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

We had a great time here. There are lots of rooms to look round and although not art fans, there were plenty of other items of interest to us - the furniture, dressing up clothes (adult sizes too) and the dolls house. We walked through the gardens where there are currently lots of camellias in flower and daffodils due to... More

We visited in February when the house was only partially open, but what was available was interesting and well set up. The volunteers were very knowledgeable. The gardens at Saltram are also beautiful and worth taking time to explore.

The house was not open on the day we went but we were able to walk around the gardens. Very well maintained. Daffodils just starting to come out.

went here for first time a couple weeks ago and will certainly go back. Another great dog friendly place in Devon. There is a picturesque 3 mile circular walk encompassing beach and woodland. I have never seen so many dogs at one national trust cafe! Well worth a weekend stroll although it was busy and this wasn't even in holiday... More
