Event description

Description


Join us on Sunday 11th August for a fabulous day out at Greenway either via Steam Train from Paignton or River Cruise from Dartmouth.

After a multimillion pound refurbishment by the National Trust, Greenway House is open to visitors.

Sitting on the banks of the beautiful River Dart with simply stunning views, Greenway House and Garden is run by The National Trust. Formerly the holiday home of Agatha Christie and her family, it holds the family collection of the famous author. The gardens are home to over 2,700 species of trees and woody plants which are just waiting to be discovered.

Greenway is an extraordinary glimpse into the private holiday home of the famous and much-loved author Agatha Christie and her family. The relaxed and atmospheric house is set in the 1950s, and contains many of the family's collections, including archaeology, Tunbridgeware, silver, botanical china and books. Outside you can explore the large and romantic woodland garden, with a restored vinery and peach house, wild edges and rare plantings, which drifts down the hillside towards the sparkling Dart estuary.

In a place where time has stood still, immerse yourself in a visually beautiful cruise and Greenway House and Gardens, a legacy now for everyone to enjoy.

The Barn Café

There's seating inside, outside and upstairs. The ground floor of the Barn Café is also home to a second-hand book shop, so you can have a browse whilst you eat. As well as daily specials such as soups, salads and one-pot meals, there are always sandwiches, jacket potatoes and savoury cream teas on offer.

Picnics

You're welcome to enjoy picnics in the garden; there are benches dotted around which enjoy views over the River Dart, as well as picnic benches at the edge of the car park. We request that the outside seating in the courtyard is used only for food and drinks which has been purchased here at Greenway. If you're looking for somewhere sheltered to picnic, there's the bandstand and marquee in the Walled Garden.
