We took a walk around Sayen House and Gardens after visiting Grounds for Sculpture. The gardens are very nice and there a many little paths you can walk around but the gardens are limited, very small. Overall though a nice place to visit.

I have been a few times here and walked their trails. See the flowers, walk the bridges and see the ponds. Each time has been very pleasant.

Went for a walk in Sayen gardens and was amazed how beautiful it was, each path was well maintained with so many different perennials and annuals! Ponds, water features were just added bonus! Many places to sit for pictures or painting or just to rest!...More

I have lived in the area for years and for the longest time never knew this existed. It's a gem and often a hidden one. Any season this is a lovely place to enjoy!

Sayen Gardens is beautifully maintained with year round gardens and quiet paths. It tends to be a popular destination on Mother's Day and Easter, but otherwise is like wandering around in your own private, beautifully landscaped space.

I would say yes, for most of the gardens, there maybe a few spots that are not ideal. There are paved paths to walk along. Bridges. Going from memory ... its been a couple of years since I have been.
