It is, of course, one of NT's finest house & grounds in Devon, and the other reviews do it justice. I would add that, unless you have a 4 x 4 type vehicle, watch out for the speed bumps, one or two of which are more of a hazard than you'd find on a public road.

Beautiful house, grounds and gardens to spend a couple of hours. Lovely informative staff that know their history! House itself was fully of great artefacts. Tea and Cake in the Chapel Cafe, loved the idea of mismatched teacups/saucers. Great place to relax.

Went here when my brother visited me, we went on the guided tour of the east wing before walking around the house. The staff were very knowledgeable and were helpful. We enjoyed looking at the wall hangings especially the Chinese ones again the staff were able to pass on a lot of knowledge. We spent about 4 hours here but... More

After more than 10 years we returned to visit this magnificent NT property. The guides continue to provide helpful and knowledgeable information. It appears that the property is now more family orientated and this bodes well for its future. There are beautiful routes for dog walkers, runners and cyclists. We actually found time to walk to the beach. This was... More

We stopped here to look at the house and gardens. There were lots of rooms to go round. My wife found the intricate ceilings fascinating. The café served good food. The below stairs part too was well worth a look.

Saltram has beautiful routes for runners, dog walkers and cyclists alike. I love coming here even just to have a little stroll on my own. Having been to the cafe a few times the staff have always been lovely and friendly, however the food is a let down. I ordered a jacket potato which came out really dry like it... More

This stands out among NT properties of which I have visited a large number. It has most of the original furnishings which also makes a difference. I think the Trust have excelled in trying to engage visitors and children seem to have great fun filling in their sheets. Having a guided tour before proceeding on my own added greatly to... More

Have visited Saltram a number of times and experienced different seasons. The walk around is always enjoyable with or without a dog. The café is pleasant and the food enjoyable. Plenty of parking spaces.
