Fabulous Christmas displays inside the house with several rooms themed as Disney stories. Outside, the gardens are lit up with coloured lights and give an amazing atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

Just returned from an evening wander through the beautifully lit Saltram House and Gardens. About half a dozen of the West Wing rooms beautifully decorated and lit and the magnificent trees creatively illuminated. Well worth a visit. Open until the new year I think.
