Saltram Gardens (National Trust), Plymouth
(4.5/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Still a largely undiscovered treasure, and the result of centuries of sophistication and extravagance, Saltram is the perfect family day out: close to Plymouth and yet in a world of its own.

Home to the Parker family for nearly 300 years, the house with its original contents provides a fascinating insight into country-estate life throughout the centuries. Fine Robert Adam interiors and beautiful collections bring the 'age of elegance' to life at Saltram. Learn about some of the fascinating characters and family stories, including the correspondence between Frances, the first Countess, and Jane Austen.

Surrounding the house is a beautiful 20+ acre garden, in which there are many plants of interest year round as well as historic statuary, follies and an orangery. The garden has excellent accessibility all year round and the many pathways that weave through the myriad of plants, from stunning large trees to herbaceous borders, provide sights and smells to capture the imagination of all ages.
By using our Plymouth family vacation planner, you can arrange your visit to Saltram Gardens (National Trust) and other attractions in Plymouth.

  • Lovable and beautiful place. Although few of the new volunteers are not that friendly anymore. But if you ignore some unpleasant personalities at the entrance, you are for a natural beautiful treat. Children, Adults and OAP's will all will enjoy the place.
