Visiting the Chapel Tea Shop is like stepping back in time to a cultured, refined era. There are tablecloths, china tea cups, saucers, tea pots, milk jugs and sugar bowls. It all looks so pretty. There is a very good choice of teas and coffees. The cakes are delicious. The staff are very helpful and pleasant.

Saltram is a thoroughly enjoyable experience. A house and lovely gardens rich in history is clearly looked after by the national trust and the volunteers who staff the building are exceptionally welcoming. A place not to be missed!!

We had to park quite a way from the house as there were so many cars there, it was pouring with rain so we were not too happy when we arrived, but the cheerful volunteer guide in the first room soon lifted our spirits with her friendly chat. A nice house with plenty to see, the kitchen was showing utensils... More

This was my second visit to Saltram and on a sunny day it makes such a difference. Parking is free for NT Members and you can either walk around the parkland, or the grounds and house or both. There are a few places to eat and I chose the Stableyard for afternoon tea where both the food and service was... More

We loved the 'Games' lawn with equipment for badminton, ball games and croquet. Our little great granddaughter had a lovely time crawling around on the grass. The flowering plants, shrubs and trees were glorious. We will return again and again.

For a small fee you can park up and take the long walk around the perimeter.As a national trust member the gardens are lovely all year round and there are plenty of events put on for families.

Visited here on 16th May 2015 and loved it. A lovely house with lots of art and fantastic furniture. The rooms were stunning. The National trust volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable.

This a really lovely Georgian house. There's some wonderful Adam decoration. The rooms are well presented with plenty of furniture and interesting items. An excellent visit. Only disappointment was lunch from the restaurant in the stableyard. Rather slapdash service from staff who don't seem to care. The mushroom rarebit isn't a rarebit at all - just a few mushrooms on... More

Great day out on the 13th of May. The tour of Saltram House was the longest we have spent looking around any NT location. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly and imparted little nuggets of information that brought the past to life. Afterwards spent an enjoyable hour wandering around the gardens. Had a nice bowl of soup at lunchtime to... More
