From a sunflower meadow to maize maze, it is set to be a blooming marvellous summer at Wroxham Barns in its new Field of Fun. 

The family attraction has more than doubled in size with the introduction of the 10-acre Field of Fun, which launched at the start of the summer holidays. 

With purse strings tightening due to the cost of living crisis, Wroxham Barns wanted to create a better value experience.

Ben Marshall, general manager, said: "We recognised that Wroxham Barns did not offer a full day out so we wanted to enhance that so families can spend a whole day here.

"We also know that every penny counts at the moment."

The first new addition is a pig-shaped maize maze which has had little ones and grown-ups squealing for joy.

It is two acres in size and there are clues for families to solve to help the farmer find his lost tools, with a medal at the end.

It took two months of designing and 15 attempts to get the attraction's first maize maze perfect.

The second new feature is a sunflower meadow, with plenty of photo opportunities.

This is kept pristine for pictures with a separate cutting field, which is done by staff, and if you want to take some home it costs £2 for three stems or £3 for six.

Finally, there is a new foam party arena, with the machines turned on at 3pm every day.

Speaking about the foam, Mr Marshall added: "The feedback has been incredible - there is not anyone in the area doing anything like this."
