Take a look at their website for details about free parking.

Nearest beach

Stoke beach (1 ½ miles)

Stoke Beach is a sandy beach bordered by high cliffs. Accessible via a series of steep wooden steps, the beach enjoys a blissful simplicity with no facilities available. Owned by a nearby caravan site, Stoke Beach is dog-friendly all year.

Nearest walk

Noss Mayo and Revelstoke Drive Walk (½ mile)

A four mile walk which takes in rugged coast, peaceful estuary, wooded riverbanks and the charming seaside village of Noss Mayo. Nice wide pathways make this an easy walk with optional woodland footpaths.

Nearest town

Newton Ferrers (200 yards)

At the end of a steep, narrow lane that leads nowhere but into the village, Newton Ferrers is a little piece of Devon that few stumble across. It sits on the banks of the Yealm Estuary, surrounded by ancient woodland and creeks. Although the village is just 10 miles from the city sprawl of Plymouth, Newton Ferrers teems with wildlife; kingfishers, egrets and herons are often spotted around the water. The heart of the village is the pub, The Dolphin Inn, which is surrounded by thatched cottages – the word ‘idyllic’ will be on the tip of your tongue.

Bantham (7 ¼ miles)

Bantham Beach is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has numerous awards tucked under its sandy belt. Overlooking Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island, you can take the famous sea tractor and head to the island or sit and enjoy the views from the shore. A great surfing beach, the huge swathes of sand and sea allow plenty of space for everyone. Well-provisioned and life guarded in the summer, Bantham is a fantastic family-friendly beach.

Great beach with views across to Burgh Island

Lovely privately-owned, wide, sandy beach. Beautiful views across to Burgh Island, walking access is possible at times, depending on the tide. Good facilities, lots of parking (there is a daily charge, so check before going). We enjoyed a great pizza from one of the gastro-buses in the car park. There are picnic benches in the gastro-bus area, and hot, and cold drinks, and other food available.

Privately owned beach open to the public. A truly beautiful beach. Wide sands, surfing and wind-surfing, rock pools and a delightfully gentle introduction to the South West Coast Path with views over Burgh Island. No dogs allowed during the summer months. Charge made for car parking.

Great family fun beach

Lovely beach with little coves to hide away in, rock pools and lovely clean sandcastle sand; wide enough for kite buggies, best surfing beach on the south coast along with Bigbury on Sea beach opposite. Burgh Island out to sea with its restored evocative 1930's hotel clinging to the edge was the inspiration for Enid Blyton's Kirrin Island as well as a number of Agatha Christie novels! Dogs allowed on the beach Oct- April and then along the far right hand side (west) during the remainder of the year. Beach balls and skimboards etc plus coffees and teas available from the post office cafe back in the village- great estuary view while sipping away on the deck out back. Lunch or supper in the Sloop pub- best to pre book in season

The Ship Inn (½ mile)

In a superb position right on the water, The Ship Inn is a peaceful, traditional pub without juke boxes or quiz machines, perfect for a relaxing lunch.

Stunning location for a course - never mind how the golf goes, you can just stand back and take in the view!

Wembury Beach to Heybrook Bay Walk (2 ¼ miles)

Start from Wembury National Trust car park and from the entrance turn down the slipway to the beach. The coastal path will take you behind the beach and along the cliff tops. You will follow the coast past HMS Cambridge and onto Heybrook Bay where you can return back the way you came or head slightly inland and follow the perimeter path around HMS Cambridge and pick up the coastal path again further on. The walk is about 3 miles, and is quite hilly and can be muddy underfoot.

Greenway (21 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.

Lovely day out

This house is in the most beautiful spot, you could really imagine living there. The gardens are gorgeous and the walk beside the river is great for body and soul - look out for the resident seal!

The setting exquisite. Such lovely views. A walk to the boathouse a must. Trails for the children excellent.

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.
