gorgeous gardens with an even more interesting house

Well looked after gardens, beautiful walks in the fields and woods surrounding it, and a house with centuries of history to explore make this a very worthwhile visit.

Visited the house recently and was surprised that only half the building was open. The staff on duty were very helpful regards questions but I suspect the attraction is the grounds that are extensive.The cafe on site has good food at reasonable prices

We made a point of diverting here from Sussex en route to a brief stay in Cornwall on the basis that the guide and website indicated the house was open. Wrong! Just 4 rooms were open .and we were hugely disappointed. Volunteers very helpful but were limited by what we could see. Grounds not accessible for dogs ( so dog... More

So glad we changed our usual National Trust fix of Christmas atmosphere to a visit to Saltram. The ground floor rooms were decorated in a themed style, Sleeping Beauty and Narnia were especially memorable, although all were excellent. Clearly much thought and effort by staff and volunteers had gone into the success of this event. We followed our house tour... More

This area is lovely to walk around and the house is very interesting. After you have walked around Saltram, there is a cafe, a nice way to end you walk.

Used to frequently visit Saltram in order to walk my dog as he always enjoyed it. Visited again recently for a lovely wintery walk (no dogs in tow!) and found it equally as pleasing as I remembered it - although was unusually busy for winter so the cafe wait was a while!

Surrounded by hundreds of acres of land, Saltram House, a National Trust property is a great place to walk around and relax. Lovely walks down to the estuary, safe for children to cycle, animals to walk, its really great at any time of year.

I have never been to Saltram before but as it was open over Christmas then it was an excellent opportunity. Only part of the house was open but rooms were decorated with a fairy tale theme and a lot of work had gone in to creating it. Congratulations to the staff and volunteers who were full of cheer and ever... More

Congratulations to all concerned for the brilliant Enchanted Christmas display. The rooms, each with a different theme fairy tale were done with such detail. The sugar craft team must be mentioned for all their work on the hats and cakes etc. I think if Saltram continues to put on a Christmas display like this each year it will be soon... More
