Peek behind the plots at Agatha Christie’s Greenway

Posted by kelly in DartmouthAttractions

Torquay is famous as Agatha Christie’s birthplace, but her summer home - Greenway, near Dartmouth is THE place for fans of the author to visit.

Dartmouth Holiday Cottages Nestled on a hill overlooking the river Dart, Greenway gives a fascinating look into the life and family behind the novels.  The property is now owned by the National Trust, and includes many of the family’s personal possessions and collections.

Agatha loved South Devon, and the family spent many a summer hidden in the peaceful grounds of Greenway. The stunning property boasts its own gardens, tennis courts, pool, air raid shelter and quay.

Visitors can wander the peaceful grounds, explore the house and even play the family piano!

Even getting to Greenway is an adventure, as visitors can choose to arrive via ferry on the private quay, or pick up the 1940's bus from Torquay and Paignton for a nostalgic experience.
