A creative and interesting garden with lots of different areas. A fun staircase to view the garden from a different level. The box hedges were in amazing condition. The maze a lot of fun. A lovely asset for Saffron Walden.

Beautiful tranquil gardens on north side of town. Recently restored kitchen garden and small information centre as well as picturesque gardens and a maze to get well and truly lost in. I'm a regular visitor with my kids.

My grandson had great fun taking me around the maze. The gardens are beautifully kept and there are some wonderful cedar trees. Some formal bits but also a big space to run around.

leaving the main road you walk down a narrow lane and suddenly come across this magic garden, so beautifully designed and planted.

Tucked away, these gardens are an absolute delight to spend and hour or so wandering through. There is also a maze to provide fun for all ages to navigate.

Yes, a lot of people walk their dogs in the gardens and in the park next door. ISTR there are some taps for watering the gardens from which you could get water for dogs too.
