I live quite near to this National Trust property and have visited many times. It is set in its own parkland, and as usual for the NT, it is very well kept. The house and grounds are open from Easter until about September. Easy to get to by car, but there is no direct bus route. Parking is free, and dogs are allowed in the parkland but must be on a lead in certain parts. Joshua Reynolds, the English artist was a frequent visitor to Saltram as he was a friend of the Parkers, the owners in the 18th century. Lots of interesting items in the house. During the summer different functions are held in the grounds, eg. jazz in the park, craft exhibitions etc. Well worth a visit.

Am not a NT member but that does not stop anyone from using the park area of this property, be it young or old. There is "feeding the ducks", a number of walks or runs as many people do. The dog can be exercised, there are picnic tables to use and plenty of free parking, although it is at a premium some days. The park cafe is well frequented. All in all if you are looking for a relatively cheap family excursion then this is highly recommended.

Saltram House is owned by the National Trust so normal admission charges apply to enter the house and gardens. Many people visit to walk the outer path which on one side runs along the river Plym estuary then returns via the farm land and grounds of the Saltram estate.
Fairly well signposted from the main A38 trunk road through Plymouth and with plenty of parking available on site.
A restaurant and shop are located onsite which offer a good range but can be quite pricey as with most National Trust estates.
A nice place to walk the outer path and enjoy the fresh air away from the city.

When you visit this property, where ever you go around this house, and garden's you can see, local history and the beauty of the grounds, which are lovingly cared for by volunteers, plus a dedicated team of National Trust employee's, come and see for yourself, just the surrounding Park and Gardens are excellent for all ages, to visit.
