Visiting Saltram House and Gardens
I haven't been to Saltram House and Gardens yet...
Saltram overlooks the River Plym and is set in a rolling landscape park that provides precious green space on the outskirts of Plymouth. Strolling along the riverside or through the woodland, you can almost forget that the city lies so close. Saltram was home to the Parker family from 1743, when an earlier mansion was remodelled to reflect the familyâ€™s increasingly prominent position. It s magnificently decorated, with original contents including Chinese wallpapers and an exceptional collection of paintings (several by Sir Joshua Reynolds). It also has a superb country house library and Robert Adamâ€™s Neo-classical Saloon. Learn about some of the fascinating characters and family stories, including the correspondence between Frances, the first Countess, and Jane Austen. The garden is mostly 19th century, with a working 18th-century orangery and follies, beautiful shrubberies and imposing specimen trees providing year-round interest.
