New adventures

Have you heard we're planning a new playground for 2015? We know our family visitors love the playground, so we're working hard to make sure the new version will be even better.

Phase 1 opens on 31 March with Phase 2 completion planned for early summer.

Bring your dog

Belton has over 1300 acres of parkland where dogs on leads are welcome and also in the courtyard areas. There is a doggie bin by the visitor car park and water bowls in the stable yard .

We know not everyone loves dogs though so the gardens and children's outdoor adventure playground are dog-free areas.

Spring has sprung

Signs of spring everywhere. Daffodils, scilla and many other spring bulbs are beginning to emerge, as are plenty of water birds around the boating lake.

It all makes for a lovely photo. So please share your snaps with us on Facebook and Twitter.
