We visited the cafe for lunch and as I thought last time the food isn't really as nice as it used to be. The children's menu is fine and my daughter enjoyed hers. My chicken baguette was dry and the salad looked like it was directly from a supermarket bag. Previously the same meal came with a proper salad and... More

Visited with my two grand kids (age 5 & 7) and as is always the case, had to drag them out! The farm has been constantly developed over the last few years with a new huge indoor play area currently being built. Price is reasonable, £25 for a two adult and two kids family, and once inside you have lots... More

Cannon Hall is not very far from where we live, so with the inclement weather, we took our Grandkids. I had 2 1/2 price vouchers I downloaded and I used them. The farm is under major reconstruction, so some of it is not accessible to visitors. Cannon Hall have added to the play areas, but some are not suitable for... More

Had a great day on the Sunday before Bank Holiday so it was rather busy. The price seemed a little steep initially, but we spent most of the day here so we couldn't grumble really. We watched the ferret racing and sheep racing which was ok but I thought we may have seen more than one race as been as... More

I came here at the start of the school holidays with a 7 and 4 year old. We had a very lovely day out at cannon hall. We arrived at 10:30 and went straight to see the bunnies, cows and pigs. The children got the chance to stroke the bunnies and guinea pigs, milk the pretend cow and see all... More

I take my children here every school holiday and theirs always something new to see or do. The adventure playgrounds are some of the best I've every seen and the extra activities put on it the school holidays like sheep racing, ferret racing and birds of prey are lots of fun. My kids are juniors now but we've been visiting... More

We visited cannon hall last month, i always went as a child and had fond memories of being able to feed and stroke the animals. This time i brought my 2 year old who also really enjoyed it. The adventure playgrounds are excellent especially for older children, i did find the toddler area was not as engaging and was slightly... More

Went on a family trip used purple vouchers for half price, thank god I did! As I would not be paying £25 to get in. Had some good aspects, sheep racing was enjoyable, didn't go in the tractor ride as que was far to long, the high light for the kids was the park. Yes the park was fantastic but... More

Visited cannon hall farm with 2 small children. The farm is extremely clean and the animals are extremely well looked after which is my main concern where animals and children are involved. Yes it maybe slightly more expensive than other farms but I would rather pay slightly more to know that the facilities are immaculate and clean and the animals... More
