Literary riches at Greenway

At Agatha Christie’s holiday home we're celebrating this special place’s literary connection with an exhibition of Christie's 'secret' letters to her longstanding publisher HarperCollins arriving at Easter, a literary podcast recorded at Greenway, a book club to join and much more.

The cupboards in the Winter Dining Room at Greenway are filled with collections

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 each month's items will form the centre of a display in our 'cabinet of curiosities' and will feature here on the website along with a writing prompt.

Listen to our literary podcast series 

In the final episode of our new literary podcast series, we explore the Devonshire holiday home of the prolific crime writer Agatha Christie. Not only was Greenway Christie’s place of rest and relaxation, it was the setting of three of her fictional murders.

Give an old book a new home 

A second-hand book shop is now open on the ground floor of the café, with all of the money raised through second-hand book sales going to the conservation of Greenway. Can you help to look after Greenway for ever by donating a book or two?
