Greenway house and garden: 'the loveliest place in the world'

Take this extraordinary glimpse into the beloved holiday home of the famous and much-loved author Agatha Christie and her family.

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 don’t miss the large and romantic woodland which drifts down the hillside towards the sparkling Dart estuary. The walled gardens are home to the 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.

There are many different ways to get here, including ferry, vintage bus and steam train. If you'd like to arrive by car you must pre-book your parking space online or by telephone (01803 842382). Timed tickets to the house will be issued at visitor reception on Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout the summer, and at busy times, to ease congestion in the house.
