FAQs

Are you open all year round?

Currently we are open weekends, bank holidays, school holidays and some term time dates from 15th February 2020-1st November 2020. Please see our opening dates time for accurate information as other platforms such as Google opening times are not always up to date and this is out of our control. Always check our website before traveling.

 

What is there to do in low season (when maize mazes are closed)?

Where do we start?! There are farm animals to feed, small animals to handle, ponies to groom. Bouncy castles, soft play and climbing wall, go karts, trampolines and more! Plenty to do whatever the weather.

 

Do you do children’s parties?

Yes we do children’s parties during the low season (excluding bank holiday weekends) which can be tailored to your child and the activities they would like to do. Please contact us to discuss party bookings.

 

How long will it take to complete the maize mazes?
We recommend about 90 to 120 minutes to complete the large maze and 15-25 minutes to complete the mini maze. It depends which way you decide to turn at each corner, and if you want to stay until you have found every quiz board, sometimes this can take longer.

 

Can we feed the animals?

Our farm animals and donkeys love being hand fed! Animal feed is available to purchase on site and we request that they are only fed this and nothing else to keep them healthy. Most of our animals love the attention, especially the goats!

 

Can I bring my dog?
We only allow assistance dogs into the farm park and maize mazes. We do have 3 kennels on site that you may leave your dog in free of charge whilst you are visiting. We recommend you ring in advance to check there is a space free before setting off.

 

Do you serve hot food on site?

Yes we have a café serving hot and cold food, drinks and snacks. Hot food service is 11.30-3pm in low season and 11.30-4pm during high season.

 

Can I bring a large group/school trip

Yes we can cater for large groups and tailor the visit to their ages/educational curriculum if necessary. Please get in touch to plan your visit.

 

Do you take card payments?

Yes we accept card, contactless, cash and cheques as form of payment.

 

How often are your Tractor Rides?

Tractor trailer rides leave from near the Pet Barn at 2pm and 3.30pm during low season and every 15 minutes between 2pm and 4pm during high season when it is busy. Please see the clock near the pet barn for the time of the next ride. Tractor rides are included in your entry fee and take between 10 and 15 minutes.

 

What are the Moonlit Mazes?

We hold 2 evenings a year (this year 26/9/20 & 3/10/20) where we are open until 10pm so you can try to conquer the mazes in the dark! Torches, warm clothes and wellies are a must but it is great fun!

 

Can we bring a picnic?
Yes, there are both indoor and outdoor picnic areas for you to eat your packed lunches in on site. We ask that picnics are not brought into the soft play building during busy times but there are plenty of other undercover areas on site for you to enjoy your picnic.

 

Can my children go round the farm or mazes on their own?
All children 16 and under need to be accompanied by an adult at all times, including visitors to our campsite that have attraction entry passes.

 

Are coaches welcome?
Yes coaches are welcome to park on site. Please contact us for directions as access is limited through Sedgwick village and we will be able to advise you on the most suitable route.

 

Are you open when it’s raining?
During the open season, the Farm Park is always open whatever the weather. In very wet weather however the maize maze occasionally needs to be closed due to paths becoming slippery and unsafe. To avoid disappointment in these circumstances it is best to ring in advance and check the maze itself is open.

 

Are there toilets in the maze?
No. There are toilets on site which we encourage you to use before and after you complete the maze.

 

Is the maze suitable for young children?
Yes, but we do have the mini maize maze which takes a lot less time to complete than the main maize maze, and is suitable for our younger and older visitors. Alternatively you can do the main maze and ask for assistance from staff located in the maze for directions out.

 

What do you do to help the environment?

We recycle all waste on site, as well as reusing many things around the farm. Our small animals are given lots of homemade enrichment using things found on site such as cardboard, shredded paper and wood. We also provide a discount for people who bring their own reusable mug onto site for hot drinks, and sell travel mugs too! We use sausages in our café from our home bred and locally slaughtered pigs, as well as using a local food supplier for other catering goods. We try our best to do our bit for the environment, if you have any ideas on things we could improve on then please let us know!

 

ACCESSIBILITY FAQ’S

 

Is the maze suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs?
People have used both around the maze without experiencing difficulties. However please bear in mind that it is a working maize field and may be more difficult with either of these if weather conditions have been poor. Staff can advise the best route to take, and there are short cuts around the bridges.

 

I am wanting to come to site with someone with Special Educational Needs (Autism, Asperger’s, Learning Difficulties etc), what support can you provide?
