We journey to the secret Garden of England – Kent—castles, awe-inspiring open spaces, hidden gems, cottages, and churches. We visit the church where Harley held his second curacy, the cottage and public house in the village Harley and his wife, Josephine, used.


Our overnight accommodation is a charming farmhouse in the village's centre, with dinner at the local public house and former village shop and bakery frequented by Harley and Josephine.
