The hall was Frances Hodgson Burnett's home for nine years at the turn of the century and its overgrown walled garden provided the inspiration for her most famous book, The Secret Garden. When she left, the garden was remodelled by Lutyens, who added a long terrace and steps on the south side of the house. The garden will be open tomorrow (admission pounds 1).
