Belton House

Belton House was built between 1685 and 1688 for 'Young Sir John' Brownlow and his wife. The family wealth was originally founded by Richard Brownlow (1553-1638) who became rich as a lawyer and each year invested two thirds of his annual salary into land. The house and estate remained in the Brownlow and Cust family until 1984 with the 7 Baron Brownlow gifted the house and some of its contents to the National Trust in 1984.

Historic home of the Cust and Brownlow families for over 300 years, Belton House was gifted to The National Trust in 1984 and is visited by over ¼ million people a year.

Grimsthorpe Castle is a country house north-west of Bourne. It lies within a park of rolling pastures, lakes, and woodland landscaped by Capability Brown. While Grimsthorpe is not a castle in the strict sense of the word, its character is massive and martial – the towers and outlying pavilions recalling the bastions of a great fortress in classical dress. Grimsthorpe has been the home of the de Eresby family since 1516. The present owner is Jane Heathcote-Drummond-Willoughby, 28th Baroness Willoughby de Eresby, granddaughter of Nancy Astor, who died at Grimsthorpe in 1964.
