Belton House. Built in the late 17th century and set amidst 1300 acres of gardens and parkland, Belton House was designed to impress. For centuries it was the scene of lavish hospitality with the Brownlow family enjoying many royal connections. Belton has been described as a compilation of all that is finest of Carolean architecture, the only truly vernacular style of architecture that England had produced since the Tudor period.
