Our Mazes are located in Gloucestershire on the edge of the Forest of Dean. We are near to the M4, M48, M50 and A48. We are normally open every day from early July to early September. Very close by are Elton Carp Lakes and Pirate Island adventure golf. We have a cabin with seating from which we sell food and drinks, plus we have books to read, games and toilets. Outside is our courtyard, a great place to chill out.

The 3 Maize Mazes are planted each year in April and reach ‘Maze’ height in mid July. Each year the Mazes have a new theme. The mazes are very popular with families and children. We also hold several special events throughout the season culminating with our Late Nate Special where for one night only you can explore the mazes by torchlight.
