General George Harris settled at Belmont in 1787 and his house bears the date 1792. It was built with prize money from his military career in India. In 1815 he was created Lord Harris.

The gardens surrounding the house are a mix of formal and informal planting, herbaceous, woodland, fruit and vegetables which have evolved since they were first laid out in the late 18th century. The walled gardens are particularly attractive. This view is in one of the walled gardens.

The gardens are open all year round. The old stables have been converted to an attractive tea room where the tables are within the old horse stalls. For more information see LinkExternal link
