Saltram is the epitome of country mansions where it would be possible to spend hours before becoming bored. There was also plenty to keep the kids engaged.

After joining the National Trust I thought it would be nice to visit Saltram. I was pleasantly surprised at the size and layout of the gardens, they are huge. We had a nice leasurly stroll around a fair bit and then sat on the grass to eat a picnic we had taken in. We did not go in the house... More

Saltram is an amazing place to go. We go once a month for tea and to go on the monthly dog walk. The staff are lovely and very good about the dogs. Would recommend it to everyone.

An outstanding example of English heritage. Very much in the mould of Downton Abbey. The gardens are extensive and well worth a visit

Had afternoon tea at the small cafe in the grounds of Saltram House. Such a beautiful environment and the tea was delicious. Staff were very helpful as my friend and I wanted to share. They gave us ample for £12.95, and it was delicious

We visited Saltram House and gardens whilst on holiday in Plymouth, what a fantastic place to spend a day, the house is really something else, it doesn't have that aroma of a house not lived in, everything in the house is really gorgeous, and is a real treat to walk around, the gardens are really beautiful with lots of lovely...

I walk Saltram quite frequently. Just as great if you cycle or run. It is a great opportunity for the less mobile to get around as it flat all the way around, and they hire out electric chairs. Its lovely to go through the different seasons and see different aspects of Saltram. It is also nice to see the different... More

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
