“Beautiful house in an amazing place”

This is a lovely Georgian house which has been carefully restored maintaining many original features. The drawing room is my favourite room as it is full of light with views over the island. The house is well equipped for self catering. A weekend spend here in the peaceful surroundings of Britain's most northerly island is guaranteed to recharge your batteries.

“A perfect retreat”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

10 of us travelled North to enjoy the peace of uninterrupted paper crafting in the most beautiful surroundings of Belmont. We enjoyed the well appointed kitchen, the spaces to work, rest and play in and especially sleeping in crisp white bed linen. We crafted whilst watching the boats and ferries sail in and out of Bluemull Sound. The restoration is tasteful and thoughtful and makes for very pleasant living, spread the cost between your group and it very affordable. I recommend it to you and it is very child friendly for families.

9 of us stayed in this wonderful house for a week's holiday.
As 2 couples and 5 single adults, the flexible sleeping arrangements of the house worked very well. We didn't need the use of the downstairs sitting room so it was used as a bedroom. Another person (used to roughing it) happily slept in the west pavilion. All the beds were very comfortable.
We loved Belmont's period features, art works and great views. The drawing room was a pleasure to be in, especially as the sun went down.
The island's shops sold a good range of foodstuffs and drinks, the kitchen and dining room were well equipped - so self-catering was made easy.
Unst was a haven for walking, bird-watching and interesting geology; the Heritage Museum and Boat Haven were excellent. We also did some wild swimming and cycling.
Yell and Fetlar were close for short visits or day trips.

Six of us stayed at Belmont House for a weekend. The house has been restored with the greatest of skill, thought, artistry and care. Throughout the house the colours reflect the era and are calm and relaxing. The modern amenities i.e. kitchen, bathrooms and all services, are wonderfully crafted into this period dwelling and are first class. The artwork in the accommodation is stunning and adds to the whole sensory experience of living in a wonderful spacious Georgian home. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable, as are all the rooms. Needless to say we left totally enthralled with the whole Belmont House experience. Our stay wasn't long enough but a great introduction! Belmont House has gained new fans who will definitely return. We will be singing its praise to anyone who will listen.

“Wonderful memorable 50th birthday Celebrations at Belmont House Unst.”

Our party of 6 couples arrived in Unst from Whalsay at 12, 3 of us celebrating 50th birthdays. Belmont House exceeded all expectations - tasteful arty décor, charm, cosy rooms and all possible amenities. Left for Victorias Tearoom for lunch at Haroldswick which was lovely. Visited boatshed where one of my boat building ancestors boats was on show, visited the Viking longhouse and ship, took a walk up to see Muckle Flugga lighthouse and the solan colony - stunning. A first class 3 course meal prepared in the Belmont kitchen by Scj Catering chef & co with lovely table presentation of fresh Lilly - lovely aroma and atmosphere. Splendid time was had by all - lots of fun and banter in a beautiful house and setting. A brilliant unforgettable weekend to mark a special occasion with our friends. We're all thinking of an excuse to return in the near future hmmm.........maybe our 51st!!
Ps I loved my night in the box bed in the attic room so comfy and cozy - think id like one!

Thank you to Belmont Trust
