2nd visit and this time as the house wasn't fully open there were special tours around the downstairs rooms of the house, as the servants would experience them. Personally I wish more NT properties did this throughtout the season..it's really interesting.
Lovely walks around the grounds of the house but also a longer circular walk that goes down to the coast, probably taking about an hour as a casual pace.
Work popping into the gallery that's in the house gardens as well... some interesting art and crafts.

Saltram, which is a Grade 1 listed building, is well worth a visit. With an old manor house at its centre, Saltram was improved and 'gentrified' over the centuries. It is in a commanding position and can be glimpsed from various places around Plymouth( although the old tip at Chelson has formed an artificial hill, blocking the views to the estuary!) The interiors are fascinating and range from chinoiserie and Robert Adam grandeur to homely and utilitarian in the grand kitchen. There are extensive grounds; you can walk around the outer park without having to pay a fee (I think the parking is free and there's plenty of space) or you can get a garden ticket or one for the combined house and garden when the latter is open. The inner gardens are really lovely and there are sometimes drama productions there. You will also find a gallery and restaurant there; it's pretty easy to spend an entire day at Saltram!

This is a famous NT property just outside Plymouth. The house is large and the amount you can visit has expanded significantly in the last few years. In the past there have been candle lit events, but due to helth & safety they are not going to happen again which is a real shame.
The gardens and grounds are lovely and well worth a visit

Another good walking spot just outside of Plymouth.
Here you find many miles of paths around the Lovelly Saltram House, in the entrance to the house you will find a National Trust Gift Shop and a large cafe.
Parking is free as is all the walks but pay dearly to enter the house (Unless your a member of the Trust)
