My mini holiday trail

Two girls write postcards in a caravan at Saltram

Come away with us and let your little ones go on a mini holiday at Saltram this summer. Build a sandcastle, hook-a-duck and write a postcard in a caravan.

Don't forget your passport

When you arrive at Saltram make sure you pick up a 'my mini holiday' passport and your special passport stamp stickers from the Welcome Centre. Then start your holiday by having a go at some nostalgic and well loved summer holiday games and activities.

There's lots to do on your 'mini holiday'

Trail stops include playing croquet, hook-a-duck, face-in-the-hole board, making a sandcastle and building a den. If you're a very little visitor (under 4) you might just want to spot the smiley ice-cream hiding at each stop.

Does it always rain on your holidays?

Don't worry, stay dry in the house where the trail continues. Pick up a mini suitcase and pop in the postcards that you'll find in each room. When you've collected them all post them in the red postbox in the last room of the house.

You can't miss the caravan

Stir up memories of holidays old and new by stepping into our caravan. Whilst the caravan is pitched up for the summer write a postcard about your holiday memories and stick them to the inside.

Play like the Parkers

The trail is inspired by the Parker family who owned Saltram house and often came on their holidays to Saltram. One of the trail spots is inspired by one of our favourite Parker family photos where the family are playing around on the lawn.
