Thursday 24th July to Sunday 7th September – Hidcote Manor Farm, Hidcote Bartrim, Glos.
Hidcote Manor Farm is proud to present the opening of this year’s Maize Maze. This years theme is “scary” and the maze is in the shape of a giant dragon over 200 metres tall.
The most fun you will have getting lost in the countryside.

Hidcote Maize MazeThis unique design is cut into a field of fodder maize and interspersed with over 50,000 sunflowers. Bridges and Observation Towers offer a magic sight and scenic views across the Vale of Evesham and to the Malvern Hills beyond.

“Will you get stuck in it? Will you need rescuing? Will you be able to free yourself from it’s grasp?”

This magical maze is set in glorious Cotswold countryside and is ideal for picnics. At over 8 acres in size the Giant Dragon is one of the largest mazes in the country, wth more than 4 miles of paths!! Not only mind stretching but leg stretching too. Don’t worry though, if you do get completely lost help is always at hand with the assistance of the Dragon’s very own “Maze Master”. He always knows how to find the way out as he helped to build it.

As well as the Giant Dragon maze there are trampolines, pedal go-karts, childrens’ play equipment, sand pit, six minute puzzles and a maze quiz. Enough to entertain the whole family.

The Maze is designed by a world leading maze designer. It is the ninth year that Hidcote Manor Farm has done a Maize Maze, each year building on the success of the previous year. This years theme is “Magical Lands”. A Maze with monsters and lands to get lost in – Island of Sweets, Island of Moons, Island of Rainbows and Land of Mountains.

Don’t leave it too late to visit. The whole maze is chopped down in mid-september and made into silage for the farm’s cattle. Very eco-friendly.

Opening times:- Open Daily 10.00 am to 6.00 pm (last entry 5.00 pm)

Entrance Charges:- Adults £5.00, Children £4.00, Family £16.50 (2 adults & 2 children) Dogs on leads only.
