Greenway, ‘the loveliest place in the world’, according to Agatha Christie, but then it was her house, will open to the public this week.
A National Trust restoration of the novelist’s home, to the tune of £5.4 million, has returned the home to its heyday, ready for visitors to share in its magic.
Mathew Prichard, Christie’s grandson, said: “What I wish most is that the people who visit it feel some of the magic and sense of place that I felt when my family and I spent so much time there in the 1950s and 1960s. If they do, then our gift of Greenway will be worthwhile.”
