Calthwaite – Hay Close Farm Maize Maze
Location : Calthwaite / Penrith – Grid Ref : NY 443411
Maize mazes, sown in May over some 30 acres, are the latest Cumbrian craze. Local farms have been transformed into family attractions, and kids can spend their days in a daze trying to find the way to the centre – and back out again.
At Calthwaite there is a large picnic area overlooking the farm pond, an outdoor adventure playground for children, tea room and craft and gift shop. There are facilities at other maize mazes too.
At St Bees, Calthwaite near Penrith, and at Sedgwick near Kendal, families have come to wander around and then look at the animals, play games and have something to eat afterwards.
