Cowdray's Maize Maze and Sunflower Picking Patch

Maize Maze and Sunflower Picking Patch

After the success of last summer’s event, the Maize Maze is returning this year with a theme of ‘Farming Through the Ages’. This involves Farmer Barney reflecting on farming practices including how they have developed from the Stone Age as well as him discussing future farming techniques.

Bigger and better than last year, this year’s maze promises a challenge for all ages. With its horse, plough and tractor design, the Maize Maze is a fun summer day out for everyone. It features a stamp trail, viewing platform as well as teas, coffees and light refreshments provided by the Farm Shop Café. There is even a Cowdray Lifestyle pop-up to browse in.

At the start of the trail, young maze-goers are given our Maize Maze stamp sheet to complete as they weave their way through the train, collecting eight hidden stamps along the way, learning about Farming at Cowdray.

Once you’ve completed the Maze visit our flower Picking Patch. Walk amongst the amazing giant sunflowers and glorious blue cornflowers whilst picking your own bunch to buy (£5) and take home to enjoy.

Tickets are £6 per person, and three-year-olds and under, go free. Carers are also free, and do not require a ticket. 

Pre-booking is recommended using the website link, but tickets will also be available on the gate.
