It is a long and winding road to get to Greenway House, the holiday home of Agatha Christie. Don’t believe the Sat Nav as it takes you into a cul de sac in a village about 2 miles away. You must book your car parking space online or by telephone before you arrive or you won’t be let in – so already you know you are going to a very special place.
It is all worth it – just LOOK! this is the view from the car park!
And further along the tarmac drive you see more of the River Dart
I was lucky enough to be there on a gloriously sunny Spring Day – they have been precious and few! (As I write this post there is rain, wind, cold and sleet, beating against my window – I neeeeed this post to cheer me up!)
In front of the house, the enormous magnolias took my breath away!
Below is the view from the front door – imagine waking up to this on a sunny spring morning!
and looking up from a path that leads down to the Camellia Garden
The gardens in general are completely splendiferously, romantically, beautifully gorgeous! But I have to say the area described as the Camellia Garden is a little underwhelming – beautiful blooms had to be searched for and the arbour has definitely seen better days
everywhere there are beautiful views of the River Dart – shimmering in the sunlight

I would have taken all day to record the names of all the Camellias but in my mind I could hear Cathy of Rambling in the Garden asking me the names and so I recorded my favourites
This one is Marjorie Davis
I hope this post has conveyed some of the beauty of the gardens ….. there is more to come.
