a bit expensive though for families to visit.

Belton House is a great place for a day out and because there are often special events, somewhere to visit regularly. We visit as a family several times a year and always take any visitors. It has more to offer for children than most of the National Trust places we visit - they love the outdoor play area (even the... More
