When booking your parking space, please be aware car park charges will apply for non-members: £1.10 per hour, up to 3 hours per session. This can be paid online at the time of booking.

Parking is free for National Trust members but still needs to be booked in advance. Please select the relevant parking option online and enter your membership number. On arrival, members can scan their membership card in the parking meter to get a free parking ticket.

At reception you can then purchase admission tickets or scan your membership card.

We do ask that you arrive within your 30-minute timeslot and limit your stay to three hours for the benefit of other visitors.

Travel by river

The Greenway Ferry Company operate ferry services from Dartmouth and Dittisham to Greenway Quay, making it the perfect way to travel to Agatha Christie's holiday home. If you plan to visit Greenway using the ferry, you don't need to book your visit in advance.

Running from March to the end of October, ferry services depart daily on the hour from Dartmouth Harbour and from Greenway Quay on the half hour.

From Dittisham, ring the ferry bell for the water taxi which runs across the river daily on demand. For more information on tickets, times and prices, visit the Greenway Ferry Company website.
