Saltram is a great day out. It has some lovely walks around the main house. The paths are flat and it's easier enough for prams and wheelchairs to get round. The house it's self is wonderfully wonderful. It has cream teas with old China cups and a strainer for your tea leaves. (Main House only). There is also another cafe... More

Saltram has a good vibe despite the vast numbers of visitors. We came along late afternoon with friends from London. The weather was warm and the park and garden looked great. We could not get into the house or the chapel tea room which were just closing. despite the slight disappointment which was caused entirely by our own laye decision... More

Wonderful house and gardens with a pleasant walk along the river - no charge for the walk although you will have to pay £3 to park. I just wish the plants were labelled as I wanted to know what some of the trees were!

Saltram is a beautiful house set in well tended gardens. It is full of interesting articles and the staff really enthuse when they tell you about them. They are very knowledgeable and made the visit very worthwhile. It is certainly one of the best National Trust Houses I have visited, and the tea room in the Chapel one of the... More

It is, of course, one of NT's finest house & grounds in Devon, and the other reviews do it justice. I would add that, unless you have a 4 x 4 type vehicle, watch out for the speed bumps, one or two of which are more of a hazard than you'd find on a public road.

Beautiful house, grounds and gardens to spend a couple of hours. Lovely informative staff that know their history! House itself was fully of great artefacts. Tea and Cake in the Chapel Cafe, loved the idea of mismatched teacups/saucers. Great place to relax.

Went here when my brother visited me, we went on the guided tour of the east wing before walking around the house. The staff were very knowledgeable and were helpful. We enjoyed looking at the wall hangings especially the Chinese ones again the staff were able to pass on a lot of knowledge. We spent about 4 hours here but... More

After more than 10 years we returned to visit this magnificent NT property. The guides continue to provide helpful and knowledgeable information. It appears that the property is now more family orientated and this bodes well for its future. There are beautiful routes for dog walkers, runners and cyclists. We actually found time to walk to the beach. This was... More
