Just a pleasure to share time at this glorious setting and admire what this huge and grand house has to offer - Please do not rush this visit as special things can catch the eye of those looking hard enough in the right places. A privilege to have spent 3/4 hours at Saltram

We have been to the house several times but still enjoy it. Our daughter booked the Friday tour which is 'behind the scenes' which was excellent,
Each tour guide has a 'different version' of events.

At Saltram, there is a wonderful house, with very informative room guides. A beautiful gardens. Walks that weave around the Estate, down to the River Plym, wildlife plentiful, a good place to take children to spot insects, birds and wild flowers.

A beautiful house that is carefully looked after by the National Trust in lovely grounds on the River Plym. A lovely day out, especially in hot weather as the house can be cool in more ways than one. It always amazes me how fancy life was......very different to the miners cottages only a few miles away. Well worth the entrance fee.

Wonderful house with fabulous pictures by Joshua Reynolds and Adams saloon out of this world. Lots to see with the kitchens being one of the highlights. Unusally for the national trust you can take you dog in the grounds and there are some marvellous walks with views of the river.
