Take this extraordinary glimpse into the beloved holiday home of the famous and much-loved author Agatha Christie and her family.The relaxed and atmospheric house is set in the 1950s, and contains many of the family's collections, including archaeology, Tunbridgeware, silver, botanical china and books. Outside you can explore the large and romantic woodland garden, with a restored vinery, wild edges and rare plantings, which drifts down the hillside towards the sparkling Dart estuary.

Agatha Christie and family were great collectors of many things! The National Trust must have had a difficult time sorting out the “things”. No wonder the grandson decided to give the house and it’s contents to the NT rather than try and decluter before selling...More

Interesting house for Agatha Christie fans. Beautiful gardens located on the edge of a river Dart. The best Devon cream tea too.

The grounds were good to wander around. Staff/Volunteers were knowledgeable. The information was comprehensive and the contents of the house varied and fascinating. It was a perfect finale for a five day break in the area and I highly recommend a visit.

Dogs are welcome here and will love the beautiful walks around the estate. There are water bowls and tethering poles outside the main reception. Dogs are not allowed in the house.
