In a scenic corner of Kent, there’s a backyard using a secret.

Great Maytham Hall in Rolvenden is where writer Frances Hodgson Burnett was motivated to write her novel, The Secret Garden, that was turned into a Hollywood blockbuster – and can be available to flow this week.

The Secret Garden may be set in Yorkshire, but it was inspired by a Kent garden Picture: Studio Canal

Normally the expansive home with its own acres of scenic gardens, magnificent views and adjacent woodland, as a private house, could just be glimpsed on weekends to get your National Garden Scheme.

Those dates might be to hold this season, but it’s still possible to see from the comfort of your own house, using a movie on the garden’s page on the NGS website here.
