National Trust Saltram

Still a largely undiscovered treasure, and the result of centuries of sophistication and extravagance, Saltram is the perfect family day out; close to Plymouth and yet in a world of its own.

Home to the Parker family for nearly 300 years, the house with its original contents provides a fascinating insight into country-estate life throughout the centuries. Fine Robert Adam interiors and beautiful collections bring the ‘age of elegance’ to life at Saltram.

Learn about some of the fascinating characters and family stories, including the correspondence between Frances, the first Countess, and Jane Austen.

A Tramper can be hired from the National Trust shop to explore paths around the estate and the formal gardens.The main Tramper routes are mainly level with gentle slopes. Some optional routes can be bumpy and muddy in places. The routes will be explained to you when you hire the Tramper.

A hire fee of £2.50 per hour is charged. Car parking is £3.00 (check website for up to date figure). Entrance fee applies only to formal gardens but not exploring the Estate by Tramper.
