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.

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.
