Beautiful gardens and house, just a shame the house wasn't open on the day of our visit as it's closed on Mondays and Tuesdays for preservation reasons.

Make sure you get on the downstairs tour when you visit. The house is lovely and this year there is the Downing Street silver exhibition, which was wonderful.

Arrived around 3pm on a Sunday afternoon en route home from Cambridge. As we are National Trust members we decided it was worth stopping off and having a look round. If we had had to pay we wouldn't have visited so late in the day. As it turned out, we had enough time to have a sandwich and drink on... More

Nice place to just go for a walk and on Saturday have an ice cream watch the cricket and chill out. Then walk round the house and see the lifestyles of bygone eras

The house and grounds are wonderful. The staff so helpful in each room. Be sure to book on the tour below stairs. Our guide Mr. Green, made it so interesting and was exceptionally knowledgeable. A credit to Belton House. We were blessed with a fine day, so also enjoyed the gardens, and park. With a cricket match taking place too.... More

Spent a whole day here in fine weather with plenty of blue sky and sunshine. You need the full day to wander at leisure throughout the house, basement tours, formal gardens, parkland, orangery as well as meandering throughout the park walks! All the gardens are lovely, but most is parkland (so great for young children to run and walk around)... More

Never visited a NT house before nor am I a member. Arrived to beautiful grounds and a cricket match being played in front of the house....lovely. However when I went to pay I was told that the £28 family ticket was only entry to the grounds and not to the house. Basically I paid to go to a large park.... More

Have used Belton House on many occasions to meet up with my family living in Surrey. It is a well kept NT house with beautiful gardens. For families there is a very large play area which is great for children. For a small extra cost you can travel on the miniature railway. The gardens and Orangery are in superb condition... More

I only gave this four instead of five stars as I thought £10.60 to just go in the grounds was a bit steep. However under fives were free and if you are a national trust member it's all free. The adventure playground is fantastic even my 1 and 3 year old enjoyed it but the 5,8 and 10 year old... More

Having visited before we knew more or less what to expect, the grounds are lovely for picnics and games, lots of room for parking so all well there, BUT we were disappointed with the visit to the house itself, we thought it looked in need of some TLC and some more thought put in to the way you are sent...
