Saltram Saltram has it all, a Georgian mansion to tour, great gardens with plenty of features to explore and great places to eat and drink. Allow a good half a day to get the best out of your visit. First the house, more of an art gallery than a stately home, the downstairs rooms are velvet lined in places with... More

We visited Saltram while on holiday in Devon. The weather was poor but there's plenty to see and do in the house. It's an imposing Robert Adam house built around a earlier Tudor property and we enjoyed looking out for the earlier parts which are hidden in courtyards and around corners etc. We met some very interesting and enthusiastic room...

Just a stone's throw from Plymouth but a world away. Interesting interior especially the Chinese wallpapers and kitchen areas. Extensive gardens stretching down to the river, well tended by an army of keen volunteers. Nice cafe / restaurant serving the usual NT food and drink.

Not even the rain could spoil our day it has its own beauty come rain or shine. The kitchen area could do with some interactivity such as cooking demonstrations.

We visited Saltram for the first time on Thursday 3rd July. The staff were so helpful with their information and relaxed attentiveness. The big bonus for me is the relaxation of photography in NT houses and Saltram did not disappoint. The new venture at the Arts & Crafts building was a welcome surprise. The food was perfect and presented in... More

A lovely place to visit. Many interesting rooms to see in the house, with informative displays and staff to explain the exhibits and décor. The gardens are a gentle stroll, although there are not many colourful planting schemes to see in the grounds. There is however a lovely orangery building and at the time of our visit, there was classical... More
