My wife had visited Belton House as a child and remembered a fantastic adventure playground hence a visit some 30 years from her last. The property is located very close to the A1 and very easy to find with ample parking space. There is an outside large adventure playground (soon to be modernised), in internal play area with rope bridges... More

I loved Belton House; the architecture, the gardens, they are all beautiful! Thoroughly enjoyed my day here and would recommend it to anyone. A true gem of Grantham!

Visited today with friends. The Downing Street silver display is stunning. The trip Downstairs conducted by John Green was extremely well done and you sensed what it was like to work as a servant. It was informative and tinged with humour. 50 mins just flew by. The house is full of artefacts making it welll worth a visit. The cafe... More

We foound Belton House by accident and so glad we did. Really interesting house with a wonderful talk on life in the house as a servant which was given by John who was really excellent. It made the house come to life and it was great to see what life was really like for the downstairs servants in those times,... More

A famioy seat since late 1500's with an extensive grounds, knowledgable staff and a place that links to recent history. My father was able to see more of what happened to tge scandal when he was a boy and the King abdicated. Well worth spending time. Great outdoor adventure space in the trees for children +. Worth the rather expensive... More

As Nat Trust members we visit this lovely park and house free of charge which a true privilege. Acres to walk in, accommodating deer which remain close for photos, majestic house and the wide open park to ramble in. What more could you ask for. Love it!

We didn't actually do the house just the grounds which where fabulous and most of it accessible with a disabled scooter. There are lots of different paths to go round, some suitable for wheel chairs and some not but they are well sign posted. The boat house was beautiful and the setting peaceful. Pieces of wood had been placed at... More

Being national trust members it was a great 'free' day out. The outside adventure play area for the kids was immense. The house was great to go round, not quite as spectacular as some, but still really nice. We even got to watch the special stair climber for wheelchair access There is a great indoor play area but make sure... More

On arrival in the middle of the huge car park were a group of deer - a photo opportunity before leaving the car. Belton is a lovely house to see with wonderful rooms and the usual fascinating portrait paintings. Excellent views from the upper floor windows over the gardens and grounds. We saw the Silver Collection from Downing Street which... More

There is so much to do here it is amazing. You could spend the whole day here, especially if you join the national trust its a fab place to come if you have bored children on a weekend. There is a huge outside play area and a lovely indoor play area. The second hand book shop is well worth a... More
