What should I wear?

We are a working farm and care should be taken on uneven surfaces. Please wear suitable footwear such as trainers or outdoor boots in dry conditions, and wellington boots when it’s wet as the fields can be muddy. It is also advisable for children to wear long sleeved and long-legged clothing to protect against scratches and stings. Please dress appropriately for the weather conditions, if it is hot, do remember to pack sun hats and sun cream, if it looks like rain please bring waterproof clothing.

Can we walk anywhere on the crops?

No, for your health and safety please only stick to the areas you have been directed to for the maze.

Can I get a pram, buggy or wheelchair in the Maize Maze?

The condition of the ground is not always ideal. Customers have still attempted the maze, however, please be advised that the conditions change from year to year depending on how the weather affects the ground and how the pathways are marked out. We will update this page accordingly when we receive feedback from customers using prams, buggies, and wheelchairs in summer 2023.

Can I bring my dog?

No, we do not allow dogs in the maze or anywhere on the farm.

Is parking available?

We have plenty of free parking available. Please drive slowly and safely as there will be children about and the ground could be uneven and muddy. Please ensure that you do not leave valuables in your car. Stanhill Farm cannot accept any liability to any customers or other visitors or their children for theft or damage (however caused) to vehicles or their possessions whilst in the car park.

Can I bring a picnic?

We are happy for you to bring a picnic to the farm but we ask that you eat it in the designated picnic area next to Berries & Beans cafe. Please bring blankets to sit on as the picnic tables are for paying customers of the cafe. Picnics are not permitted in the Maize Maze, fields or car park. Please take all your rubbish home with you. 

Do you have a cafe onsite? 

We were pleased to welcome back Berries & Beans cafe for the 2023 summer season! Serving tea, coffee, hot chocolate, cold drinks, slushies, toasties, cakes and ice creams (Salcombe Dairy Scoop). Card and cash payments accepted. Berries & Beans Cafe is now closed for the summer season, reopening on Saturday 7th October for the first of our Pumpkin Patch sessions. 

Can we have a barbeque on the farm?

No, barbeques are not permitted in the maze or anywhere on the farm.

Do you have toilets in the Maize Maze?

There are no toilets within the maze, however, we have one portaloo and one disabled portaloo close to the cafe.

Do you have baby changing facilities?

Yes, there is a baby changing unit available in the disabled portaloo.

Do you keep lost property?

Any lost property that is found will be kept until the end of the season. Please email us with a full description of the lost item and we will get back to you.

Is smoking permitted?

No, smoking and vaping is not permitted in the maze or anywhere on the farm.

Is alcohol permitted?

No, alcohol is not permitted in the maze or anywhere on the farm.

Do you welcome coach parties?

Only for pre-booked school visits and not at weekends or during the school holidays.

Do you do children’s parties?

No, unfortunately at present we don’t have the staff or facilities available.

Why can’t I get an answer on your office phone number?

We are a small family business and during the busy season we are all working on the farm. If your request is urgent, please leave a message on our answerphone and we will endeavour to call you back as soon as possible. Alternatively, please email:, where you will receive a faster response. 

What is there to do in the Maize Maze?

There is a game to play in the maze with game stations to find, each corresponding to clues on the gamecard. We also have a mini maze with a further ten game stations. Fill out your gamecard correctly for the chance to be entered into a prize draw! Good luck!

How long will it take to complete the Maize Maze?

We advise approximately 1.5 hours to complete the maze. Obviously, it depends on your map reading skills, 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. The mini maze will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.

What if we get lost?

On arrival everyone receives a map with their game card. If you get lost just follow the 'quick route' as detailed on the map! 

Can my children go around the Maize Maze on their own?

Children under the age of 18 must be supervised by an adult at all times.

Does the Maize Maze stay open when it’s raining?

In very wet weather the maze may need to be closed. To avoid disappointment in these circumstances it is best to ring in advance or see our website / social media pages to check the maze is open. This is because paths get wet, muddy and slippery when the weather is very wet.

Is the Maize 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 maze and is suitable for our younger and older visitors.

Is the Maize Maze open all year?

No. We’re open for around ten weeks from late July to mid September. Maize is an annual crop which means that it is planted in the spring and is mature by mid-late summer. We plant the field in April, cut the paths into the design in May, ready for it to grow in time for opening in July. In the Autumn the maize is harvested and used as animal feed.

Is maize the same as sweetcorn?

No. It looks very similar to sweetcorn and is from the same family but is much harder than sweetcorn and not as sweet tasting! It is grown specifically for animal food. Please do not pick the maize as it is not suitable for eating and is not digestible for humans.

Please note:

  • Children under the age of 16 must be supervised by an adult at all times.
  • All rubbish must be removed from the farm.
  • We reserve the right to refuse entry and to remove people from the farm.
  • Thieves will be prosecuted.
