This 4 acre historic, almost secret, garden on the north side of Saffron Walden has undergone major renovation over the past few years. It is free to enter and is an absolute gem. There is a sunken Dutch garden, scented Victorian rose garden and a hedge maze. The Walled Garden was restored in 2007 and now contains a wealth of Victorian plants and fruit trees trained on the high walls and on free standing wires and also a fragrant garden. There are two greenhouses, one with a Victorian citrus collection; the other with a Victorian orchard collection. Additionally there is a most unusual plant theatre displaying Auriculas and other seasonal displays. There is a shelter and ample seating.
Areas of the Garden can be hired for special events including weddings. Contact www.saffronwalden.gov.uk for details. There is a shelter, visitor centre, toilet and ample seating.
