Just returned from an evening wander through the beautifully lit Saltram House and Gardens. About half a dozen of the West Wing rooms beautifully decorated and lit and the magnificent trees creatively illuminated. Well worth a visit. Open until the new year I think.

Somebody has spent a lot of time thinking up fairy story themes and then decorating the rooms. We went with friends and we had to use a wheelchair. The staff and volunteers couldn't have been more helpful. Also, when we reached the kitchens, we had freshly baked mince pies.

Recently spent the afternoon here. Beautiful day, lovely gardens, excellent views. Tour of the ground floor decorated for Christmas each room a different fairy tale. Volunteers in each room very knowledgable. Lunch at the cafe good value. Usual NT shop.

We have visited Saltram and have enjoyed the festive fayre over the years although last year we gave it a miss because there was nothing new or interesting. However we decided to give it another go this year but it soon became apparent that the National Trust have become very greedy. They "kindly" waived the £3 carparking fee in favour... More
