Creative inspiration

Sophie Hannah, bestselling author and creator of the latest Poirot novel, 'The Monogram Murders,' describes why Greenway is special for her.

'Greenway is an enchanted place - a piece of perfection in a world that is far from perfect. I come here regularly for inspiration, and to recharge my creative batteries in idyllic surroundings. Agatha Christie's decision to make this stunning house her holiday home proves - as if her novels were not already sufficient proof - that she had the most brilliant of minds.'
