About

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. 

If you are travelling by car to Greenway, you will need to book your parking in advance. You can do this through the website: www.nationaltrust.org.uk/greenway  Alternatively, why not travel by river with the Greenway Ferry Company? There are services departing Dartmouth and Dittisham daily. For times and prices, visit www. www.greenwayferry.co.uk

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 19 Feb until 30 October, and then 11am-4pm November and December weekends. 

Dogs: Well behaved dogs on short leads are welcome in the garden, café and shop. Assistance dogs welcome in the house.

      An absolute must do! It feels like the family are expected back any minute. So much is left in place by Agatha's family and the guides are very knowledgeable and ready to answer questions. Read full review
