House is fine, but for us the grounds win. Boys (8 and 10) loved climbing the trees and charging about. NT had left out tennis, badminton, footballs, croquet and other toys on the lawns which was brilliant.

It was 30 years since we last visited Saltram and it was great to see how they now cater for children and get them interested. Our two granddaughters were given satchels containing an information book, fake antlers (except the girls wouldn't put them on so I wore them instead)' a torch, magnifying glass and other bits and pieces to help...

Lovely grounds. You don't have to be a national trust member to walk round the grounds. My only gripe is that they need to empty the doggy waste bins more often. People will stop picking up the mess if they can't find a bin that isn't overflowing! Otherwise well kept.

Visited Saltram House in Plympton, Plymouth today. What a wonderful house. Walk through rooms hung with paintings by or provided by Reynolds, Chinese wallpaper in bedrooms (silk painted). For a real change, EVERYTHING in the house is from the house, not period brought in to make a scenery set. Really good value for money, but don't forget to gift aid... More

Visited the new cafe in The Chapel at Saltram for lunch -lovely light lunch with wine. Sat outside but could have sat inside at table laid up with linen cloth, nice crockery and cutlery etc. Not cheap but very pleasant lunch with stroll around the Gardens afterwards.

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...
