Our Maize Maze is spread over 4 acres and is full of all sorts of twists and turns to keep you entertained!

There will also be a mini game to play. See if you can find all the letters to make a Hallowe'en related word! You will then get the chance to enter one of our competitions.

The entry to the Maize Maze is £2.50 per person (0-3 yr olds / non-walkers go free) and will be open all day from 10am-4pm


We are very excited to announce that we are the first attraction in the UK to have our very own pumpkin cannon! 

So come on down and pay as you go to fire pumpkins at our Hallowe'en target range! (Please note under 13s must be accompanied by an adult, and under 6s will not be allowed to fire the cannon).


We also have our very own nature trail for you to enjoy for free.

So if you are needing to burn off even more energy then come and enjoy our wonderful countryside.
