Secluded along the border between Devon and Cornwall lies the delightful Tamar Valley. The ruined towers of its once significant mining industry have been evocatively reclaimed by the lush natural landscape, which meanders along the rivers Tamar, Tavy and Lynher. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the region is rich in both beauty and history, and provides a haven for a variety of wildlife. Nestled in the region are stunning gardens, refined historic properties and quirky towns, which combine to form the Tamar Valley’s unique heritage.

Having arrived by boat at Greenway Quay, stroll up through the woods to discover this atmospheric house which was the beloved holiday home of Agatha Christie. Filled with 1950s Christie memorabilia and the family’s extensive collections of artefacts, it’s the perfect place to learn about the great author and her family life. Wander through the lovely gardens to the Boathouse, which served as the scene of the crime in Dead Man’s Folly.
Great alternative attractions include the Agatha Christie trail in Torquay, or any of the lovely historic houses and gardens in the region.
