After our relatively "easy" day yesterday, we Nuest'as are ready for a big adventure. Heading south on the A382 to the A381 to Totnes and Sharpham Wine & Cheese. This beautiful thousand year old farm, owned by the Sharpham Trust, consists of 500 acres along the River Dart. The Trust oversees the Sharpham Partnership which is the trading name for the diversified activities run on the family estate — a vineyard, creamery, and dairy farm.
Greenway and its surroundings were frequently used as settings for Christie's novels including Five Little Pigs, Towards Zero, and Dead Man's Folly. A long-time Christie fan, I am especially excited about our visit!
The house is full of various collections that the family amassed, especially during expeditions to the Middle East including Ninevah and Tyre.
The walk back along the footpath was magical as dusk set in . . . a perfect day!
