We had noticed dead wasps on the cafe floor and quite a few about so deliberately sat away from windows but the wasp stung my daughter under the table. Given there was an obvious problem the windows... More

One of our most visited NT Houses, plenty for all ages and interests, fabulous grounds and of course great for lunch. Easy parking , approach a bit disconcerting through housing estate but plenty of signs.

First visit to Saltram even though it's just "down the road"! It was a sunny day and the park was busy with families enjoying the sunshine, play areas and the duck pond. The house tour was worthwhile for some background on the Parker family's spending habits and lack of cash (poor things!) and the staff were very welcoming, friendly and... More

Went on guide tour of house with guide John who made it into a really informative visit. Tour took about 30 minutes and then we walk round rest of house at our leisure. Lovely home made soup in cafe as usual. Lovely visit as we only live locally must come again.

We love many NT properties and this was an impressive building, but it didn't have the soul of places like Lanhydrock and Cotehele. The rooms needed more bringing to life somehow - and it felt like a museum more than a house. The park is good for an easy walk.

Good National Trust property to visit of the parker family past. Entry to house is by timed visit and can get quite busy. Plenty of Georgian and early victorian architecture with some good furniture to see and lots of paintings. Gardens are nice too Nice tea room in the former chapel, but homemade cakes expensive as other NT properties.

Saltram, the family home of the Parker family is largely as the Parkers left it and there is a lot to see. There is timed entry, with a guide, which in our case took about one and a half hours, after which we could walk round at random and at our own pace. See family portraits, two hundred year old...
