The house was very interesting and contained much about Agatha's life there. The peaceful setting overlooking the river Dart was very relaxing and the weather helped to create an interesting visit

A bit wet so went into house first but a bit busy (due to weather I think). Then went into grounds. Lovely gardens but hilly in places. For some reason I struggled with layout... More

Being big fans we wanted to do this on our time here. It wasn't as straight forward as we thought but was worth the effort to get such an insight into her life. A must do.

If you're an Agatha Christie's fan, Torquay and the mile are a must (besides, Torquay worths a visit even if you're not a fan). even better if you can do it during September, where the Agatha Christie international festival is held. Doing the Mile walk is a great way not only to learn more about the writer, but also to... More
