Belton House. Days Out in Lincolnshire, UK

Belton House and Gardens are 3 miles north of the town of Grantham in Lincolnshire. Since 1984, Belton has been run by the National Trust. The gardens and parkland cover 36 acres behind the house.

On entering the gardens at Belton, the first thing you see are the Italian Gardens centered around a large circular pond and fountain. These are very pretty formal gardens layed out in expanding circles around the pond.

At the rear of the italian garden is the Orangery - a tropical greenhouse, full of exotic plants and flowers. Behind the orangery is a small walled garden with a colourful Herbaceous Border plants.Directly behind the house are the flower beds and statues of the Dutch style garden with a wide scenic path leading to the sundial statue. The path continues into more open woodland that contains the long pond and finally takes you to the Boathouse and boating lake. (boathouse was being restored Sept 2007)

Disabled access to the park and gardens is good with firm flat paths to most areas, only a couple of short trips down gentle grass banks are required to get to the pond - everywhere else, execpt the orangery is accessable to scooters and wheelchairs.

The house itself has been the location for several BBC films including - Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Tom Jones.

Directions - head to the town of Grantham in Lincolnshire, just off the A1. Then take the A607 north for about 3 miles, Belton House is signposted in Grantham.
