Brilliant day out for all ages, love getting lost in the maze and searching for the clues, playing the games after and always have to go on the farm ride to see the dairy cows

Took our grandchildren and their parents. We all had a great time. It's not cheap but a fun place to go. Parking is easy and not expensive at £3 for the day.The maze was as good as usual and the field games with hay bales to climb appealed to all our age groups. Ate at the barbeque- limited choice but... More

Was pestered by grandkids to take them along. Wish I had not succumbed :-) I didn't even think it was a good maze.

Our Maze isn't open yet this season, so I presume you came last year. I am sorry we disappointed you. We give everyone a quiz and a map (which you can choose to use or not), plus staff are always on the bridges to help if required. We do try and cater for a range of levels of difficulty wanted...

It's an annual day trip for my family. A warm welcome and great traditional fun games. Plus the fun, but not easy, maze. Its fun for all the family.

We have visited the Maize Maze at Cawthorne each year for about four years now, and always enjoy ourselves. It seems fairly expensive for what it is, but we usually spend a few hours there, and overall, I think it's just about worth the money. The mazes are at about the right level of difficulty (you get a map in... More

wear good boots & prepare to get lost! A little expensive to walk around a field, but good fun and well presented.

Very overpriced for what it is. Not maintained very well either. The only thing pleasant about the day was the friendly staff.
