Shaldon (6 ¼ miles)

Shaldon is an unspoilt village situated on the mouth of the river Teign between Torquay and Teignmouth. It has a thriving livelyhood based on the estuary. On a clear day, Portland Bill can even be seen despite being 50 miles away. A pretty village with two churches, a boutique, butcher, coffee shop and many conserved areas for all to enjoy.

Shaldon village

Lovely walk with our dog along the estuary into Shaldon village with a few shops/cafes. London Inn pub by the bowling green friendly pub with excellent beer and food (Best to book for Sunday lunch). If you don't like the Hi De Hi type holiday with amusements and cheap trinket shops then this is a place to visit

Very English Shaldon

A little hidden gem this village right on the seafront facing Teignmouth on the estuary, nice stylish shops and narrow streets with a bowling green and several nice pubs with good food.

Miss Gilchrist October 2013

Lovely pretty village, with a host of beautiful places to eat and drink. We tried the live music at the Ferryboat Inn, and had a lovely early evening looking out over the harbour from their beer garden. The shops were good quality, though during the off-season (October) I presume they have shorter opening hours (10-4 average) and some appeared closed. Everyone we met was very friendly, and the atmosphere was relaxed and refined.

Shaldon village life

Shaldon village hosts a variety of activities throughout the summer. There is a market on the village green in traditional costume every week and the well know water carnival where sand castle competitions and decorated boats abound. The highlight of the year has to be Shaldon Regatta, which takes place around the late summer bank holiday in August where everyone is welcome to enter and regatta boats are available if you don't have your own. Also five-a-side football, beach volleyball, swimming competitions and sandcastle competitions abound. Highly recommended.

Greenway (9 miles)

Agatha Christie's holiday home nestles on a crook of the River Dart in a beautiful woodland garden that is home to such horticultural treasures as Monterey pines, eucalyptus, China roses, myrtle and Turkey oaks. For a magical experience that's also kind to the environment, travel there by boat. 'Green ways' ferries leave from Dartmouth, Brixham and Torquay. Following a major restoration project, The National Trust has re-opened the house to the public, where quirky collections of memorabillia offer a glimpse into the private life of the well-loved crime writer. For house opening times and an events list, please visit the Web site.

Dr Brown July 2014

The journey to the house by way of the National Trust ferry was enjoyable as was the walk back to Dartmouth along the Dart Valley Trail and ferry (higher or lower will do, the former is cheaper). Unfortunately the house itself was a little disappointing with an over cluttered interior that did not really tell any particular story. There were bits and pieces of interest but overall it seemed as though everything from different times and sources was put in that could be which detracted. The entry to the house is timed but we still felt that it was over-crowded and NT should consider making the house visits guided only. The walled gardens were good with a beautifully restored peach house providing a highlight.

Well worth a visit to this house, an effort to get there as you can't go by car unless you pre-book. It was a nice ride there in the boat but you would need good weather. Lovely spring flowers in the grounds. Cafe/restaurant disappointing as there were no main meal available.

Enjoyed by All

A lovely house in beautiful surroundings on the banks of the River Dart. Good to see the interiors haven't been messed around with and still look as if Agatha and her family have just popped out for a minute. I can see why she loved it so much and the gardens are a delight. Thoroughly enjoyed by all - including a 22 year old male! Well worth a visit but, if arriving by car, don't forget to pre-book a parking space.

A lovely boat ride from Dartmouth, but overall the house was disappointing. A hotch potch interior and hard to believe it was inhabited up until 2004. All furniture pre-dates the turn of the last century. The children did enjoy completing their quiz sheets 'can you find' and I can really recommend the pasties in the coffee takeaway shop (not the main cafe).

An inspirational place!

This beautiful house set in wonderful surrounding is well worth a visit. It is easy to see why Agatha Christie loved this place and penned a number of her novels here. The surrounding woodlands with views of the River Dart are superb. You can take a ferry from Dartmouth to get to Greenway but we chose to take the foot ferry from Dittisham (another charming little place). I would highly recommend a visit to this lovely area.

Visiting Greenway is a lovely way to spend the day, they also have occasional events so it is worth having a look before you go to see if any take your fancy. If you like gardens, I would recommend visiting Greenway as I thoroughly enjoyed it.

'The Loveliest Place in the World'

Agatha Christie was right to call this the 'loveliest place in the world'. Arriving by ferry is really the best way to see it. A stroll in the pretty woodland gardens followed by some delicious homemade food in the Barn Cafe, rounded off with the return trip on the ferry makes for a thoroughly enjoyable day out.

Tuckers Maltings (2 ½ miles)

England's only traditional working malthouse that is open to the public.Take a guided tour and see how barley is turned into malt for local breweries using the original Victorian machinery.
