Visited Belton House for the 3rd time and this place just gets better. With 3 kids then family fun is our priority and decided not to do the house this time. The kids adventure playground is fantastic (and it's still only half open). When it's finished it will be even better. The walks through the gardens with the fountains, orangery,... More

At the time of our visit there was a special exhibition relating to "The Machine Gun Corps", who used the grounds 100 years ago for training purposes. The exhibition is of great interest to the older generation & is well presented. The extensive gardens are a great collection of plants, shrubs and a different style of presentation, with The Italian... More

Our three young boys played on the adventure play area for hours, then we had a light lunch (which was overpriced, but food usually is at places like this) while the kids played some more. We've just joined the national trust so we can keep going back to explore.

The volunteers are friendly and knowledgeable and the servant's accommodation downstairs was a wonderful tour. The guide called John was absolutely excellent and knew so much. A great catch for the NT! The house is well kept and the gardens and boating lake very peaceful. The chapel is lovely, too with fantastic sculptures.

I first went to a wedding at Belton House and had no idea how good it was. I went again a few years later with my two small boys (4 and 2) and just had an amazing time. The outdoor playground has been newly redone and is really good. This alone could take up a full day with the boys.... More

Took the grandchildren for and adventure filled day, two 4 year okds, one 9 months and one 9. All had a great day out in the adventure playground and spent some happy time in both the grounds and ondoor paly area. An afternoon well spent with lots of activities, fresh air and excitable children well worth a visit

As a family we absolutely love Belton House. Beautiful grounds, pleasant staff and enough to keep the family occupied for hours. On our most recent visit they had a 1940's themed event on with afternoon teas, real ale, singers, lots of garden games and a Calvary show. As National Trust members we can visit as often as we like without... More

Belton house park and gardens are a lovely place to visit. The gardens have paths that are suitable for buggies and wheelchairs around most of it. The stables cafe is light and airy but we were not impressed with our chocolate cake and late. The cake was dry and crumbly though we had the first slices out of it and... More

I am a member but had to pay £8 for my little granddaughter - they initially said £9 because they automatically offer the higher price that includes gift aid. Adventure playground was excellent with plenty for the kids - and well constructed and safe. The gardens are neat but uninspiring - plenty of lawns though for playing and picnics. The... More

As we are not members of the National Trust, we don't often visit sites such as this. However our experience here has massively encouraged us to become members. We paid £10 each (£20 total as we went as a couple). This gave us access to the fields and the newly improved children's playground (although it's designed for kids it didn't... More
