Belton House will be holding a Christmas Food and Craft Market in the Stable Yard from today until Sunday, from 10.30am to 4pm.
Visitors can shop for handmade gifts and sample local produce while enjoying a festive atmosphere with seasonal music and hand-bell ringers.
Craft stalls will include everything from handmade jewellery to artisan-style Christmas decorations and hand-made bags and gloves. Local food producers will be offering visitors a taste of what they have to offer.
Imaginative Christmas gifts will also be available in the Coach House Gift Shop and Garden Shop, while the Stables Restaurant will be offering traditional Christmas lunch and Belton’s award-winning Venison Casserole from noon to 2pm each day.
Mary Kindred, visitor services manager, said: “We’ve now expanded this event to three days. We’re looking forward to a lovely weekend – showcasing the very best of Lincolnshire and local produce and crafts. This is a great opportunity to escape the High Street and indulge in some Christmas treats in a relaxed, festive atmosphere, with your family and friends.
