The National Trust's Greenway, Devon, is the holiday home of the famous and much-loved author Agatha Christie and her family.
Greenway house and garden: 'the loveliest place in the world'
At the beloved holiday home of the famous and much-loved author Agatha Christie and her family you can take a glimpse into their lives.
This relaxed and atmospheric house is set in the 1950s, when Agatha and her family would spend summers and Christmases here with friends, relaxing by the river, playing croquet and clock golf, and reading her latest mystery to their guests. The family were great collectors, and the house is filled with archaeology, Tunbridgeware, silver, botanical china and books.
In the garden a large and romantic woodland drifts down the hillside towards the sparkling Dart estuary. The walled gardens are home to a restored peach house and vinery, as well as an allotment cared for by local school children. A visit to Greenway isn't complete without seeing the Boathouse, scene of the crime in 'Dead Man’s Folly', and the battery complete with cannon. Greenway has been accredited by the International Camellia Society as a 'Garden of Excellence.' It is the first National Trust garden with this accreditation, and one of just seven gardens in the UK to be recognised as a ‘Garden of Excellence’ by the International Camellia Society.
