There are several areas to Puzzlewood, the main maze, a very small maze at the front, an enclosed (by MDF boards) maze in the barn area, a children's playground and the cafe/gift/ticket shop. Overall, it's definitely designed for children.
The maze at the front is very small and suitable only for children (big ones will have to crawl) and appeared rather basic. It's in an open, grassed area with the maze constructed out of thatched branches and it's paths are just dirt/soil. Adjacent to this maze is the children's playground area.
The maze contained within the barn area is made from MDF boards and is big enough for anyone, but suited more for children. There is an associated activity for the children to complete to make it more interesting and the barn has a few farm animals to see and touch.
The main maze is quite large and is located to the rear of the property. The design is quite unique and definitely has that "Lord of the Rings - Hobbit" feel about it. The maze has many narrow, windy paths, a few short steep inclines and a lot of wet and muddy areas. The forest allows shade throughout and there are a few scattered bench seats available, but the place does have a few small "bitey" insects. Overall, it's very nice wandering through this maze, with lot's to explore and see, and quite easy to exit once you've had enough. There's also a discovery task to complete, enhancing the maze's experience and also giving incentive to explore it more fully.
As an adult, I saw most of the maze and barn area, then got a bit bored after 2 hours. (Also, my brother's 9yo son was with us, but as he was the only kid, he became bored too.) However, for a group of kids this would be an ideal place to run off, get lost, interact and play etc. and could easily take twice as long as our visit took. I enjoyed the time we spent here, and as it's unique I would recommend others to go visit this attraction too.
