The 16-acre Maize Maze is a popular North Yorkshire visitor attraction situated on the A19 on the outskirts of the market town of Easingwold.

Brymor’s ice cream parlour at their High Jervaulx Dairy near Leyburn has become a major tourist attraction in the Dales with more than 300,000 visitors every year.

Managing director Paul Hodgson says he is looking forward to the launch of this latest venture in Easingwold.

He said: “Our aim is to ensure Brymor Ice Cream becomes the dominant brand in Yorkshire and the North East and we are excited about the opportunities that taking over the popular Maze will give us.

“Both Brymor and the Maze are award winning and our aim is to build on this success by combining a great day out for the family with locally made ice cream.”

Paul Caygill, who opened the maze as part of his farm diversification scheme, said: ”Combining one of  North Yorkshire’s most popular family attractions with Brymor’s award winning ice cream is wonderful news for all of our loyal visitors who can look forward to an even more enjoyable time at the Maze.”

The maze, now in its 15th year, will open on Monday, July 16 until Sunday, September 2 and will feature its famous confusing maze puzzle and activities including footgolf, go karts, giant inflatable slide, sand pits and picnic area.

There are also pygmy goats, Alpacas, rabbits and guinea pigs.
