Having been to Saltram many times before we decided to sample lunch and cakes from the Cafe. We absolutely love the grounds and it is great for a walk, with or without dogs. The house is lovely also. The whole experience is let down by the fact that the Cafe is simply sure. The food is not fresh and is... More

Although bank holiday weekend and there were a lot of cars in the car park, due to the size of the grounds and the fact you get a timed ticket to enter the house it never felt crowded. Beautiful Georgian NT house with really friendly informative room guides. Gardens also lovely for a stroll with quite a few hidden features.... More

Saltram House and Gardens are truly worth a visit. The staff were very helpful to my dad who felt unwell while in the house. We will definitely be going back soon.
