Belmont House

Perfect for families and groups celebrating that special occasion or just enjoying each other’s company, Belmont House sleeps up to 12 (13 if you count the baby in the cot).  This lovingly-restored Georgian gem, overlooking Bluemull Sound and just a short distance from Belmont Ferry Terminal, is ideally situated for exploring all the North Isles – Unst, Yell and Fetlar.  A wonderful venue for self-catering holidays, weddings and events, or the perfect place to relax after a day exploring and enjoying the walks, wildlife, and the Viking heritage – all on Belmont’s doorstep!

Georgian Belmont, built in 1775 and fully restored, is in a magnificent natural setting with formal gardens.

Extending over three floors, the house is elegantly furnished to the highest standard.

Make the most of the beautiful first floor drawing room with views in three directions, draw inspiration looking out from the Venetian writing room, or relax in the spectacular gardens after a day exploring the numerous walking opportunities, enjoying the wildlife and the Viking heritage – all on Belmont’s doorstep!

And by staying at Belmont, you are directly helping to preserve this historic property for future generations to enjoy.  A charitable trust, governed by volunteer local trustees, was set up to raise the funds to restore the building and open the gardens to the community.  Now a beautiful comfortable house, profits are re-invested in an ongoing maintenance programme to preserve the building for the future – and against the severe winter climate!

We hope you will love Belmont as much as we do!
