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.

  • I have been to Saltram so

    I have been to Saltram so many times, and loved the walks and the house, alas I am unable to walk too far now so when I was you have a tramper my heart lifted. After winter is over or maybe before on a fine day I shall be able to get around the grounds again. Well done all of you, I am fairly local but it gives me a day out without hassle.
