Ideal for prams and off road walking. If muddy you can stick to the path.

Visit the house for a 'cultural fix' or just take the dog for a walk around the grounds.

Saltram offers various tours - we went on the special Christmas one but were told there are several different ones available during the year including Whole House Tours, one from the servants perspective & the intriguingly entitled 'Kill or Cure' tour. From what we could gather the tours are available on Fridays when the house is normally closed to the public & only the cost of entry to the house is charged (free if like us you are NT members). Our guide was charming and very knowledgeable & had some good stories relating to the Parker family. The Robert Adam interiors are stunning whilst other parts of the house have a more homely feel - especially the siting room & library where you are encouraged to sit down and enjoy the ambiance. Considering how close to Plymouth the property is - it is remarkably peaceful & we took a pleasant walk in the gardens to discover 'The Castle ' a folly sitting high above the Plym estuary. Children seemed to be made very welcome & there are events especially for families. One word of warning the grounds/car park area were rather muddy! Will certainly go again & hope to try out some of the other tours on offer. More info see the website:-

Easy access and several choices; a walk through the gardens including the Lime Walk or a walk along the river or a walk through the woodlands all on the edge of Plymouth.
