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 leaves have started falling and the temperature is cooling so it must be Autumn.
Changing colours in the park and garden create the perfect place for a seasonal stroll and we have plenty of walks to choose from. Pop into the Welcome Centre to pick up your map of hear about our favourite walks we think you should try.
How better to reward yourself after an Autumn stroll than a visit to the Park Cafe or Chapel Tearoom. The menus reflect the changing season with delicious treats, lunches and warm drinks for every taste.
Saltram has events, activities and exhibitions to see you through the Autumn months from a traditional apple day to half-term activities for all the family.
