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.

It may say more about society in general than this particular attraction but Cannon Hall Farm seemed more focused on kids playgrounds than animals. Which incident were dead as it was so cold. With a toddler I think more of an animal focus would've. Better way to spend the profits from the farm. An indoor PLAY AREA is coming in... More

Other than that we had a fantastic time and will... More

I think charging the same price for adults & children is alittle much! Especially when a family is usually more than 3 children these days, it soon adds up!. Overall it's a lovely farm and well looked after and we enjoyed our day.

We're two grandmas who took our 4 grandchildren aged 10, 8, 7 and 4 to Christmas lunch and visit to Santa at Cannon Hall Farm today. It was absolutely brilliant. The staff put so much effort in and really seemed to enjoy it themselves. Even though the weather was rubbish there was plenty to do - making cards and sending... More

We went today as a change to experience the santa experience and it was good value for money and the kids had a very enjoyable time despite the wintry weather. The staff very helpful and cheerful all dressed up for the kids and even the 'big man' himself didn't disappoint. There were additional activities added as part of Christmas theme... More

There are not only animals to see but also a childrens playground. Also of course, there is Cannon Hall itself to visit. Well worth it.

I have 3 boys who love being outdoors. We regularly visit the farm and they will spend hours playing in the play area without even asking to see the animals (which are also great). To get the most from your day out, it is definately better on a dry day as most of the attractions are outdoors but they are... More

I love Cannon hall because there really is something for everyone from young to old. There's the petting barn for the little ones to get used to animals. All the birds of prey for the older children and of course the lovely cafe and farm shop for the adults. From arriving to leaving the staff are always friendly and helpful... More

We took the children to the Christmas breakfast and they loved it. The staff were great, Santa told a mince pie and cream joke (I won't spoil it for you but trust me it's a doozy) and it was great value. If I was to suggest an area for improvement though it would be the tractor ride. They should really... More
