SOFT PLAY

Mini Monsters holds a three story soft-play structure that includes slides, tunnels, playing blocks, punch bags and a ball pit. We also have a separate soft play area just for babies with soft bricks, a baby slide, a ball pit, rockers and plenty of toys.
It is the perfect size to entertain the older children but not too big that it overwhelms the babies.

Open all year round, the Ride gives grown-ups the opportunity to enjoy a refreshment or two while the children enjoy indoor adventure play.
Adventure play - not soft play
Built with solid timber, as it would be outdoors, the Ride has recreated some of Belton’s best-loved features all under one roof.

The Yard is an indoor soft play centre & cafe.
Children have the freedom to explore the large play structure safely in their own environment, under 2’s have a designated space to explore and you grown ups can enjoy fresh coffee, grilled cheese sandwiches & sweet treats sourced from local suppliers, we’d love to see you. Come and have a look around here

The Playbarn is the best place to run around in a safe indoor environment for children up to the age of 12. Children must wear socks and be accompanied by an adult at all times.The Playbarn is open whatever the weather, but if the sun’s shining you might prefer our outdoor play park, with its swings, slides and climbing equipment, or the evergreen maze.

HISTORIC HOUSES

BURGHLEY HOUSE

Built and mostly designed by William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth I, between 1555 and 1587, the main part of the House has 35 major rooms on the ground and first floors.
There are more than 80 lesser rooms and numerous halls, corridors, bathrooms and service areas.

Built for Sir John Brownlow in the 1680s, the mansion has all the design features of a classic country house. Inside, the wealth of the Belton estate is immediately apparent, with grand display rooms and impressive collections of porcelain, silver, paintings and books.

Belvoir Castle, standing proudly in the Vale of Belvoir and home to the Duke of Rutland’s family since 1067, is one of the finest examples of Regency architecture in the world

This remarkable castle, built on the instruction of William the Conqueror, has been my family’s home for 450 years. Prior to the Watson’s ownership the Castle was held by the crown. There are very few other homes that have been continuously occupied for nearly 1000 years and within that time been owned by just one family since being relinquished as a royal Castle. 

Set beside the church of the picturesque ironstone village of Lyddington, Lyddington Bede House originated as the medieval wing of a palace belonging to the Bishops of Lincoln. By 1600 it had passed to Sir Thomas Cecil, son of Queen Elizabeth’s chief minister, who converted it into an almshouse for 12 poor ‘bedesmen’ over 30 years old and two women (over 45), all free of lunacy, leprosy or the French pox.

Kirby Hall is one of England’s greatest Elizabethan and 17th-century houses, once owned by Sir Christopher Hatton, Lord Chancellor to Queen Elizabeth I.
Although this vast mansion is partly roofless, the walls show the exceptionally rich decoration that proclaims that its successive owners were always at the forefront of new ideas about architecture and design

Without Isaac Newton this small manor would be just another Lincolnshire farmhouse - but in 1665 the plague sent him back from university to this place where he was born. For 18 months Newton worked in solitude, experimenting obsessively, laying foundations for the science of today.
Woolsthorpe Manor tells the story of Newton's time at Woolsthorpe, from his birth and childhood to the discoveries of his Year of Wonders.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

Set within an ancient wilderness, Lincolnshire's largest outdoor adventure playground promises hours of fun and discovery for children of all ages, all year round. 
With over 30 pieces of play equipment in this award winning outdoor play area, there really is something for every family.

Just outside Little Bytham village, Bythams Spinney is a fun-packed small woodland area with play equipment including a zip-wire, wobbly bridge, slides, swings, seasaw and playhouse, plus room to run around.

FINESHADE WOOD

Finshade Wood in the heart of Rockingham Forest, near Duddington, features a network of trails to explore by foot or on two wheels - there's even a treehouse to discover. Or take part in the free Zog Activity Trail, looking out for characters from the story, uncovering hidden signs on reveal panels and learning as Zog did at dragon school.

On the outskirts of Stamford, Bourne Wood has a pleasant walk, skip or run, to the ponds, a sculpture trail and parkland for playing.
