Nearest town

Brixham (250 yards)

A classic English harbour town with pastel coloured fishermen’s cottages clinging to the hill in crooked rows. There’s a swanky marina complete with restaurants and bars, a choice of beaches and a saltwater outdoor swimming pool. The beautiful coastline here can be explored either by foot on the coast paths or by taking a trip on the ‘Brixham Belle’, which sails to Dartmouth, Paignton and Torquay.

Brixham

Good choice of pubs, restaurants and cafes, which mostly all allow well behaved dogs into their properties, should the weather not be that fine to sit outdoors. Local good coastal walks from Brixham, and excellent ferry crossings to the other Torbay town destinations. Working harbour and marina, which provides excellent seafood choice for whole of Brixham eateries.

Greenway (3 ¼ 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.

Mrs Quigg November 2011

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.

Berry Head National Nature Reserve (¾ mile)

A haven for rare and threatened species, Berry Head is home to one of the largest colonies of Guillemots on England's south coast. The Visitor Centre lets you watch them on CCTV and there are also many other migrant birds that come to the reserve.

The limestone peninsular, which forms the southern arm of Tor Bay, is home to two Napoleonic-era forts as well as gardens rich with wild flowers from May to August and caves that house horseshoe bats.

Top Spot

Napoleonic buildings, rare rock roses and orchids, plus a bird hide and cameras to record the very special Guillemots that nest on the cliffs. There is a new visitor centre opened in 2009, a cafe and parking. It has just received 1.8 million pounds of funding to make this a top place to visit.

Dartmouth (4 ¼ miles)

Historically, Dartmouth was of strategic importance as a port used in the crusades of 1147 and 1190. Dominated by Britannia Royal Naval College, it has two fortified castles protecting the mouth of the River Dart. There are many historical buildings, a cobbled market place, shops, galleries, gourmet restaurants and delicatessens. National Trust Gardens, the South West Coast Path and clean beaches are nearby.

Dartmouth boat trip.

We loved Dartmouth. Use the park and ride bus down into the town, much easier than trying to park.
The one hour boat trip was very informative and we saw Seals.
Take the car ferry across the river and enjoy the scenery on the route back.

We walked to this property from Dartmouth which was a lovely quiet stroll along empty Devon lanes rewarded by a fascinating house with interesting period pieces and historical commentary followed by beautiful gardens with plentiful spots to sit and enjoy all the different styles and views within. For those wanting a snack the tea-room provided a good choice of quality foods served in either courtyard or an airy cafe. The walk back to Dartmouth can be by the same route or take in the Daymark and WW2 relics and SW coastal path if you are feeling more energetic

Walking Bliss - if you're up for it!

We park near this property and rather than visit the house, take to the coastal path. You have a choice of directions, towards Brixham or Kingswear. It's not for flip-flops, buggies, small children or the infirm; you need good stout boots and ankle support but the walk and views are breathtaking. I wouldn't recommend it in very slippery weather, unless you stop when you get to the cliff, but if, like me, you enjoy feeling the weather in your face to feel alive then this is great. Hard core steep in parts.
