About Us

Agatha Christie described Greenway as “the loveliest place in the world”. It was here that she had her holiday home, on the banks of the River Dart. With a long history dating back to the 1490s, the house still retains features added by all generations of occupying families. Now managed by the National Trust, the property offers visitors an extraordinary glimpse into the private life of the Queen of Crime and her family.

Greenway is a magical place to explore, with its rich historical interior and the wildness and mystery of its garden. Agatha Christie set two of her novels here, both of which feature on the Agatha Christie Literary Trail: Five Little Pigs and Dead Man’s Folly. In Dead Man's Folly it appears as Nasse House, and the boat house was the scene of a murder. 

It is possible to travel to Greenway by boat (Greenway Ferry) and by steam train (Dartmouth Steam Train to Greenway Halt (involves a 30 - 40 minute walk to the house). Tickets for the steam train are available to purchase from the English Riviera Visitor Information Office in Torquay.

Parking MUST be pre-booked, but this can be done easily by visiting: www.nationaltrust.org.uk/greenway, or calling 01803 842382.

Greenway is open daily, 10.30am-5pm, from 13 Feb until 30 October, and then 11am-4pm November and December weekends. They are also open 11am-4pm from 27-31 December.
