A warm welcome in the house this winter

Chinoiserie ornaments and wallpaper in Saltram House, Devon

Between November and February we undertake essential cleaning and conservation work to the house and close the upstairs, however there's still lots to see.

Home to the Parker family for several generations, Saltram is a Georgian jewel rich with original collection and architecture. The Saltram you see today is an elegant Georgian façade built around a much earlier house. It was acquired by George Parker in 1712 and remained one of the Parker family homes until 1957 when it was transferred to the National Trust.

The house in winter

During winter the House and Collections team dedicate their time to essential conservation work in the main parts of the house which include the Robert Adam rooms. This means that some of our rooms and the upstairs of the house are not open between November and February.
