Still a largely undiscovered treasure, and the result of centuries of sophistication and extravagance, Saltram is now the perfect family day out: close to Plymouth and yet in a world of its own. Saltram stands high above the River Plym in a rolling and wooded landscaped park that now provides precious green space on the outskirts of Plymouth.

The house, with its magnificent decoration and original contents, was largely created between the 1740s and 1820s by three generations of the Parker family. It features some of Robert Adam´s finest rooms, exquisite plasterwork ceilings, original Chinese wallpapers and an exceptional collection of paintings, including many by Sir Joshua Reynolds and Angelica Kauffmann. Learn about some of the fascinating characters and family stories, including the correspondence of Frances, the third Countess, with Jane Austen, and John, Lord Boringdon´s, great friendship with Sir Joshua Reynolds.

Explore the magnificent garden and romantic follies, and enjoy discovering many secluded spots throughout the landscape park and estate bordering the Plym estuary. The gardens are predominantly 19th-century and contain an Orangery and several follies, as well as beautiful shrubberies and imposing specimen trees. The house starred as Norland Park, the Dashwood´s family home in the film adaptation of ´Sense and Sensibility´.
