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.

We visited on a very hot day. Although we wanted to visit the farm, we ended up parking at the riverside picnic site which was a good 10 minute walk to the farm. It also says on the website that the £3 parking charge is refundable in the tearoom but I think you need to park in the main car... More

We have been here numerous times and always loved it and when some friends were over we decided to take them. It's over hours drive from where we live and this time I was disappointed. Since the building of the new indoor play gym and restaurant and therefore the removal of the animals in that section..it just didn't feel like... More

I can honestly say i had a brilliant day out. It can be expensive in large family but to counter this if you buy a purple voucher book cannon hall farm has discounts in there. The farm itself makes for a good wander about. It is a shame you cant get near the animals anymore but there is still decent... More

Went with my 3 year old and 28 other children in his class. Can honestly say that all the children enjoyed it and the facilities for the children are excellent. We had a fab picnic on a huge grassy field where they could all run about and be safe. The farm is busy but lots to see, my son loved... More

It was £21 which I thought was a bit pricey. The playground areas were fantastic. Clean and safe. Loved looking at the animals. Petted at a rabbit. Loved the... More

Took my 4 year old grandson on a Friday. Parking, as stated, £3 and a walk of 2 mins to the farm. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The animal information was good and the animals, well, looked happy enough. The playground and the kids maze were brilliant and it was hard to persuade him to leave here!. Went for... More

Visited here for the first time in years with my niece and nephew. It's a lovely farm with lots of barns of animals and things to do for the children. Great playground that has hours of fun for the children. Kids especially enjoyed the sheep racing !
