Cannon Hall Farm is a large, family run farm attraction. Sitting in the rolling Pennine foothills, it's home to hundreds of animals, waiting to welcome you to a world of animal magic. Home to one of the biggest and best equipped playgrounds in the north of England and the largest tube maze in Europe our adventure playground is one of the biggest and best in the north of England. The farm shop is famous for home produced beef, pork, lamb and a huge variety of sausages. Our on site bakery produces award winning pies and delicious artisan bread every morning. The tearoom serves delicious home cooked food. New for 2015, The Hungry Llama indoor play and restaurant adds a great indoor option with some dramatic slides and innovative play features to a day that's already packed with fun. Winner of Best Tourism Experience at The White Rose Awards in 2011, Cannon Hall Farm was highly commended in the same category in the Visit England Awards 2012. The farm won the New Innovation Award for it's new farmyard in the National Farms for Schools Awards 2015 and has been shortlisted for the Best Large Attraction Award at the White Rose Awards in both 2014 and 2015.

We have been today for mother days and what an amazing time we had. I haven't been for a few years and what a change since I last visited. It was very professionally organised, everything was very clean. Food was very good value and very tasty. The soft play area was also very impressive our daughter loved it. Again all... More

Took the children to feed the ducks and play in the playground. £3 to park all day so good value. You can buy duck food in the garden centre across the road for 50p a bag. Walked up to see the house and gardens and bought some nice flowers from the little flower shop which is next to the house.... More

Great family attraction for under 7 year olds (& accompanying adults). Animals are easy to see & feeding them is fun. £7.95 for every person over 2 so a bit pricey for a family of 4. Slides & other outdoor play activities well thought out with imagination. Try the tube/pipe maze - even adults can just fit. Continuous programme of... More

Just getting a bit samey with the ferret racing and sheep racing, but as a toddler young kids farm its great and the food always good. Hungry llamas still needs to have a separate entrance to encourage visits to that only

It is very much a day out with lots to do which can last the whole day. There is much more to see than just the farm itself but it is suitable for all... More
