Belton House is a country estate of Brownlow and Cust familes and is located near Grantham. The house was built between 1685 to 1688 by Sir John Brownlow and has remained in the family until the National Trust took ownership in 1984.
Surprisingly I didn’t recognise the house, despite being an avid fan of the BBC’s adaptation of Helen Creswell’s spooky Moondial from 1988.

We took the “Below Stairs Tours” which provide a fascinating insight into the lives of the servant at Belton House during the 1900s and is must for any Downtown Abbey fans.
