NT property, close to major roads. Well signposted. Friendly helpful staff at welcome centre. Helpful knowledgeable room guides within property. Nice looking gardens but rainy weather meant we did not get to see at full potential. Plenty of open green space for dogs and children, would be ideal for families. Reasonably priced food served by pleasant staff at Park cafe.... More

We spent over 2 hours visiting this fascinating house. The guides were very informative and we felt we really got to know the house and its history. Lovely grounds. Not to be mised is afternoon tea or lunch in the beautiful chapel tea room, especially on a busy Saturday when the cafe was full of families.

We took my brother and sister-in-law, who were visiting Devon, to see this beautiful house. It was an amazing experience. The volunteer guides were both knowledgeable and friendly. The house contains very diverse collections of family memorabilia. Although two rooms were undergoing major restoration one could still envisage their luxuriousness when filled with furniture. We also enjoyed very pleasant lunch... More

We go here pretty much every weekend for a family walk. Beautiful scenery and green space for dog walkers. Lovely picnic spots and the house itself is wonderful. The staff are lovely and very polite/friendly. They usually do a trail like Disney, animals or themed trails. You get a form and have to find the clues to get an award.... More

Excellent venue for any visitors to the Saltram estate, i.e. you don't have to pay the charge required for entry to the National Trust Saltram House and gardens to take refreshment there. There is, however, a car parking charge for non NT members. The quality of the food and drink is as consistently good as would be expected for a... More

I love visiting saltram for pleasant walks, jogs, and cycles. It's a popular place for all ages. Families, dog walkers and couples frequently visit here. The duck pond is lovely and the cafe a nice stop for a coffee and cake!
