We visited over Easter when the Maze also had a separate Easter Egg trail going. We loved it there. Big maze, no cheating, but best of all figuring out how to get the frog to reveal the dragonfly! Great time to be had by adults and children (7 and 4) alike!

6 adults, racing around a maze looking for clues to find the elusive dragonfly! Very entertaining hour spent in the maze. I believe it says it takes 20mins to find it, guess we are just rubbish at finding the clues 😂

We stopped here as after several visits to Bourton we had never been. A warm welcome from what must have been the designer. A lovely maze with a built in clever puzzle. We didn't get get all the clues but enjoyed it thoroughly. Found the centre and went back in to solve the puzzle. A good place for a quick... More

My children love a maze. You can get lost (well I did ha!). Staff are friendly and you can take your dog in. Nice ending to the maze. Very small gift shop, not really anything to purchase. No cafe. Toilets next door (council run cost 20p) Big car park next door. Pay to park.

Me and my boyfriend decided to try this maze during a trip on bank holiday. It's definitely not just for children, there were lots of adults doing it and it's actually quite difficult! It was something different to do for a change!

Had a fun time in the maze today. Although we didn't manage to figure out the actual puzzle we still thoroughly enjoyed getting lost in the maze. Cute gift shop at the end.

We visited after a couple of recommendations and had a great little time. The Dragonfly Maze has the feeling of someone's labour of love - not necessarily the most impressive thing you'll ever see or do but enjoyable all the same. It's all over quite quickly, the design isn't spectacular, the clues range from far too easy to quite tricky... More

Finally got a chance to go today but some idiot ruined it for me Prices were brilliant, good for all ages though some of the clues are harder for the children We were having a whale of a time but the small width of the maze meant the inconsiderate idiots who hang around need to be pushed a little The...

Just as fun as when we did it a few years ago - my 8 year old loved finding the clues but needed a little help decifering a few of them. Definately worth completing when quieter in the morning. It was great that we could take our dog in too. Took around 45 mins to complete as had to go... More

The kids enjoyed this but again it took about 10 mins to do and the lady on the ticket entrance was quite mean to my 4 year old for taking 2p out of the water fountain 😒 so I chucked a £1 in to prove a point... Moody old witch. The maze itself was fun

Hello Jade, I'm sorry that the maze only took 10 minutes to do - did you find all 14 clues and solve the puzzle? This usually takes at least 15 minutes. Perhaps as you had been before you managed to do it a bit quicker than normal. I'm glad you still enjoyed it though. I was very upset to read... More
