According to figures put together by diys.com #undleypumpkinpatch has been used 2,362 times by Instagram users.

The pumpkin patch has been running for more than two decades, and includes a maize maze, giant inflatables, face painting, straw bale pyramid and seasonal craft stalls. 

The bosses of the site said booking is essential for those wishing to visit this year.

The Southwold Maize Maze was also named the third best for those Instagram shots with 562 hashtags. 

The pumpkin patch, which is more commonly known for its mazes, opens to pickers ahead of Halloween while also offering a children's play area, bouncy pillows and go-karts.
