Depending on time of year there are different events such as gingerbread house making, night walks, birdwatching. The house itself is in lovely condition and worth a visit but the grounds are well kept and free to visit apart from parking charges. Lovely cafe by the stables that offers good quality tea and coffee.

We visited on a drab Monday in June. The lady on reception was very helpful and offered a guided tour as we had arrived quite early (an unexpected bonus). The converted chapel used as a traditional tearooms is very nice and different in nature from the usual NT "family" style. It has china cups and tablecloths. As with most NT... More

A beautiful place with varying activities available. From the quaint cafe and restaurant for a cup of tea and cake to the 2 mile loop for a relaxing walk on a Sunday afternoon. Just perfect.

Saltram House gardens were full of flowers and birdsong fro our walk with family. The grandchildren loved the spy trail, and the bare fallen trunks of trees, left for youngsters to climb on en route. Our relaxing afternoon finished at the café with ice creams and pots of tea.

Saltram gardens are a wonderful place to take the family - for kids to run around in peace & tranquility. There are so many footpaths that you can walk around in peace, away from the crowds without regard seeing anyone else! Lots of benches to sit on & wonderful views. There's a small children's play area/park near the main entrance... More

We visit Saltram on a weekly basis and always have a great time. They ladies know our daughter (she's 3) by name and always make a huge fuss of her. Gardens are beautiful all year round and it's a lovely place to visit and blow away the cobwebs.
