went for a walk around Saltram. The grounds always look impressive but this day was wet and windy. So to the restaurant for something to warm us up. So soup and roll which I thought was expensive for such a small bowl and the bread, could have done with twice the amount.

I've been going to Saltram for years. They have recently started to charge for parking if you're not a member of the National Trust, but at £40 per year with so many places to visit, it hasn't deterred us. Lovely old house to explore, and interesting birds in the duck pond, but the circular walk around the grounds is what... More

A most interesting house to visit made all the better by the friendly and helpful volunteers. The gardens are and walks are also well worth a visit on their own.

This time of the year, go outside - gardens and walks are brilliant - when it's raining - have a look at how well the NT have looked after this grand building - then eat something in the lovely restaurant!

Chapel tearooms is a pleasure to visit with its vintage mismatching china, jovial 'oldies' music and an exciting display of cakes. It's a pleasure to see such a huge display. Much to our dissapointment the 'homemade' cakes weren't so delicious as they could have been. The coffee and walnut cake was far too dry and had a nasty bitter taste.... More

Pleasant open area of parkland, good for dog walkers as there are plenty of dog bins with distance to next bin written on them, excellent idea. Saltram seems a bit plain, entrance is via car park, not spectacular. Nice duck pond and shop. Rooms in house are nice and worth a visit, grounds could be made more of, like the... More

After the sat nav sending us to a traveller site we eventually found Saltram. The house is a gem with all the original contents in place. The guides were fantastic and so knowledgeable. All the staff were most pleasant. Beautiful gardens to walk round. Then to finish off with a cream tea with freshly baked scones on a china service.... More

I was there for a national day, and watched the Morris dancers dancing around the place. Drank some very good cider, ate pork, and had a lovely day. That was fun!

I made a random comment about a scone. & the national trust tweeted me back asking how I like my scones. So I told them that I like cherries in them - It was nice that they took an interest.
