The gardens at Belton House, near Grantham, open next Saturday, May 24 on behalf of the National Gardens Scheme, from 9.30am to 5.30pm.

The 35-acre gardens are a year-round inspiration and well worth visiting.

There are Italian gardens with an orangery by Sir Jeffrey Wyatville and iconic fountain and Dutch Gardens, with lavender and timeless topiary, lead on to informal woodland areas, lakeside and boathouse.

Bluebells in May light up the woodland paths to the lakeshore. Several seats in sun or shade. Most areas of the garden are accessible, but there are gravel paths and cobbled driveway with some steps. Wheelchair users can request an access map of grounds.

Admission to the gardens is £10.60, children £7.

Refreshments and plants for sale.
