We took our grandchildren to Saltram House and Gardens last week and they really enjoyed it. In the main house, the children could do a 'mouse trail'. There are 15 small wooden mice hidden around the house and the children had to kick them off their list when they found them. All the staff were very helpful and friendly to the children. It is a beautiful house and well worth seeing. In one of the rooms was a dressing up box. We were all encouraged to try on the period costumes (children and adults..!) so we had fun with that.
Out in the gardens, the children had a sensory trail to follow and even though it rained a bit, they still enjoyed finding the many things on the list ie., the tallest tree, beautiful flowers, prickly plant etc., Great family day out and even better if you have a family National Trust card.

Free parking and you can walk in a circular route outside the house and gardens alongside the Plym estuary. National Trust members can visit house and gardens for free, otherwise there is an entrance fee. Featured in Sense and Sensibility film.

Visited at a very quiet time - sadly the house was closed but the gardens are stunning with lots of places to walk.

We visit Saltram regularly for a walk round the grounds and a look in the shop. You can get a coffee / food in the cafe too.

Excellent national trust property with great gardens to explore and a great circular walk along the estuary and up the woodland path. Often events he'd and an excellent craft / fine art shop in the chapel.
