The 'perfect' English country house estate
A warm welcome at Belton
This perfect English country house is set in delightful gardens with a magnificent deer park. Although our showrooms above-stairs are closed for conservation over the winter period, this is the perfect time of year to take one of our ‘Below-Stairs’ tours to gain intriguing new insights into how Belton’s servants lived and worked in the 1900s.
Discover more at Belton this season
We are celebrating traditions old and new this Christmas. As well as our fascinating programme of costumed-talks, lecture lunches and winter walks, this is the ideal opportunity to discover more about Belton’s past and present.
The changing seasons make Belton’s gardens and parkland a delight to explore, with many picture-perfect settings. A stroll along Statue Walk leads to our beautifully restored Boat House and tranquil lakeshore, whilst nearer the House, seating in the Dutch and Italian Gardens are ideal for enjoying vistas, details and quiet moments. Magnificent trees and misty views of our fallow deer are perfectly complemented by the honey-coloured symmetry of the House.
