Winter visit so not all rooms were open but the extraordinary way an older house was incorporated into a neo-classical showpiece was fascinating. Beatiful 2 mile circular walk along river Exe was most enjoyable. Extra parking would be useful as we visited after lots of...More

Saltram is a National Trust property, so parking costs here unless you're a member. If you just walk to the grounds though, there's no charge to walk about on the trails. There's a variety of paths, mostly tarmac, to follow and is popular with dog...More

Really worth a visit during the festive season, you can wander in the gardens after dark seeing it with atmospheric colored lights and Christmas music, then go through the house guessing the fairytales each room is dedicated to. Friendly national trust volunteers are there to...More

I'd heard about the Enchanted Christmas as Saltram so wanted to see it for myself and I wasn't disappointed. The house was beautifully decorated and we enjoyed exploring the different fairy tales. We then went to the tea room as it wasn't dark enough for...More
