Agatha Christie's Greenway House

Greenway is the holiday home that Agatha Christie bought in 1938 for £6,000. Located on the banks of The River Dart she referred to it as "The loveliest Place on Earth." It was not a place of work but a place to relax and escape the world of writing although the house did provide plenty of inspiration for her books and in particular Dead Man's Folly. It is easily accessed from any of our Torquay self catering accommodation. Our Muntham Apartments and Town House make a superb luxury base from which to explore Agatha Christie's Torquay. Our Bedford House Apartments are superbly located close to Torquay harbour and town centre. Our Hesketh Crescent Apartment is to be found in the Meadfoot area of Torquay close to one of Agatha's favourite beaches.

The house is now owned by the National Trust and is open to the public throughout most of the year.
