In a Vase on Monday: Greenway House

rhododendron in a bowl

This bowl was catching the light beautifully at Greenway House (Agatha Christie’s holiday home) in Devon.

I visited on a glorious spring day at the time of the Camellia Festival and completely fell in love with the place. You can see more posts about it full of camellias, in the drop down list top left of the page.

The garden is huge with wonderful meandering paths giving views of the River Dart

You can even stay there in the South Lodge

  2. What a beautiful place to live in – and write! The scenery is idyllic and, yes, I’d love a greenhouse like that, and the acreage to stand it on.

  4. Ooh yes, look at that glasshouse – whoohoo! Strangely, I have 2 rhododendron flowers just like this that I brought inside after removing some very twiggy growth from R Cheers – they look prettier in that big goblet thing than they do in the little pot I put mine in!

  5. Your post today brought back very happy memories of visiting this fabulous house and garden almost 20 years ago – I’m an Agatha Christie fan so just had to visit. The bloom in a bowl is eye-catching.and beautiful.

    It’s really quite some place, isn’t it? Of course, I would love a greenhouse like that, but only if I could afford the help to maintain it!
