The house although interesting was shrouded in scaffolding was well worth the visit. We booked a car park space and didn't use the train, ferry or bus as one of our party is disabled

If you are at all interested in Poirot, Miss Marple or Agatha Christie in general you will enjoy all that Torquay offers, from the walk along the seafront to The Grand Hotel where she honeymooned to the Rock Walk high over the Bay. Take a 1940's vintage bus tour or open topped double decker bus.

This National Property House and Garden is certainly work visiting especially if you are a Agatha Christie buff. The tranquil gardens with lovely views of the Dart river are a sight to enjoy.

Greenway feels as if the Mallowan family just stepped away and allowed the guests to tour the home. It is a wonderful glimpse into their lives on holiday. The collections of china, books, and other artifacts are a delight to view. The grounds could almost require a second trip to really see them all. We chose to ride the vintage... More

Loved it all please allow a full day to enjoy the Greenway experience a National Trust Property of great distinction. To get there catch the vintage bus from lots of locations or arrive by steam train or boat.There is very limited car parking and you need to pre book if you wish to take your car.

We recently booked a trip on the Vintage bus tour to Greenway House. What a fantastic day (although shame the heavens opened and stayed open). We boarded an old vintage bus, the driver Chris was a lovely man who gave us a really informative commentary throughout the journey from Torquay to Greenway House. Although he wasn’t a local he knew... More
