When my children were younger we used to visit Belton House often. It was one of the few National Trust houses that they willingly would visit as it had a superb adventure playground. We used to take a picnic and it would always be a good day out. After visiting Little Ponton the other day we realised we were close to Belton so we decided it would be nice to visit again.
It was a really nice couple of hours wandering around, I don't think I had every walked around so much of the gardens before. I shall definitely be returning when the season has turned again.
