Illuminated garden

A family enjoys the trees illuminated for Christmas

This Christmas the garden will be washed with a glow as an evening trail is lit up with a rainbow of colours.

All aglow

Follow the trail around the garden and see the garden glittering and sparkling with festive cheer. The house, Orangery, Lime Avenue and some of our most loved trees will be lit for the festive period with a new route through the exotic orange grove.

With new feature lighting and even an interactive spot where you control the colours of the lights, there's lots to keep you entertained if you wrap up warm and visit us.

See if you can spot the fairy houses as you venture around the garden at night on the family friendly trail. Perhaps peer through the windows to see if the fairies are home preparing for their own Christmas.

Don't forget to make a pitstop at the end of Lime Avenue for a mulled wine or hot chocolate, or why not get cosy in the chapel tearoom or winter courtyard cafe?

Handy info for your visit

What time is the illuminated garden open?

The garden opens at 10am with last entry at 7.15pm although the illuminations will come on at dusk each evening.  Please check the opening times page for full opening times information. 

Can I bring in my pushchair?

Yes, however it can get really busy in the house and garden at Christmas so if you'd prefer to enjoy your visit without your pushchair please feel free to pop it into the pushchair parking bay in stable 12.

Can my dog come along too?

Unfortunatley not. Dogs are very welcome in the parkland; however the house and garden where Enchanted Saltram is held is a dog-free area. Dogs are allowed into the Winter Courtyard Cafe under the tipi situated in the stables. 

Is the house & garden accessible for wheelchairs?

Due to numerous sets of steps up and down in the house there is a limited route for wheelchair users which goes through 4 of the 7 rooms open at Christmas. The garden route is wheelchair accessbile. The garden  route takes approximatley 30 - 45 minutes to walk depending on your pace.
