Dogs are welcome at Saltram but in the parkland only and are not allowed within the garden.


Most of the garden route follows hard-standing paths, but there steep slopes and narrow paths in places. There are benches throughout the garden to offer you places to rest along the way. See the access statement for more information on access at Saltram.
