Agatha Christie’s Holiday Home: Now Open for Business

Travel Blog  •  Eva Holland  •  02.26.09 | 11:48 AM ET

Britain’s National Trust will open the novelist’s beloved Devonshire summer holiday home, Greenway, to the public for the first time this weekend. The property was donated to the trust in 2000 and has undergone a 5.4 million pound restoration, with the aim of re-creating the house as it was when Christie spent her summers there in the 1940s and 50s.

Said Christie’s grandson: “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 ... If they do then our gift of Greenway will be worthwhile.” (Via The Book Bench)
