To walk around the grounds at present (April) the bluebells are splendid. There is much going on around the paths and new areas being created for fun and interest. To finish or start your visit with tea and cakes is lovely, as you can sit inside, or out. If seated in the courtyard you will be surrounded by the magnificent... More

Saltram is close to Plymouth, has lovely grounds and a very good tearoom, but to my mind it doesn't stand out from a lot of other National Trust properties. As a NTS member it was free to me but I probably wouldn't pay to visit a second time.

First time to visit this National Trust property beautiful house with extensive gardens. The silk wall coverings were really interesting and the guides very knowledgeable and friendly. The cafe by the duck pond really good value had a lovely homemade carrot and coriander soup with chunky bread.

What a lovely place. We walked through the house, the orangery and the immediate grounds. The staff interacted with us and were very knowledgeable about their venue. We enjoyed their repartee and friendliness. We had a meal in the cafe. A snack and coffee, very nice. The car parks were full and the overflow car park was filling up -... More

We visit saltram on a regular basis with the dog and kids. There is a lovely walk all around the grounds and the only thing you pay for is parking, unless u have a national trust membership and that is free too. Haven't been inside the house or used the cafe facilities. Loads of parking. Will definitely keep returning

Live locally and it's a favourite place to walk the dogs and admire the gardens. The outer perimeter walk is approx 2 miles with a couple of small hills but nothing too taxing. Great for kids, cyclists and dogs....wooded areas to explore and even a little beach (tide dependant). Can get muddy after rain tho. The actual gardens are a... More

Easter holidays?????? Come and join NT for one of our egg hunts??????? NOT at this property! Let down yet again 12 months after our last visit. We've visited several properties to take part in their egg hunts and this place is restricting it to Easter weekend 'because it's a flag ship property'! ALL THE MORE REASON TO HAVE IT RUNNING...
