Travelling to Greenway

There are different ways for your group to travel to Greenway. If you have any questions, the team are here to help on 01803 842382.

By coach

Full-sized coaches cannot access Greenway, but there’s a dedicated parking space for midi-coaches, which can seat up to 35 people. This must be booked in advance.

By ferry

Groups can travel across the water from Dartmouth to Greenway on the ferry. You need to book your ferry crossing directly with Greenway Ferry Company by either emailing email or calling 01803 882811.

Full-sized coaches can park in Dartmouth where groups can hop on the ferry to be transported to Greenway.

Access from Greenway Quay

From Greenway Quay there’s a 10-minute woodland walk to Greenway visitor reception. Please note, the walk is steep in places, but there are benches along the route.

If members of your group are unable to do the walk, we can offer a car service that meets visitors at the quay. We can shuttle those who are most in need of assistance to Greenway.

Self-guided tours at Greenway

Greenway is the perfect place for a self-guided educational visit. If you would like to plan your visit, please contact us at

Schools can benefit from an Educational Group Membership, which is an annual membership giving us free access to the whole school group at National Trust places.

Price and perks

We love groups at Greenway and will try to make your visit run as smooth as possible. On busier days your group will be met outside visitor reception and provided with timed tickets to ensure you have easy access to the house.

We also offer discounted prices for groups of 15 or more visitors and, of course, entrance is free for National Trust Members and children under five years old. Check Greenway’s prices page for more information.

Who is eligible for free entry?

Registered tourist board guides (on production of a valid badge), coach drivers and tour leaders escorting groups of 15 or more. National Trust members also receive free entry, so it is at your discretion whether to refund the entrance fee to members if you have included it in your package – this is not refunded by the National Trust.

Members must bring their current membership cards with them to avoid paying the full group rate. If any of your group would like to join the National Trust please direct them to our Membership page or call 0344 800 1895.

If you're planning a group visit you can request our free Travel Trade Pass and you and a friend or colleague will gain free entry to over 300 of our places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for 12 months. There’s nothing quite like seeing or experiencing somewhere for yourself to help you plan a successful visit. To receive your pass, call 0344 800 2329 or email us at
