2 mazes


the main maze

A new field of maize is planted each season resulting in a new design and theme every year. The crop's growth cycle requires planting in early May. Much of the main growing is done in July, which is why the maize maze doesn't open until the start of the main school summer holidays, in late July when the corn will hopefully will be close to its maximum height!


The theme for 2023 was birds of prey and hidden within the main maze were 6 bird focussed information boards to be tracked down. On arrival you receive a pack with stickers & a leaflet card to house them. Your mission is to locate the boards & complete the sticker card. All completed cards are handed in to receive a lollipop prize.


There is an anagram challenge too with a competition to enter for the chance to win £100.

At the ‘centre’ of the main maze, you can view the beautiful Reydon marshes, home to many species of bird and quietly grazing cattle. These picturesque scenes can be witnessed from a raised walkway that takes you above the height of the Maize Maze, and enables you to see right down to the banks of the River Blyth.



Specially designed for the littler ones but a further challenge in its own right - the MINI MAZE offers a fun and exciting extra maze adventure - ‘spot the spots’.  Find the 7 boards - each with a colour of the rainbow & stick the corresponding stickers on to the leaflet provided at admissions.

Old Hall


The two fields adjacent to the maize maze and visible from the bridge, are part of our stewardship scheme to maintain and provide habitat for all wild birds and insects.


Sown with a pollen and nectar seed mix and a wild bird seed mix, they offer a diverse habitat for our local little friends.


Old Hall Café & Walks opened in March 2019. The dog friendly walks start at the corner of the play area and meander down to the River Blyth, taking in the beautiful Henreed Beds.

We are privileged to be working alongside Suffolk Wildlife Trust and Natural England to provide access to some of England's most picturesque wild environments.

Old Hall Café & Walks lies on the southern edge of the play area and has gorgeous views over the wilderness of the Reydon marshes - it is an idyllic spot to enjoy a leisurely meal whilst soaking up the natural scenery.

The new building offers uninterrupted, magnificent marsh views through floor to ceiling glass. The two dog friendly walking trails around this truly tranquil part of Suffolk are perfect for families.
