One of the Trust's hidden treasures, Saltram makes for a perfect family day out: close to Plymouth and yet in a world of its own. The magnificent house with its original contents gives a fascinating insight into rich and sophisticated country-estate life.
A much loved green space of Plymouth, Saltram Park welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. Whether they cycle, stroll, picnic, spot wildlife or give their four-legged friends a good run, all will agree that that this beautiful space is very special.
Saltram’s historic parkland is a rare survival of an 18th-century estate, which at its height was made up of 4,000 acres of land and provided income for the Parker family and employment for many locals. The park continues to be a working estate today, with much of the land used as permanent pasture and cattle can often be found enjoying the sunshine in the fields around the house. There are 500 acres with a remarkable range of different habitats, including farmland, beaches, saltmarshes, meadows, woodland and an estuary, as well as the 18th century folly, known as the Amphitheatre. The rest of the park is enjoyed by locals who visit daily for a dog walk, cycle, run or just to take in the beautiful countryside without having to travel too far from Plymouth.
The Elizabethan House is a historic property laid out in the style of a merchant or sea captain’s home from the 1600s. The house is currently closed due to essential conservation work.
