Reasonable entry price and friendly weekend staff. Unfortunately the maze was far too difficult and made the initial excitement of fun and challenge into a ridiculous waste of time on a hot day. With 10ft hedges and narrow lanes - what looked like a challenging maze suitable for couples and families turned into chaos as buggies and queuing made the... More

Wasn't sure what to expect, but it was brilliant 45 minutes or so. A genuinely disorientating maze, lots of clues and a an Indiana Jones moment if you manage to solve the puzzle. We loved it.

We love mazes. This is our first summer of exploring mazes and we love this charming olde worlde maze. The lady was charming thoughtful and informative for the children. What fun we had not only solving the maze its self but also the clues en route. It would be so unkind to spoil the magical centre of this maze but... More

This was our second visit to this maze, it's harder than you expect and with the added interest of collecting clues along the way it keeps the children's attention. My daughters and I took about half an hour to find the middle but make sure you pay attention to the clues if you want to complete. You really can't complain... More

An enjoyable visit for all ages, lasting about an hour. You are given a paper to jot down clues as you find your way around the maze, and when you've solved all the clues you can find the dragonfly. Well worth a visit.

Lovely maze and kept us busy for quite a while! Think Children would have a great time as you have to find clues on the way to the center. Worth a visit so would recommend

I love mazes so I was keen to try this one out and I wasn't disappointed. In order to be able to find the dragonfly in the middle of the maze, you have to solve a number of clues along the way. Some of the clues are reasonably easy, but some are more cryptic. Finding the clues adds to the... More

They give you a quiz and only if you solve it you get the amazing visual solution. Five of us were in splits
