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, especially at Christmas.

 

 

Home to the Parkers


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 care of the National Trust.

Visited Saltram hundreds of times never really knowing how it came to be the place we enjoy today? This animation brings to life the history of Saltram and how it came into the care of the National Trust.

The house in winter


The house will be closed from Monday 7 January 2019 until it re-opens on Monday 21 2019 January so that the house team can take down all the Christmas decorations and undertake some essential conservation work. 

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. 

Please check the opening times page for more informtaion on when the house is open.
