Belton House, Grantham

4.3
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.
