Greenway Ferry from Dartmouth

2019 Service – Runs Everyday


Overlooking some of the most stunning views of the river Dart stands the home of Agatha Christie – the worlds Queen of Crime.  There is certainly no better, easier or more popular way to arrive than by river boat along the beautiful river Dart – the 30 minute exclusive cruise departing Dartmouth and operated for the National Trust starts the day in a most beautiful way as we set sail up the majestic river, passing some of the most picturesque scenery Devon has to offer, aboard the aptly named twin decked passenger vessel Christie Belle with licensed bar and restroom facilities.  Sit back and relax as our knowledgeable captain gives you a glimpse into the AC-Boxhistory and sights with his commentary of the river Dart in his Devonian accent – a passenger highlight.  Passing Sir Walter Raleigh’s boathouse on route and viewing the Greenway Estate from the river gives you a splendid perspective of where you are about to visit before arriving by boat directly to Greenway Quay – a private quay on the river.  The waterborne entrance to Greenway all adds to the occasion and the Greenway experience.  Walking in the footsteps of Poirot himself when landing at Greenway Quay the film location of ‘Dead Mans Folly’ you’ll be astounded by the beauty of the area with unrestricted views of Dittisham village and up river towards Totnes.  Greenway Quay is an ideal spot for a cup of tea, ice cream or little treat where you can relax and enjoy the view by the water.  The ferry returns every hour from where you disembarked.


Greenway House is a short 5 minute stroll, just behind Greenway Quay.  For those whom are less mobile the National Trust car meets in conjunction with the ferry landing times to whisk you straight to the door of Greenway House – arrive like a true VIP guest.
