Eating and shopping

Second-hand bookshop at National Trust Greenway

Give an old book a new home 

Why not pick up a new holiday read at the second-hand book shop at Greenway? All of the money raised through book sales go to the conservation of Greenway. Maybe you can you help to look after Greenway for ever by donating a book or two?

Our work

Downs copse woods at Greenway, Devon

Felling at Longwood Noss plantation 

Longwood woodland near Greenway is an ancient oak woodland with an industrial past and commercial plantation from the 1940's. Over the last 70 odd years this plantation has been managed for its timber and has now reached an age where it should be harvested. The National Trust will be taking on this work during autumn and winter 2019 so why not find out a bit more?

Peek into Greenway's cabinet of curiosities 

We've been searching the collection at Greenway for things that are usually hidden away, and each month are bringing them into focus. In the Winter Dining Room the month's items will form the centre of a display in a 'cabinet of curiosities' and will feature here on the website along with a writing prompt.
