Even if you haven't got time to view the house and it's many masterpieces the walks around the grounds are superb and the food and drink facilities are well worth a visit

Lovely place to walk around, the volunteers are real credit to the place. Their knowledge certainly expands ones mind on the attraction, and bring it to life, especially one chap called Brian. The gardens were also nice for a for a short walk.

The staff here couldn't do enough to tell you about the history of saltram. Such a credit to the national trust. Only part of the house was open but still a great few hours out. Great little shop well stocked with some great Xmas gifts.

Visited with my family in early November on way back from a week in Cornwall.

We take our dog for a walk around Saltram a lot. It is a great place and safe place to walk dogs. Plenty of dog bins and you can also stop in the shop for a drink.

We visited Saltram House and Gardens as part of a short break away. As members of the National Trust this was not our first visit but the first time we have done the west wing tour. This is a guided tour of some of the rooms not usually open to the public with a knowledgeable guide filling us in on... More
