Discover a quintessential English Country Estate
Belton House, surrounded by an idyllic deer park, is often described as the “perfect country house” and as you approach it from the front, you will see why. Its perfect symmetry, beautiful façade and breathtaking surroundings are pretty much what you conjur up in your head when you think of a rural mansion such as this. The décor inside is wonderfully opulent with ravishing fabrics and furniture, grand family portraits looming down at you at every turn and amazing collections to marvel at, such as the rare books and silverware in the house. After you have oohed and aahed at the glamorous life of the Brownlow family who lived there for generations, pop downstairs and take the Below Stairs tour which reveals how the Belton servants lived and worked in the 1900s. A full calendar of special events takes place throughout the year, aiming to educate on the fascinating artefacts that the house has amassed.
