Greenway, Dartmouth

4.5
Greenway, located in South Devon, was built in the late 16th century and is famed for being the former holiday home of Agatha Christie. Stroll through the Devonian style homestead before heading outside to take in the large woodland and the Dart estuary. Also visit the walled gardens, boathouse (scene of the crime in Dead Man’s Folly), barn gallery, and the battery complete with canons. On busy days there may be timed entry to the house, which you will be advised of on arrival. Make your way there by ferry, vintage bus, or steam train but be sure to pre-book your parking space online or by telephone if traveling by car.

    A really scenic National Trust property. You can go by steam train and get the free bus transfer or you can go by boat. You have to reserve car parking spaces prior to visiting. Definitely worth a vis...  more »

    If you are in this area of Devon Council a visit to beautiful summer home of Agatha Christie at Greenway House. The villa is usually reached by boat from Dartmouth but, booking parking in advance, you can reach it by car. The property is extensive, the villa, overlooking the river Dath, is surrounded by a magnificent park with hundreds of different species of trees and plants. Conversing with National Trust volunteers who assist visitors in the various rooms is a source of interesting stories about the daily life of the writer and her husband the archaeologist. To visit the villa and walk calmly in the Park one must consider at least 2/3 hours, excluding the time the boat arrives.
