Start at the Manor Inn (2 Stoke Gabriel Road, Galmpton, Brixham, TQ5 ONL).  Turn right from the Manor Inn, following the Stoke Gabriel Road towards Totnes. You will pass a village shop on your left. Carry on this path until you reach the left turn to Galmpton Creek. Make sure you take this left turn to Galmpton Creek, and follow the lane to the entrance to Galmpton boatyard.

Follow the signposts along Mill Lane towards Lower Greenway Farm and Greenway (a beautiful National Trust property). Then you need to follow the footpath through Old Mill Farm onto the beach foreshore. Make sure you take some deep breaths and enjoy the coastal views. Continue on the beach foreshore until you reach the lime kiln. Once there, turn left and climb the stile, heading up through fields.

Make sure you pass through Lower Greenway farmyard until you reach Greenway Road. Then cross over the road and go into the lovely Down Copse Woodland. Turn left and walk 50 meters until you see Greenway marking points, directing you to Greenway House. Turn right and follow these markers until you reach the Greenway car park.

Follow the path through the car park to the driveway, and take the driveway right up to the Greenway Visitor Reception. This walk should take about an hour. If you have time, at this point you can take a visit to the lovely Greenway House and Gardens.  This was Agatha Christie’s holiday home.  Dogs are welcome on leads in the garden.
