Belton House is worth a visit for the lovely gardens alone. The viewing of the main house was OK but we managed to get a tour of the basement to view the servants conditions with the guide making the experience memorable. Belton House is definitely worth a visit, but try to make it on a sunny day to fully appreciate... More

We love the national trust buildings but get annoyed paying the same amount of money and being restricted to certain areas because of having a dog. Our dog is very small and well behaved and I do get annoyed that children are allowed everywhere and behave like brats! Not bitter at all!! :-)

A lovely house with an interesting history but due to the fact that the paintings and the fabrics have to be protected from the light they keep the rooms in darkness with blinds pulled almost completely down. I can understand why they have to do this but it is a pity as its not easy to see any detail on... More

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

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
