    Made enjoyable...

    South Lodge is a lovely house in a wonderful setting with breathtaking views. Having the run of the Greenway gardens felt an immense privilege. It was the perfect setting for a relaxed family holiday, which all three generations enjoyed - real food for the soul.

    Amazing location

    The Agatha Christie connection was the main draw but South Lodge is in such an amazing location. We couldn't get over the beautiful view every morning. It was very special. The staff at Greenway could not have been more friendly and helpful. We spoke to lots of people, including gardeners, reception and those working in the shop and all were so pleasant to deal with.

    Made special due to:

    The fact it was in Agathas grounds, it had been booked for almost 2 years. I am a lifelong 'fan' of Agatha and it was amazing going down to her house with Henry the dog at any hour and realising she lived there and enjoying the beauty. It was a lovely cottage with the lovliest of views.
