Range of terrain to walk from flattish tarmacked roads, to scrabbling around woods, to fields and a cycle path by the estuary. You can do as little or as much as you like. Picnic area, café. Live locally and have been here many times to blow away the cobwebs - usually with a dog and more recently to use the... More

had a lovely family time in the spacious gardens today. Lots of space for the boys to run around and even had the sports gear out for them to play with. Beautifully kept grounds but not 'over fussy'

I took my nieces up to Saltram for a walk around the grounds. They are extensive and offer superb views of the Plym Estuary and Dartmoor. Hours could be spent exploring the grounds so a good pair of walking shoes is advisable. Definitely worth a visit.

every year this venue holds a 3 day xmas fayre with local produce and stall holders. A must for locals and a good value family day out. Beware no credit or debit cards once inside so take plenty of cash and designate a driver as plenty of free alcohol samples. Free to then see house and gardens so really its... More

A lovely palladian house with exquisite interiors and beautiful grounds. Small but well-stocked gift shop, and a restaurant selling a range of hot and cold food and drinks are very also very welcome, especially on a typical autumn afternoon!

Lovely day out to the house and gardens, well worth the NT membership fee! Agree with others that the refreshment prices are a tad steep, but that's often the case with NT, and the quality is good. I'll be going again to see the gardens in different seasons.

Peace and quiet within the city boundary. Immaculate lawns and gardens. Good for the little ones, no dogs inside so clean. Mums and toddlers seem to enjoy the space on a nice day during school times. Games and balls etc available and National trust members park for free. Dog walkers for public park now have to pay.

Being fairly local and a NT member I started using the parkland as a good route to walk with my dog. After undergoing several operations on my leg this year I became a bit housebound and stir crazy not being able to walk or drive. Friends were driving me around so I could hobble about on crutches and the one... More
