Create an itinerary including The Dragonfly Maze
Mazes, puzzles and Kit Williams.

Three things which had intrigued us for many years.

The Dragonfly Maze brought these interests together and allowed us to share them with everyone else.

THE MAZE -

Planting yew hedges we created a traditional maze with about half a mile of pathways.

THE PUZZLE -

Fourteen clues dotted around the pathways of The Maze. Only when these are found are you able to crack our rebus puzzle and find The Golden Dragonfly hidden in the round house at the centre of The Maze.

KIT WILLIAMS -

Artist and author, Kit wrote and illustrated "Masquerade" published in 1979. Kit had made and buried a Golden Hare somewhere in the UK. The secret location could be discovered within the story and paintings of the book.

We were unsuccessful "Masqueraders". However we loved it so much we asked Kit to help us with our idea so he designed and created the beautiful centre piece for our maze. The central house, the ceramic tiles, the mirrored cabinet and the bronze "Minotoad".

Afterwards take a look around our gift shop "Amaze'N'Things" filled with traditional toys, puzzles and gifts.

Current prices : Adults - £3; Under 12 & Seniors - £2.50; Under 4 - free.

Family Ticket (2Adults + 2Under 12s) - £9



Average time taken 20 - 30 minutes

Opening times may vary due to weather conditions!!!!

  • An unplanned stumbling across this place and we weren't disappointed I won't give anything away so all I will say is its worth every penny and won't break the bank either

  • Unlike normal mazes, this had the twist of a puzzle to do as you try to find the end. This gives instructions on how to complete the puzzle when you reach the beautiful artwork at the end of the maze....  more

  • Simply brilliant. We went and booked tickets when it opened for later in the day as we were advised it's often really busy on weekends. The maze is really worth visiting for all ages, going around the maze was good fun and deciphering the puzzle was great. Highly recommend this attraction.
  • Great maze. Actually had me lost on several occasions and I'm a full grown adult!! Awesome puzzle to solve along the way
