Great addition to Belton house and grounds. You are given a ticket for 1 hours play in the indoor adventure area for free. If its busy they will given you a time slot when it's next available which might be 30 min to an hour. The cafe is reasonable and we were given a loyalty card which after so many coffees you get some free. There is a nice little courtyard area that's a bit of a sun trap which was very nice.
Really nice playground (the national trusts biggest) with lots of different equipment for different ages. Includes two zip wires, a big climbing frame and slide, baby swings and gravel and water play among others There is also a little train that you can pay to go on which my children love to spot deer from. It has a cafe which tea/coffee, ice creams, cakes and some sandwiches; toilets&baby change are also available.

This is a huge establishment which covers a multitude of things. It has massive amounts of designer clothes for male and female with underwear and every possible accessory needed from top to toe. A huge choice of furniture for every room in the house plus everything electrical and all this, from personal experience, an excellent delivery service. A very nice restaurant upstairs and a "jolly" and friendly coffee bar downstairs. An extremely elegant perfume and makeup department upstairs with lovely friendly and helpful staff who really know their products. Across the car park is a garden centre with all things growing with another good cafe. You could easily spend a day here as is proved by the large number of tour buses often to be seen in the car park.
Beige Central! Full of older people (like me!) Actually it's pretty good if you're going clothes shopping and don't want to go to a town centre. Good, extensive selection, some designer labels if that's your thing. As good as any large department store. But with easy parking.
