We visited Salram House for the first time this year to see the Nutcracker..What a lovely display inside the house. I would like to thank all the staff at Saltram for putting on such a lovely display in such difficult times.
We are already looking forward to visiting Salram again next year...

Lots of parking.
Beautiful parkland with lots of well-maintained and well-marked paths for folk of all abilities. Scenery ranges from dense old woodland to sweeping river bank - absolutely beautiful.

Visited to walk our dogs after 2 days of heavy rain
Car park total nightmare ….not enough parking space
Very haphazard….people driving both ways whilst trying to find somewhere to park
Cars stopped ,waiting for cars to leave , thus causing jams
A lot of the parking was on grass ……filthy cars leaving due to mud from the very soggy grass
This is not acceptable
The south west gets a huge amount of rain …the National Trust should be more prepared for this , it needs to look after the visitors ….and their expensive cars much better than it does
I complained about the dreadful parking conditions a couple of years ago ….and here we are again …nothing changes
It seems the National Trust wants to take the money and run
It most certainly needs to provide better parking conditions that are clean and not muddy
It needs to provide appropriate facilities for its members whose numbers have grown massively over the last
5-10 years as well as other visitors who wish to enjoy the properties that the National Trust are custodians of
You should not have to clean the mud from your car after visiting a National Trust property

Stunning architecture and decor in the house can, at times, take ones breathe away.
Only got to see downstairs, will definitely be back again

Extensive house built in the 1700s, it contains much of the original contents and provides a unique insight into country estate life through the last 300 years. Fabulous plasterwork ceilings, original Chinese wallpaper, stunning collection of paintings all make this place a real gem. As one would expect the grounds are superbly laid out and contain interesting features including an Orangery, folly, neo-classical Temple of Jupiter and even a WWII inspection pit from when troops were stationed here in the last war.

Saltram is a hidden gem on the edge of Plymouth that feels like you're in the middle of nowhere.

This estate is a great example of why organisations like the NT are so important, vast estates like this have been taken over by cities elsewhere and yet this is preserved for the nation for ever.

Probably the only negative I have about Saltram is that some of the presentation and engagement is a little rough around the edges and not particularly refined or engaging. A lot of the text is presented in quite an old fashioned and boring way rather than creative, however this is something which I am sure could be changed over time.

All of the staff and volunteers that we encountered were very friendly and knowledgeable and helped visitors throughout. The Volunteer in the Chinese Mirror Room (Long blond hair c.late 60's early 70's, glasses and fairly short) was brilliant and shared some humour with us about some of the mirrors, she was brilliant!

The house is very interesting, unfortunately only the ground floor is open at the moment due to various reasons but there is enough on the ground floor to keep interest.

The wider grounds are lovely but don't expect super formal gardens as this house does not have them.

All in all a very lovely visit!
