Whether grand or small, a garden is always the perfect place to relax and indulge in your imagination…where lasting memories are made, surrounded by fresh air and lush greenery, just as Frances Hodgson Burnett imagined as she penned her famous children’s classic ‘A Secret Garden’ in the early twentieth century.

In these modern times, A Secret Garden, found in the heart of Kent countryside near picturesque Canterbury, has taken all the fun, freshness and magic of the garden for you to experience from the inside, with a brand-new, enchantingly enclosed wooden pod that will spirit you away to greener pastures from the moment you set foot through the door!

You’ll find this cosy pod is well-equipped, with all the contemporary features you need for a true ‘get away from it all’ break.  Stay toasty whatever the weather with a romantic wood burner and underfloor heating, while you relax with a steaming cuppa and enjoy calmingly green views from the pod’s expertly positioned glass roof and sides.

A fridge freezer and gas hob will allow you to prepare light meals and snacks – perhaps washed down with a chilled glass of wine or two – and when you’ve finished your meal, why not grab a soft towelling robe and head outside through the stable door to the romantic wooden hot tub for two, where you’ll be able to enjoy blazing orange sunsets and the first stars appearing in the night sky?  Bring the rest of that bottle of wine and take in the wonders of the sky above as you relax and enjoy the fact that your holiday has truly begun!

Of course, you may prefer al fresco dining…after all, you’re in the garden!  You’ll find a firepit outside, for you to prepare delicious meals that sizzle…or of course for that all-important marshmallow toasting.  The enclosed outdoor garden area is perfectly secluded with a large fence, to allow you all the privacy you need to relax and unwind in a truly tranquil setting.

When it’s time to turn in, you’ll find a cosy double bed tucked away in the heart of the hideaway, so you can wake up to those wondrous skyward garden views without having to leave the comfort and warmth of your downy duvet.  There’s a shower with plenty of lovely hot water to freshen up with, along with a toilet at the far end of the pod.

A Secret Garden is television-free…and with all those invigorating views as far as the eye can see, you’ll soon find you won’t need one!  Why not pack up a hearty picnic and explore the local area during the day?  Kent is renowned as the ‘Garden of England’ – blended perfectly with a sweeping coastline and plenty of historic attractions for you to enjoy, meaning every single day of your holiday can be packed full of something completely different from the last.

What the guests of A Secret Garden say

“We were so privileged to be the
first people to stay in A Secret Garden and we weren’t really sure what to
expect. However we were blown away with how impressive, comfortable and how
much attention to detail has been put into the whole place. It was very private
and we spent a lot of time in the hot tub as we were just amazed at how
beautifully it had been built, the small touches were not forgotten and
prosecco was left in the fridge for us which was a nice way to celebrate my
boyfriend’s birthday. We would 100% recommend this to anyone who wants a nice
peaceful weekend, whilst being able to fall asleep looking up at the stars. We
are already looking to book another stay and this time to try out the Treehouse.”

“What an amazing stay! Attention to detail is
brilliant.  We will definitely recommend to all our friends, thank you.”

“Had a fantastic time – it is a lovely getaway and just what
we needed.  We will be back!”
