About the Maze
The Tangled Maze was planted some 20 years ago. This fabulous mature Maze consists of 1000's of climber and twiners to create the 2 meter high walls. The 1.4 kilometres of pathway are planted with narrow borders of colourful perennials. Hundreds of Clematis shower the walls from late September to November and the again in March April.
The extensive collection of both Tree and Herbaceous peonies are planted through out the maze with flowering time being from early October to late November. The Maze is not just a green Hedge Maze; it is far more interesting for both children and adults. The mystery trail keeps everyone guessing. While a restful sitting area can be found in the centre. The two viewing towers give you the most spectacular views for 360 degrees as far as the eye can see, from the Daylesford forests to the mountains of the Pyrenees wine region.
The cosy cafe has hot and cold refreshment as well as affordable family meals. Enjoy a delicious coffee and soak up the fabulous views while you relax. Tangles Function room is fully licensed and seats up to 120 people. It is ideal for conferences, weddings, group bookings and coach meals. We cater for formal sit down meals to casual buffet style.
