LOVED this place!! I definitely saw myself stepping into the world of Lord of the Rings, Star Wars 7, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! The woods are so mystical. Just breathtaking! I definitely did not bring the right shoes. Rainy or sunny take shoes that can get covered in mud and have good grip. I also fell a couple of times. Not for wheelchairs or pushchairs. The woods are 5 stars for sure! Outside of the woods it's good. The cafe was alright. Great panini for lunch, not many choices. There is only one place with toilets in the whole park. The animals are very friendly and touchable but very dirty and there are no wash stations. So bring hand gel. The maze is good for the kids but very small. Overall, the walk in the woods was the best part! Walking through Puzzlewood will be something I will never forget! It's brilliant!

The scenery, trees, rocks are simply amazing. I would have rated Puzzlewood higher, but was somewhat disappointed with the rest of the attraction. There were a few goats and ponies, but nothing too exciting with the animals. The indoor maze and displays just looked a little tired.
