A magnificent Georgian mansion and tranquil garden lie at the heart of this historic parkland.
Saltram overlooks the River Plym and is set in a rolling landscape park that provides precious green space on the outskirts of Plymouth. Strolling along the riverside or through the woodland, you can almost forget that the city lies so close.
Saltram was home to the Parker family from 1743, when an earlier mansion was remodelled to reflect the family’s increasingly prominent position. It's magnificently decorated, with original contents including Chinese wallpapers and an exceptional collection of paintings (several by Sir Joshua Reynolds). It also has a superb country house library and Robert Adam’s Neo-classical Saloon.
Learn about some of the fascinating characters and family stories, including the correspondence between Frances, the first Countess, and Jane Austen.
The garden is mostly 19th century, with a working 18th-century orangery and follies, beautiful shrubberies and imposing specimen trees providing year-round interest.
The holidays are here and the sun has got it's hat on so join us at Saltram for the perfect day out this summer.
We have events and activities every day of the week with organised games on the lawn, teddy bear's picnics, cooking in the great kitchen, garden games and so much more. In fact, with so much going on we thought we'd make it easy for you to organise your day out with a handy fridge planner to download.
