About No. 1 Belton, Lincolnshire

A pretty, detached cottage in Belton village, with the whole of the majestic Belton estate on your doorstep waiting to be explored.

This gorgeous Grade II-listed country retreat in the Lincolnshire countryside is the perfect bolthole for families and friends, sitting in the village of Belton, overlooking the orangery. You’ll all love the out-of-hours access to the extensive grounds of Belton which will become your playground after the other visitors have gone home.

You might recognise this cottage from its role in the BBC adaptation of the children’s novel Moondial, where it became Aunt Mary’s house. Originally built in 1896 for the Clerk of Works on the Belton estate, today you’ll find a contemporary, welcoming take on traditional English country house style, that’s surrounded by lush green lawns. Open the front door and you’ll love the stylish and comfortable decor that runs throughout with a subtle nod to the past. There’s a pretty kitchen off the dining room downstairs, along with the sitting room and shower room. Upstairs are the three bedrooms and family bathroom with a grand roll top bath and separate shower.  When you’re not exploring the vast estate, take a leisurely breakfast in the cottage garden, and soak up the views over the village church and the Belton orangery.

The location here is everything, you’re minutes away from the wonderful Belton House itself (on the other side of the road) and stretching for miles around you is the gorgeous Belton estate; complete with gardens, parkland, ancient woodland and a deserted medieval village. Look out for the wild fallow deer too, who you might spot on your adventures. And if you’re craving a cake and a coffee, then a trip to the tea room is definitely in order. If you’re away with golfers, then you'll be delighted to find a golf club within walking distance of the cottage as well.

Once you’ve roamed the Belton estate, then head out to discover the attractive market towns of Grantham and Stamford. If history is your thing, then you could spend days exploring nearby places like Tattershall Castle, Burghley House, Woolsthorpe Manor, Belvoir Castle and Harlaxton Manor, all perfect for family days out. If more adventurous activities are calling, then head to Ancaster Leisure where you can go quad biking, karting or try laser tag. When your energy levels finally dip, take a leisurely narrowboat cruise and float peacefully along the Grantham Canal - soaking up the blissful scenery and wildlife-spotting opportunities.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
