Chances are if you’ve seen Star Wars Episode VII you’ll already know all about Puzzlewood.
Peppered with protruding roots, meandering pathways and dramatic natural landscape, it’s an ideal place to practice those lightsaber skills and hide from the Knights of Ren. Whether you feel the force or not, there is plenty of magic to be found in this atmospheric 14 acre ancient woodland.
Meet animals grazing in their paddocks including goats, donkeys, Shetland ponies, cattle, sheep, hens and ducks. The indoor and outdoor mazes add to the sense of adventure with secret doors, hidden animal pictures and endless twists and turns! The play area is a good place for children to blow off steam and parents can relax. After all, this Jedi training is hard work!

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.
