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.

Came here for a run around around saltram, absolutely lovely scenery and nice to see lots of people enjoying the grounds. Afterwards we stopped off at the cafe for a well deserved cake! Although I would say it's a bit more expensive than other places, it's the national trust so higher prices are something you can expect. Polite service and... More

This is a stunning location in the middle of a city... we travelled from Cornwall to see it and it was well worth a visit. Gorgeous house with fantastic gardens.

Lovely visit to a beautiful house, which was rounded off by a perfect afternoon tea in the chapel tea room. It was like going back in time, with the waitresses in pennies and tea served in bone china and cakes on cake stands. Our children were very confused!!!! Great, friendly service and very good value. Very good choice of teas... More

Beautiful property with lots of rooms to see, though not set up to make you 'feel' that someone lived there, it's still warm and friendly. Some really interesting Chinese wallpaper, fascinating to see. Loved the library such an amazing room. Volunteers as always happy to offer their knowledge. Gardens magnificent though it was raining on our visit so didn't see... More

We spent a large proportion of our time here viewing the house which is by timed admission every 10 minutes. It is a very large house and at times quite impersonal, although in other rooms far more cosy and homely. There are the usual NT volunteers who leap on you as soon as you enter the room. They are a... More

House is fine, but for us the grounds win. Boys (8 and 10) loved climbing the trees and charging about. NT had left out tennis, badminton, footballs, croquet and other toys on the lawns which was brilliant.
