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

  • Great fun for half hour or so, keeps the mind ticking over. A good activity and clue solving maze, funny how you see the same people 4, 5 and 6 times on the way round. A reasonable price at £4.50...

  • Wonderful and unusual maze which all ages should find appealing, with clues to make finding the dragonfly that more fun and interesting. The owner who was running the kiosk is welcoming & friendly. Challenging, great fun for all and highly recommended!
  • We had so much fun with this maze! We're four friends who did the riddle together and it madenit quire interesting. It was also a proper maze because we got lost (in a funny way). Children will need some help from adults to get the clues and riddle right, but I definitely recommend it for all ages. And it was affordable too!
