Agatha Christie's Greenway House

Greenway is the holiday home that Agatha Christie bought in 1938 for £6,000. Located on the banks of The River Dart she referred to it as "The loveliest Place on Earth." It was not a place of work but a place to relax and escape the world of writing although the house did provide plenty of inspiration for her books.

In Five Little Pigs (1942) there are detailed descriptions of the foot path leading to the Battery overlooking the river as well as the Battery itself as this is where the murder occured and the movements around these in central to the plot.

In Towards Zero (1944) the location opposite the village of Dittisham divided by the river is cnetral to the plot.

In Dead Man's Folly (1956) multiple locations at Greenway are clearly included such as the boat house, the landing stage, greenhouse, tennis courts and the lodge.
