Lovely on a sunny day

Lots of different walks for different levels of fitness and ages. Lovely scenery on any walk that you do. Shame that you now have to pay for parking.

Saltram House is owned by the National Trust, It lies above the east bank of the River Plym say 45 minutes walk from the east side of the centre. Fields and paths surround the house and garden and offer great opportunities to walk, cycle and take the dogs out. You may see interesting birds on the River Plym depending on... More

We visited Saltram, and were so very impressed. The gardens are a beautiful delight, and I did not want to leave. This is a beautiful place, and if you are in the Plymouth area, I highly recommend it. The tour of the building is also fun and very interesting. The docents are so welcoming and knowledgeable. Put this on your... More

Admission by ticket on timed entry so it’s never crowded. We had only 10 minutes to wait. The ceilings are beautiful, mirrors are provided so as not to crick your neck. The Chinese wallpaper is exquisite. There was something to admire in every room. The kitchen and other servant work rooms were the most interesting. The Steward gave a good... More

I lived just three hundred yards from this stately pile. I never went inside!!! but walking the dogs through the woods and across the paddocks was a regular treat away from suburbia. A great place to stretch one's legs without too much effort. Sited near the tidal reaches of Plymouthj Harbour the National Trust has developed a salt marsh environment... More

The gardens are great for young and old alike. The house is also interesting and the cafe serves great food.

The garden is certainly large enough to fill a morning, but it is similat to so many I have seen that it fails to generate excitement in me. In the other hand, the Cafe offered more to delight the eyes and taste buds than can be handled in several visits. For us, the house was the real gem.
