The weather was just perfect so we decided to talk a walk at Belton House close to Mum’s.
For three hundred years, Belton House was the seat of the Brownlow and Cust family, who had first acquired land in the area in the late 16th century. Between 1685 and 1688 Sir John Brownlow and his wife had the mansion built. On all the visits to the house we have not actually toured the house. Today was no exception as it was still early in the season and house tours were only taking place in the afternoon. However we did enjoy a walk in the extensive parkland and then explored the more formal gardens.
The daffodils were in full bloom but there were still in some sheltered places snowdrops. We found the small lake, although a bit short of water and then the orangery with its tropical plants.
A lovely walk.
