Definitely worth a visit

Saltram House and Gardens are truly worth a visit. The staff were very helpful to my dad who felt unwell while in the house. We will definitely be going back soon.

National Trust property where non members welcome with a charge for the parking, £3 i think. Worth it if you are in company and plan to spend a morning or afternoon here. A very pleasant and attractive place. The duck pond being the central point with a pond side cafe to eat outside or inside, or in the courtyard which... More

Saltram House is on the outskirts of Plymouth near Plympton on the river Plym and is accessible only by car. Built in the Georgian period of the 1700's it has always been in the Parker family. Beautiful handpainted silk Chinese wallpapers line the bedroom walls. Theres a wonderful art collection including several by Sir Joshua Reynolds. Momentos of the Parker... More

Came here from Plymouth, what a gem, lovely property with fabulous gardens. We started at the cafe and had a lovely coffee, cakes looked good but too close to breakfast. Went to see about the house entrance and were given a choice of times. We had time to do the riverside walk which was excellent. The house was also very... More

Visited to walk around the grounds & look at the gardens, nice walk around the estate & by the river. It is however spoilt a bit by the traffic noise which carries over the water & the loads of cyclists speeding by. Gardens were nice, even in the rain & the whole place was surprisingly busy.

Very interesting place to visit. Still has most of the original feature, including carpets, wall paper etc from the 16 and 1700s. Fascinating glimpse into the lives of the landed gentry

We've often walked around the walk outside the grounds but very rarely visit the property and wander round the gardens. Saltram is a wonderful gem of a property set in beautiful grounds right on our doorstep. The house itself is fascinating, take time to talk to the friendly room guides to learn more about it's history and the history of... More
