The house is very well maintained and presented and the tour around was given by a very well informed guide. The cafe provides a pleasant place for a snack with a shop providing scope for gifts. The lovely walk around the grounds takes you through the grounds and past the river. It is a beautiful place to visit

Spent a lovely Sunday here, shame the house didnt open to noon but then we wouldnt have found Plymton Bridge Woods not Plymton Castle. The visit was good value as Trust members and we both enjoyed. It was lovely also that people could come and walk with their animals and families and use the facilities for free before having some well earned refreshments in the Cafe.

This is a lovely house in beautiful surroundings. It hasn't got as much inside, as some of the National Trust houses but it is in a very peaceful area & the gardens are lovely.

Saltram house is magnificent, with rooms designed by Robert Adam and an absolutely mind-blowing kitchen. Every room is just gorgeous, and the garden not too big but rather pretty. Even though there is no electricity(!), I would not think twice if I had the chance to live there.
Getting there by public transportation was an ordeal, though. We arrived at Saltram House completely frustrated and tired. All visitor information (web, leaflets) just gave directions on how to get there by car. From Plymouth railway station, we had to walk to the visitor centre, then back up to the bus stop on Royal Parade. The bus driver didn't know where to stop, nor did her colleague, and the information from the visitor centre said: take the bus stop near the roundabout with pampas grass, or if you've missed it, near McDonald's (three hurrays for McDonald's! Would've never found it without). From there, there were signs, but the path passing underneath the highway was isolated and creepy. We were glad that there was still daylight upon our return...
Entrance fee about 10 pounds, free for National Trust members. Upstairs not accessible w/ wheelchair.
