A beautiful and peaceful place to spend an hour - even if you don't want to tackle the maze. There are formal and informal areas with plenty of space for a picnic

Beautifully kept gardens in a peaceful setting. Nice place for a picnic with a young family or a romantic stroll with a loved one. One of Saffron Walden ‘s gems. Love it.
