Surfing Cow

There are some big changes to the maze this year, it is TWICE as big and there are two different trails to choose from – Lawrence has been working hard growing the crops and planning the route! You know the drill, head to the scooping parlour to buy your ice creams and get your tickets, then follow the signs to the maze from the top of the garden.

This year we are asking for a small entry fee to help go towards the costs of growing and maintaining the Maize Maze. Its just £1 per person and under 2s go free. Please ask at the shop for info on Family Season Passes.

Dogs are very welcome in the maze, but must be kept on a lead at all times. The crops will be used to feed the cows over the winter, so please pick up any litter. Wear suitable footwear (it is in a field after all!), and ensure that children are supervised at all times.

Don’t forget we have FREE parking for customers, a new undercover seating area, and a huge garden with unrivaled sea views! Hot and cold drinks also being served all day.

Food and Drink
Indulge in our delicious stone baked pizzas and barista steamed coffees served throughout the

Picnics in the fields are welcome.

Pushchairs? The maze is on sloping ground and as a result may be tough going for those with a pushchair. We have had visitors complete our maze with pushchairs during dry conditions, but the maze maybe become unsuitable for pushchairs during times of bad weather! Please contact us prior to your visit.

If you like Maize Mazes, you might also like to go Sunflower picking.
