Lovely to cruise along the river to get to Agatha Christie's summer holiday home on the banks of the River Dart. Best way to get there, although be warned of a steep hill to walk up to the house, however the NT do provide a car to drive the rest of us up to the entrance.

Great value at £7.50 return journey from Torquay to Dartmouth - departs at set times just once per day but the times were ideal and it gave us three hours in Dartmouth, arriving at lunchtime. The commentary both ways from staff on the boat was funny and entertaining. Brilliant trip... Thanks very much indeed.

It is a short trip up the river but there are glimpses of the house and views of the boat house from the river. The commentary on the return journey was very informative and humorous.

Booked a trip to Greenway online. The website was easy to follow and the whole process straightforward. Finding the pier and the boat was easy and the trip enjoyable. We were very fortunate with the weather which certainly helps, when you sail beyond Berry Head it is a very different experience than being in the Bay!! The crew were very... More

A pleasant trip up the beautiful River Dart to Agatha Christie's summer home 'Greenways' on a sunny, warm afternoon. A steep walk up to the house [not recommended for the less-agile] from the quay. A very interesting house although perhaps a little less grand than one first expects. A walk through the gardens down to the water's edge is very... More

This punctual little ferry carries its passengers across from Dart Harbour to its neighbouring Kingwear jetty. This is where the railway was terminated when the Admiralty blocked the railway bridge proposed up stream to take the trains to Dartmouth proper. So today Dartmouth has a railway station, but no railway!

A great little cruise: friendly staff, great views and value for money. We also travelled up the Dart on the one hour excursion: a good choice.

Lovely way to get to Greenway House from Dartmouth. Commentary from Captain; Hilarious. There is plenty to see as you go up and down this scenic river.

as you chug across the river. Lovely little village/town too but the ferry gives the grandest views.

The Greenway ferry is a bargain. Great trip in lovely surroundings and a commentary from the captain to bring some of the views to life. Combine with a steam train ride from Dartmouth to Greenway House for a good day.
