Belton House, Grantham

Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
One of the most complete examples of a typical English country dwelling, Belton House is surrounded by landscaped gardens with pathways that ribbon through the woodlands and park. The house was constructed in the 17th-century by Sir John Brownlow, who, despite his great wealth, chose to build modestly. However, the interior was outfitted with the most innovative designs for the time, including sash windows. The family's social status fluctuated from barons to earls and back again, but the textiles and the decor have remained largely the same since 1688. Nowadays, the National Trust owns and maintains the site, keeping it open to the public during daylight hours.

  • This late 17TH-century country house is easily accessible by public transport from Lincoln (1 hour), specifically with the bus from Lincoln to Grantham that caught in the bus station. Currently belongs to the National Trust public body and includes two types of visits:-a guided tour, in English, to the dependencies of the service (basement), that make you remember the series as up and down or Downton Abbey. View lasts almost an hour and reserves at the moment you arrive to the House. Very interesting and well organized. -another for free, by all the top which includes the noble rooms. In this case, chaos reigns. It is a circular circuit you are children running in both directions, carts with more children and people in both directions with an incredible hassle. You can if the tour were in a sense and parents take more care of their children visit would be better, and the conservation of the building would appreciate it. The other part of the visit includes the extensive gardens, including pond, which are enjoyed on a sunny day as we had. It has terrace with restaurant for lunch and picnic area.

  • Good place for a family day out. It's a National Trust country house with massive gardens. Accessibility is generally good although there are some gravelled paths and cobbled areas. There are off road mobility buggies available for free hire. The ground floor of the house itself is accessible via a stair climber - it's a wheelchair attached to a caterpillar track, a little bit scary but it works! There's no access to the upper floors but there is a video tour available to watch. Well worth a visit with a young family and for younger disabled people that can't often get into these historic sites.
  • House was interesting. We found gates locked from. Park 8nto car park. Cafe restaurant let's the visit down. Sup uninspiring and barely lukewarm. Sausage rolls were more party than sausage. Jacket pots looked awful. Pasta and vegetable bake two 9n offer one undrcooked other or cooked. Most sandwiches made if white bread. Choices poor uninspiring unappetising and far too expensive for poor equality offered. We found choices etc had not improved since lat year. The national Trust needs to do better.
  • Fantastic outdoor play area for all ages. Lovely walks. Plenty of car parking. The Indoor play area is good for older children but not great for under 4's. The house is lovely to walk round.
  • Beautiful house helpful staff lovely garden and the deer are beautiful cafe is good will go again lots to see
  • Arguably the perfect country house! This National Trust property is set in over 20 acres of beautiful parkland just outside the Lincolnshire market town of Grantham. With events throughout the year, it has something for all the family.
