It was 30 years since we last visited Saltram and it was great to see how they now cater for children and get them interested. Our two granddaughters were given satchels containing an information book, fake antlers (except the girls wouldn't put them on so I wore them instead)' a torch, magnifying glass and other bits and pieces to help them search for antlers as they went around the house. Not only were the antlers on stuffed stags heads but in pictures, on wallpaper, china, silver dishes. The room stewards were very good at giving the girls clues as to where they should look. Our final count was 65 . No prizes but it certainly livened up looking around the house.
Saltram is very beautiful. The grounds delightful but we were only able to walk around for a short while as it was a very hot afternoon.
We had our lunch in the cafe. As with all NT properties, the quality and standard of food was excellent.
The girls played in the adventure playground and then home. Another enjoyable afternoon out with our granddaughters.

Lovely grounds. You don't have to be a national trust member to walk round the grounds. My only gripe is that they need to empty the doggy waste bins more often. People will stop picking up the mess if they can't find a bin that isn't overflowing! Otherwise well kept.

Visited Saltram House in Plympton, Plymouth today. What a wonderful house. Walk through rooms hung with paintings by or provided by Reynolds, Chinese wallpaper in bedrooms (silk painted). For a real change, EVERYTHING in the house is from the house, not period brought in to make a scenery set. Really good value for money, but don't forget to gift aid your entry fee to help National Trust keep restoring. Enjoy wonderful gardens and brilliant volunteers through the house to provide information. To think I left it this long to visit. More fool me!

Visited the new cafe in The Chapel at Saltram for lunch -lovely light lunch with wine. Sat outside but could have sat inside at table laid up with linen cloth, nice crockery and cutlery etc. Not cheap but very pleasant lunch with stroll around the Gardens afterwards.
