We had a lovely time today meandering around Canon hall grounds and walked gardens. All very well organised, wide we had visited in the Summer when the gardens must have been alive with colours and fragrance. The fairy land looked interesting to explore as well.

Not living to far from Cannon Hall, it's a place we've visited many times. However until recently, we'd never been in the museum. We took our two grandchildren on a damp, miserable day so we weren't surprised to find just a small number of cars in the car park. On entry, we were greeted by a charming lady who went to a lot of trouble to tell us about the various attractions around the place. The ballroom, dining room and my personal favourite, the Victorian kitchen plus all the collections of paintings and glasware were just intriguing. For me, the fascination of the kitchen was the huge Yorkshire-range fire and oven. A much bigger version of my grandma's from a long time ago. Our two grandchildren seemed interested but not enough to get their hands covered in pastry :) I forgot to mention that entrance to the museum is free, though we were more than happy to make a donation to show our appreciation. If you have historical interests, I'd highly recommend this place.

We went to Cannon Hall Museum this afternoon for a visit to see Santa. We had been a few years ago to see Santa at Cannon Hall Farm and it wasn’t the best experience and we haven’t been back since. We actually won tickets for our three little boys in a competition to see Santa at Cannon Hall Museum and thought we would give it a try. I’m so very glad we did!!!! From start to finish it was the most wonderful experience. We arrived half an hour before our allotted time and was planning on wondering around the museum as we were early. We were greeted at the entrance with a lovely lady who subtly asked if we were here for Santa (very discreetly so our boys didn’t hear). She then said if we wanted to they could try and get us in early if we were happy to wait 5 minutes. Less than 5 minutes later a lovey lady came who introduced herself as ‘Nursery Maid Emily’. She said hello to our boys, explained where we were going and that if the boys were good maybe they would be able to see Santa. We went into a lovely Victorian sitting room where ‘Nanny Julia’ was waiting for us. We sat down next to the fire and the boys chose a book which ‘Nanny Julia’ read to us. We then went in to see Santa. He was having a cheeky snooze and we woke him up!! Santa and ‘Nursery Maid Emily’ were just super with my boys. Calling them by their names and really listening to what they had to say. Emily took some beautiful pictures of us all with Santa using my phone. Santa then gave the boys a little present. After Santa we went back into the sitting room where we spent a good half an hour playing with old victorian wooden games and toys with Emily and Julia. All the time these fantastic ladies kept in character and referred to each other by their Victorian titles. They taught my boys how to play some classic Victorian children’s games and genuinely wanted to play with them and have fun. I never once felt rushed or hurried along. Julia even took more photos of us as a family in the sitting room next to the Victorian fireplace. We all left with a lovely, happy and contented feeling. One of my boys is being assessed for autism and struggles with new people and things that are out of routine. Both of these wonderful ladies were kind and patient with him. You can tell they were lovely because he smiled and spoke to them, he really has to feel comfortable to do this with strangers. Santa of course was brilliant, he knew who our elves were and interacted brilliantly with the boys. But I have to say the stars of the show were ‘Nanny Julia’ and ‘Nursery Maid Emily’. They were lovely and kind and really cared about what they were doing. I wouldn’t rush back to Cannon Hall Farm for Santa, but would come again the the museum Santa in a heartbeat!

All the staff were so nice at this hotel and the room and facilities were lovely. We had a lovely comfy bed and the breakfast was really nicely cooked. We will be coming to stay here again!
