Saltram House, Plympton

Saltram House, Plympton, Plymouth, Devon PL7 1UH View on map

George II mansion, complete with its original contents and set in a landscaped park. Robert Adam worked here on two occasions to create the state rooms. These show his development as a designer, from using the conventional Rococo, to the low-relief kind of Neo-Classical detail that became his hallmark and with which he broke new ground in interior design.
