Good if your a member of the National Trust you can visit the gardens and house. Unfortunatly the rest of the grounds have become so popular with cyclist it seems dangerous to walk the paths without looking over your shoulder constantly. I can get very busy and parking is sometimes difficult

Lovely play area at entrance. Yummy cream tea in the chapel. We had a garden trail which the boys loved as it was looking for signs, doing an activity and getting a sticker on a passport. Perfect for a 4 and 2 year old. Thank you national trust!

Saltram is National trust owned and run. It is a beautiful house full of family treasures, and lovely gardens to wander round which are relatively on the level so easily wheelchair accessible. It is timed admission to the house so not too many people are in there at the same time which makes it easier to view the rooms. There... More

Saltram is lovely. There is the circular route that takes you alongside the estuary, through the woods. Lots of runners, cyclists and dogs enjoy the walk. But there are other lovely walks around the estate that shouldn't be missed. The house is well worth the visit. Being National Trust, it is well looked after and maintained. The gardens are breath...

Excellent building and contents. The park cafe had a good selection where you could even buy a picnic .Walks around the gardens... More

The walk around saltram is brilliant. Great place to walk the dogs. It is hilly and uneven, to be aware if you have mobility issues. They do now charge for parking, I think it is around £3. Unless you are a national trust member. Haven't been into the house in years but it's a nice place to spend a couple... More

We love visiting Saltram. It is a great house, lovely gardens and enjoy looking at the art. You will love feeding the ducks, etc. The shop is good. Quite a peaceful place to visit.
