A house full of treasures

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.

We're delighted to welcome you back to the house

The house is open Thursday - Monday 11-4 (please check opening times)

Closed for over a year, the house is now open and volunteers will be welcoming visitors again. There will be some changes to ensure that the rooms are safe, so please follow the guidance of our team.

Initially, the route through the house will be limited, but you'll still be able to enjoy Robert Adam's Saloon and Dining Room, works by Joshua Reynolds in the drawing rooms, and the impressive kitchen.

Please see our homepage for current opening times and information for your visit.

Staying safe 

In line with the easing of restrictions, we've reopened many of our houses. Visits are limited and entry to the house is not guaranteed on the day you visit. The safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff remains our top priority. We'll continue to provide hand sanitiser and stick to our high standards of cleanliness, we recommend that face coverings are worn in enclosed and crowded areas.

We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.

Ornate interiors

 
The lifestyle the Parkers enjoyed can be clearly seen through the sumptuous original furnishings and significant collections still on display, including stunning paintings, ceramics and textiles.
 

Feast your eyes on Robert Adam’s beautiful neo-classical saloon, lose yourself in the stories in the Chinese wallpaper and wonder at the sheer volume of books on the library shelves. Whether you prefer the opulent magnificence of the Boulle desks and clocks or the functional simplicity of the copper pots and pans in the kitchen, Saltram has it all.
