Greenway
Greenway
Greenway was the private holiday home of mystery writer Agatha Christie. The house is set in glorious woodland gardens on the banks of the River Dart. The interiors feature wonderful collections of silver, books, china, and Tunbridgeware. Greenway House is now open to the public following an extensive restoration project by the National Trust.
Greenway features a woodland garden with native wild flowers underlying plantings of rare half-hardy trees and shrubs. There are country walks along the River Dart and through beautiful woodland. There are special guided tours, including house tours and 'Meet the Gardener' tours. There are also open air theatre events throughout the year.

The best way to visit Greenway is by taking the Greenway Ferry from Dartmouth, followed by a steep walk from the quay to the house and garden. There are also ferries from Brixham, Torquay and Totnes. Or, access on foot via the Dart Valley Trail or John Musgrave Trail. Or arrive by vehicle, through Galmpton village, but note that parking MUST be pre-booked if arriving by car. See the National Trust website for details. The National Trust operates a timed ticket scheme to minimize impact on the house and nearby villages. Please allow 3 hours for a visit, and expect a wait before entry.
