Belton House

Beautiful Formal Gardens, Pleasure Grounds and Ancient Deer Park.

The Italian Garden has recently been restored using archives, old photographs and paintings. Designed as a sunken garden in 1810 by Sir Jeffry Wyatville, there are magnificent herbaceous borders, fountain, topiary and sculptures.

Overlooking the Italian Garden is the Orangery also built by Wyatville.

Don’t miss the walled garden behind the Orangery which has a wonderful display of sweet peas, hollyhocks and roses.

The Dutch Garden was created in the late 19th century and has parterres divided by gravel paths flanked by topiary.

Explore the pleasure grounds and surrounding parkland which are peppered with temples and ponds.

Several walks on the surrounding estate – see website for details – but note that you can’t access the Belmont Tower and Hanging Wood from the garden. Park for free at Bellmount Tower Car Park and walk.
