Somebody has spent a lot of time thinking up fairy story themes and then decorating the rooms. We went with friends and we had to use a wheelchair. The staff and volunteers couldn't have been more helpful. Also, when we reached the kitchens, we had freshly baked mince pies.

We have visited Saltram and have enjoyed the festive fayre over the years although last year we gave it a miss because there was nothing new or interesting. However we decided to give it another go this year but it soon became apparent that the National Trust have become very greedy. They "kindly" waived the £3 carparking fee in favour... More

Whether you are a member of the National Trust or not, this is a good day out. Goods walks around the park, family days out or for romantic couples, good for cycling and pet friendly. I go here at least once a month as I love it. Excellent day out.
