    Made enjoyable...

    The general ambience of Greenway. Feeling very special. Ringing the bell in the Quay for a boat trip to Dittisham and then a boat ride down to Dartmouth. Visiting the house and reading about Agatha and her family. Seeing all their collections. The Views, the beautiful views and the gardens. Wonderful Dartmouth and watching the Candlelit procession on the Saturday night. A wonderful winter get away.

    Very comfortable

    The setting was stunning. The apartment was decorated beautifully and was very comfortable. A range of transport available. We were able to order a Sainsbury's delivery, so did not have to use the car at all during the week. Having the grounds available for use in the morning and evening was lovely - although some visitors stayed quite late at the end of the day, after the staff had gone home, because the entry gate was left open when staff left. Some visitors arrived to walk dogs in the grounds in the evening too, which was not what we had expected. Crabbing and catching shrimps in the evening was great fun and tennis rackets were also provided. Those were very nice touches. We had one of the best holidays that we had ever had. Thank you. Maybe post up a closing time for the site - so that people do not stay or turn up out of hours.

    Made special by:

    We are Poirrot fans and thoroughly enjoyed seeing where Agatha Christie lived and some of the spots where filming took place. The gardens were also beautiful to walk round, especially after closing time. We enjoy staying in National Trust and Landmark Trust properties because you are made to feel that you actually own the property whilst you are there. However, the very friendly and helpful staff are always available to provide more information and help if required. The staff at Greenway hit the balance just right.
