We spent a lovely Sunday here at Saltram. Beautiful gardens, most of which are relatively flat so perfect for buggies or mobility aides. The house is wonderful but Some of the house isn't very wheelchair friendly though, one of our party was disabled and it did prove an issue on times, however most of downstairs is accessible, with a few...

Visited Saltram House yesterday afternoon on the spur of the moment after a cycle ride around the park. We've never been before despite living 5 miles away, and what a treasure we have missed. The rooms are beautifully furnished and decorated. Our little girl was given a Stag Bag which contained a pair of antlers, a clicker counter, magnifying glass... More

A good National Trust house with impressive gardens. You can walk around the estate without actually paying to see the house and gardens. A restaurant is also on site and located within the old coaching house, accessible from car park without entrance fee.

We visited Saltram on a rather chilly spring day and had a really great time. We booked onto a tour of the house and the lady who did the tour really brought the house to life. Highlights for us were the kitchen areas and the oriental wall paper, telling the story of tea. One of the most highly detailed and... More

Saltram is beautiful, and I really enjoyed my recent visit with my mum and sister. We managed to spend a good few hours making the most of the house, the gardens, and the cafe, where we shared a lovely cream tea! I'm not a National Trust member, so it was rather pricey paying the entrance fees to both the house... More

Turned up to enable the Children to have a quick play in their park - and it was not open AGAIN. This happened quite a few times and the excuse this time 'waiting for safety equipment' - very poor planning as this week is the first week of the Easter Holidays. Good job we are NT members so at least... More

The grounds of Saltram House are a pleasure to explore. The cafe is very good and they put on some good events throughout the year. It's just a shame you can't escape the noise of the A38 and Embankment Road. It is still possible to get some relative peace and quiet on the other side of the estate park. It's... More

Saltram gardens full of spring colour, so peaceful. The car has been improved from last year making it less of a muddy experience. The walk down to the river and bird hide showed a lot of birds including redshanks, oyster catchers and herons.

This was a real surprise. We did the West Wing tour and then the house overall. It kept us really interested for a long time. AND when we went to the cafe, the hot chocolate (I said it was a cold day) came in an old coffee pot and gave me three cups for the price of very little and... More
