Hotels near the Saltram House
Saltram House is a magnificent Georgian mansion overlooking the Plym estuary just outside Plymouth. Built in the 18th century, it boasts beautiful gardens by Robert Adams and was chosen as the location for the film adaptation of Sense and Sensibility.
The house retains many of its original contents - furniture (including Chippendales), paintings, pottery and porcelain (including Wedgewood vases). Visitors can explore the Velvet Drawing Room, Chinese Chippendale Bedroom, the library, the Morning Room, the Mirror Room and the Great Kitchen.
Some of Adams' original drawings can also be seen, while outside the superb 18th-century gardens contain an orangery, the Chapel Art Gallery and several follies, as well as beautiful shrubberies and imposing specimen trees. There is a tree trail in the garden and walks through the park, woodlands and along the river.
Please note: although the park is open all year round, the house only opens from March-October. The restaurant, shop, gallery and garden also have seasonal opening dates. Please check the National Trust website for exact details.
