NOT SUITABLE FOR PASSENGERS WITH WALKING DIFFICULTIES AS INCLINE UP TO THE HOUSE FROM THE FERRY
Agatha Christie loved nothing better than escaping with her family to Greenway, their Devon holiday home. Following the launch of an appeal to raise £5.4 million to help pay for major restoration work, the National Trust will open Greenway House to the public from Spring 2009. For the first time, visitors will have the opportunity to view the many personal collections and mementoes of our best-loved mystery writer and her family. he Trust is sharing the process of restoring and caring for the many fascinating items, collected by the family, with visitors who will be able to watch conservation in action.A visit to Greenway will take visitors, all of whom will be encouraged to arrive by green transport, on a 1950s holiday, painting an intimate portrait of Agatha Christie not only as a writer, but as a mother, wife and hostess. Overlaying her own collections are those of Rosalind and Anthony, who made Greenway their permanent home from the early 1970s.
