Manor Inn, Galmpton
From the Manor Inn follow Greenway Road through Galmpton, passing the village hall and school, heading towards Greenway. Continue until you pass the caravan park, where you will turn right onto Mill Lane.
Follow Mill Lane until you reach a junction, where you take the left fork onto Hook Bottom Lane, following signs to Greenway.
Continue down Hook Bottom Lane through gate into field. The footpath crosses small stream and heads up to Greenway Road, coming out at the railway halt.
As you reach Greenway Road look out for the railway tunnel which passes underneath Greenway estate, and was part of Isambard Kingdom Brunel's railway route from Paignton to Dartmouth (although it only ever made it as far as Kingswear).
Cross the road and enter Down Copse. Follow the green waymarkers through the woodland to Greenway car park.
Follow the path through the car park, and follow the driveway to Greenway Visitor Reception.
Take a moment to enjoy the views over the River Dart from Greenway drive. The driveway is at its best in spring, when camellias, rhododendrons and spring bulbs.
