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. The farm features one of the biggest and best equipped playgrounds in the north of England and the largest tube maze in Europe. The farm shop is famous for home produced beef, pork, lamb and a huge variety of sausages. The tearoom serves delicious home cooked food. The deli produces award winning pies and delicious bread is baked on site every morning. The farm was winner of Best Tourism Experience at The White rose Awards in 2011 and highly commended in the same category in the Visit England Awards 2012.

As a child I visited Cannon Hall more times than I can count on my fingers, it was my favourite place to go. Therefore, myself and my mum decided we would relive my childhood by returning to my favourite past time. However, we were truly disappointed. As a child I loved animals and the highlight for me was being able... More

I've visited Cannon Hall Farm a few times before and always enjoyed my visit, however the recent changes seem to be for the worse in my opinion. It's now more 'cannon hall play area' than farm. I understand this is a family attraction but adults like myself enjoy visiting places such as this for the opportunity to see, stroke and... More

I travelled to the farm after we heard that it had opened a new play barn well shouldn't have bothered. It was a disaster you can't see you child from seating area and if you have a push chair you have to leave it by the door and if it's busy it's just hectic . Waited 45 mins for food... More

love coming here, I have been coming to cannon hall since I was a child and I have watched the farm turn from a petting area to large working farm for everyone to enjoy. It has expanded with more animals and more areas for the children to play including the new play centre. I also enjoy the new expanded store... More

Love Cannon Hall Farm, bigger and better now with large viewing areas in the barns overlooking rare breeds etc, plenty to see and do to keep young kids occupied both outdoors and indoors. Clearly there is more to come with more buildings popping up! Oh.. And the food is great too!

Spent a lovely day here today with our two children aged 6 and 11. Arrived at 10.45am and the car park was already filling fast so I had expectations of a stressful busy day! Yes it was heaving in the entrance and by the cafe but through the gates and we were pleasantly surprised. We headed straight for the big... More
