Lovely National Trust place to visit. Plenty of activities for the children to do with an indoor and outdoor activity centre. The grounds are kept beautifully and there are lots of walks around the estate for you to do as well as seeing all the resident deer that are there. The house itself is well equipped and set out, with... More

Lovely trip on a busy weekend to this country house. Admittedly the sun was shining. House was set in beautiful grounds, plenty of falt areas to play on for kids, but lovely gardens to walk arround. Out of the way, well maintained adventure play ground gave the kids a way to burn off steam House interior was interesting and guides... More

Could make your own way round house and staff were very informative and never seemed in a rush to get rid of you. In Stables is a section on the Machine Gun Corp from WW1. Did not have time to look at extensive ground and kids play areas. Another visit is in order.

Came here to run off some energy for my very energetic nearly 4 year old, he enjoyed it that much we came back the next day! The gardens are beautiful and he spotted some tadpoles which helped! The new adventure play area is brilliant and tested his own limits we could not get him off I dread to think what... More

Found this gem by accident, having been diverted by traffic problems on a day out. Everything about Belton was interesting, atmospheric and diverse. The variety and standard of gardens and outdoor activities (for the younger visitors) were exceptional. When visiting the house, really advise that you take advantage of the 'below stairs' tour. The staff/volunteers on duty today were not... More

After being a National Trust Member for three years I finally got round to visiting Belton House last weekend, and I'm gutted it took me that long to find this gem! There is something for everyone and my daughter loved the amazing adventure playground - its the best I have ever seen! I can't wait to see it when its... More

I went here on a Sunday before a Bank Holiday, although there were lots of cars parked the place is so vast that it never seemed that busy. The House is very big and there are normally volunteers up in each room to provide information. The Ground floor and first floor are open to visitors to make their own way... More

Belton House is about 3 miles out of Grantham and 30 odd miles from Lincoln. It cost £12,60 per Adult and £ 8 per child ( non gift aid ) to be able to visit the whole of the property. It was a very busy Bank holiday Monday but all the staff we met were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The... More

Lovely National Trust property with plenty to see and places for children to enjoy playing. Queues for food were too long and there was not enough choice of sandwich before lunch had ended on the bank holiday - this was disappointing as we were not able to take a picnic as we normally would and hoped for a treat, otherwise...

We have visited several times now and enjoyed each occasion. There are lots of open spaces for walking, picnics and games and the outdoor playground is great as is the indoor play cafe. The house is lovely but not overly interesting for young children. Only areas of criticism, as with all national trust properties quality of food never really matches... More
