The delightful walled gardens at Groombridge Place were a favourite of the author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who created the Sherlock Holmes character. The writer was a frequent visitor and Groombridge Place was the setting for his Sherlock Holmes story, ‘The Valley of Fear’. The writer much admired the house and gardens and felt that Groombridge Place was ‘the very essence of England’. Copies of the ‘Valley of Fear’ are available to purchase from the shop next to admissions.
