The Secret Garden

News and Events, Places to Visit

There is a new version of  Frances Hodgson Burnett’s children’s novel The Secret Garden starring Colin Firth (he also stared in the 1987 film version!) and Julie Walters coming to cinemas in early 2020. Set locally within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, locations include Helmsley Walled Garden (the secret garden), Helmsley Castle and Duncombe Park in Helmsley, and also in the daffodil valley of  Farndale.

If you are coming to North Yorkshire to visit the film locations, why not base yourself at our lovely holiday cottages which are on the edge of the National Park, but also close to the seaside towns of Scarborough and Whitby?
