Overview

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.

While we were there, we did not see any motorcycles. Since your mode of transportation does not take up as much space as a car, you MIGHT have a good chance of getting a spot. I suggest calling them directly. Good Luck!

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.
