Saltram House and Gardens is perfect for a great family day out, close to Plymouth but in a world of its own, with over 500 acres of grounds, a lovely Georgian mansion with original contents and an interesting history. A fascinating insight into country estate life throughout the centuries.
There are some impressive collections to explore, including paintings and ceramics, plus beautiful interiors to marvel at. You and the kids can take yourselves back in times by dressing up in Georgian and Regency costumes in Lord Morley's bedroom!
Once you have explored the house, you can visit the garden and lose yourself in secluded walks or relax on the grass. There are expansive lawns that are great for picnics, plus romantic follies, impressive avenues, garden buildings, and a working Orangery to discover. You can even have a game of croquet on the lawn, as there is a set ready, plus a number of other games and equipment.
There are seasonal trails for the kids to follow in both the garden and park, plus a ‘50 things to do' scrapbook. In the house, kids can try the book challenge, and pick up a ‘stag bag' and see how many stags they can spot! The estate is also a great place to walk the family pooch, and there are lots of bins around, making it easy to clean up after them too!
