Take a fabulous trip down the walled gardens and divine layouts. I would have gave it a 5* rating, but it easy to get lost, not enough signs!

Really tranquil gardens, beautifully maintained , and such a lovely quiet place to sit and reflect amidst this busy world. Think it could be better signed as its a bit of a walk from the main square.

These gardens are a delight and not to be missed if you are visiting Saffron Walden. They are more our less in the centre of town and very well tended for.

Beautiful gardens, including an excellent maze, formal layouts and fountains. It was a very hot day when I visited, so the shady spots and the peace and quiet were very welcome.

Been there several times since it was ‘rediscovered’. So peaceful, yet so close to Saffron Walden centre. Obviously it varies during year due to flowering times, but still a lovely place to visit.

This is a well-maintained garden or should I say gardens within a garden. There is a lovely rose garden, walled garden, dutch garden, summer house lawn, peaceful war memorial garden area. There is a tiny but well thought out visitor centre 'unmanned' but has informative...More

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.
