Saltram House & Gardens

Add to your favourites
Description

Standing high above the River Plym, with magnificent views across the estuary, the rolling landscape parkland now provides wooded walks and open space for rest and play on Plymouth’s outskirts.

Saltram was home to the Parker family from 1743 and reflects the family’s increasingly prominent lifestyle during the Georgian period. The magnificent decoration and original contents of the house include Robert Adam’s Neo-classical Saloon, original Chinese wallpapers, 18th-century Oriental, European and English ceramics and a superb country-house library.

Outside, the garden’s planting offers something of interest all year, and there is also an 18th-century orangery and follies to explore. After wandering along scented pathways and the magnificent lime avenue, why not treat yourself to afternoon tea in the Chapel tearoom?
