Solving the Dragonfly Maze is requesting a little bit of observation spirit and some patience, as getting around can be trickier than expected, but still I don't think it'll take more than 40 minutes for a person to reach the final spot. The worst thing about this attraction is how peope will see the final object at the end and... More

Excellent! Really fun! Difficult to find way around which is the point isn't it! Great clues to follow which, if you got them right, gave opportunity to solve another puzzle right at the end! Good value for money as it kept us entertained for ages!

Stayed in the Cotswolds for a couple of days with my partner. Wanted to find something to do before we headed back and found this maze. It was fun, cheap and something to get you thinking. Parking nearby, and woman at the gate very friendly. All in all a nice little thing to do.

Not expensive and a good fun challenge to find all the clues and work out the puzzle.Gives you a real sense of satisfaction if you manage to work out how to display the dragonfly. Ideal for all ages-don't miss it.

The Dragonfly Maze is situated next to the car park a few minutes walk outside the centre of Bourton. It is not too expensive to enter. You need to find the numbered clues throughout the maze which when put together explain where to find the secret Dragonfly. Great fun for both adults and children. Many of the clues are a... More

Loved this maze!! Proper, high hedges that you can't just see over or sneak through, and enough twists and turns to even confuse an adult with a good sense of direction! Very inexpensive to get into and a fun way to spend part of an hour. Glad we went!

The maze is very close to bird land and also just next to a huge car park - the maze is fun - it won't take all day, but the kids especially will enjoy it

In amongst the chocolate box images of Bourton on the water we found the Dragonfly maze. At less that £10 for myself and 2 daughters we worked as a team finding each symbol and trying to pull them into a coherent sentence. It was great fun going backwards and forwards, round each turn and only when we had the last... More

Popped into this place by chance not knowing what to expect, thinking that it might be ANOTHER maze! But no a great deal of thought went into this maze.The hedges themselves are about 8 feet tall and along the pathway are placed 14 stones each bearing clues.At the entrance you are given a pencil and paper and in your travels...
