Helpful staff, easy to find, extensive on site parking. The Maize Maze has a different theme each year; clear instructions, flags to wave if you get lost...very different family day out. Delicious BBQ food prepared fresh for you, yummy Maisie Moo icecream and drinks. Lots of other activities too such as tractor rides and games. Full for all the family

Glad you liked our sunflowers! It is the first time I have sown them, I also think they have looked fab. The terrain is a bit rough, so yes we recommend old trainer, walking boots or wellies according to weather conditions as it is only a "farmers field". We advise people to look on our facebook page facebook.com/cawthornemaze for weather... More

Awesome spot for all the family, from young kids to teens. Open all summer, they have a website worth checking before you go, often a BBQ there too or take a picnic and eat in the park opposite at one of many picnic benches. You'll have a 2/3 hours of fun here and more stuff too for young children. they... More

I never leave reviews on websites, but i am happy to make an exception this time. took my wife and 13 yr old daughter to the maze on Saturday.And we all had a great afternoon.

There is plenty if parking - they do have a field you can park as well as two good sized pay and display car parks (£3 for 4 hours) We were 3 adults 5 children and were charged £42 plus 50p a pencil. First of all there is a field with Hay Bales dotted around, some bouncy hoppers and pedal... More

Thanks for leaving such an informative review. I hope others find it helpful. I'll just add if you choose to park in our field we charge £3 and you can stay all day. The staff are fantastic as always; the older ones have already done several seasons, as I say to them they are what make a good day great! More

Excellent for an afternoon. Easy to get lost if you dont use the map, or in our even if you do use the map in our case. Clues to find around the maze. Help on hand if you can't find your way out. Kids love it. Also lots of traditional games in the adjacent field.

We visited here yesterday two adults and three kids aged between 10 and 13. The maize didn't seem as big as normal. We actually completed it this year. I do think it's expensive for just a couple of hours entertainment. and maybe other people do too that's why it was soo quiet. lots of wasps. so I wouldn't have liked... More

I am sorry we disappointed you this year, however I am pleased you completed it. .We want people to complete it , which is why there is always staff on the bridge to help. Having moved fields this year, both the Maize Maze and the games field are slightly bigger, which might be why you thought it was quieter -... More

We had a lovely traditional family day out. This was the fifth year in a row that we have visited and it did not disappoint. Our children enjoyed the go karts, throwing challenges, space hoppers and climbing/jumping on bales of hay. We then attempted the maze... took us about an hour as we decided not to use the map and...

Great maze, but paying to park is just not the way to get customers. I know its the councils car park near by but its such a whack in the face before you have even got to the place.

Sarah W, Owner at Maize Maze at Cawthorne, responded to this review

Unfortunately the council have put up the charges in their car park this year. We as farmers aren't keen to use our fields as car parks as we need the grass from them to feed the cows; however parking is becoming an issue on busy days here at Cawthorne so we have opened a field for parking. All parking is... More
