Excellent venue for any visitors to the Saltram estate, i.e. you don't have to pay the charge required for entry to the National Trust Saltram House and gardens to take refreshment there. There is, however, a car parking charge for non NT members. The quality of the food and drink is as consistently good as would be expected for a... More

I love visiting saltram for pleasant walks, jogs, and cycles. It's a popular place for all ages. Families, dog walkers and couples frequently visit here. The duck pond is lovely and the cafe a nice stop for a coffee and cake!

We visited saltram house as part of my partners birthday weekend. We were not disappointed. The grounds were beautiful and the house was absolutely stunning. We will be returning in the summer to enjoy the long walk with the kids. Definitely worth a visit if your in the area.

Both the house and the gardens at Saltram are interesting. There are expert guides to help and inform you. In the period leading up to Christmas there were several rooms open and decorated for Christmas - a new departure for the NT here. There is a cafe selling very nice, reasonably priced food.

This area is lovely. A beautiful escape in the middle of Plymouth. I have been visiting for over 40 years. I have now stopped because the National Trust have started charging for parking which had always been free and there have been no changes to warrant suddenly charging, and the NT staff run around like the Gestapo telling people what...

Chaotic cafe. House not fully open, and room stewards overbearing. The welcome at the entrance made one feel that we had to listen to the history, when some people like to wander on their own. The only place we felt at ease was the servants pantry a lovely chap. Information folders not large enough too dark to read, and could... More
