Royal William Yard & Saltram House – Devon Days Out

Royal William Yard & Saltram House… I’m lucky enough to live in such a gorgeous part of the world, and I love finding new things to do/ideas for days out in the area. And I thought, why not share some on the blog?! Obviously if you’re not local to Devon, this post might not be as helpful to you. BUT, it might just inspire you to come down for a holiday!

Royal William Yard is one of my favourite places to go for food/drinks (and probably the only part of Plymouth I actually like…). We always have such a lovely time down there, and our day out at the end of September was no exception.

We also visited Saltram House which is just outside Plymouth. Somewhere I’d never been to properly before but what a hidden gem it is! So here is a short overview and a few pics of both…

Royal William Yard – Wagamamas & Cocktails

We almost always go to Wagamamas when we go to Royal William Yard – I mean, it’d be rude not to, wouldn’t it?! I love the food there, and they are sooo good with allergies which is such a blessing!

We had a main each plus a couple of sides. And their cocktails are so inventive too – I went for the Jasmine Bellini and it was wonderful.

You absolutely must have a stroll around (even if it’s terribly windy!!) if you visit. The buildings are amazing, and I think they’re doing up another section which is exciting! We also visited Seco Lounge, and although didn’t stop in this time, I highly recommend Le Vignoble.

Saltram House

After Royal William Yard, we headed out to Saltram House as it is somewhere we’d never been before and only about 20 mins from central Plymouth. The gardens/woodland there are enormous – so much exploring to be done! We of course got some autumnal pics before heading inside…

You could definitely make a whole day of it at Saltram House, but we just went for a quick afternoon stroll and popped inside too. The house itself is stunning, and everything inside is original to when the family actually lived in it. Pretty cool – and had us dreaming about one day living in a house as beautiful!

(I didn’t take many pictures inside out of fear of being rude!).

The End

I’ll hopefully make a few more of these posts, as and when we do interesting things in Devon worth sharing with you! So if you’re in Devon and at a loose end, remember to have a check of my blog to see if I’ve written anything new!
