Visited yesterday, great day out. All in all a family of four (a 1yr and 3 year child), looking at £60 for farm entry and food. A little pricey, however the food was lovely and so were the facilities. Love the indoor play area.

Visited many times. The museum and hall are very interesting. Saw a display of costumes from the Downton Abbey series at the Hall which was most interesting. I've also attended a wedding at Cannon Hall . Lovely venue for weddings. The gardens are lovely and you can enjoy extensive views of rolling countryside.

This place has got better and better over the years. Ideal on a nice warn (and dry) day to have a picnic in the grounds, play by the river and chill. Plenty of space for the kids to run around and let off steam while you relax. Lots of additional activities and attractions to occupy everyone and make this a... More

I went on a visit to Cannon Hall, specifically to have a meal with my Mum and 2 relatives. Being her 84th birthday, Sunday 19th March. I ordered Beefburger with saute onions, salad. I didn't want chips and asked if they did potatoes or mash, the response was no, only jackets or roast . I ordered roast potatoes for myself... More

Cannon Hall is a beautiful house. I've lived in Barnsley all my life and as a child, teenager and adult would come here to have picnics, play in the grounds and sometimes fish, it was always just "there" to be taken for granted. It is a truly beautiful place with lovely cafe, restaurant, farm, shops, deli and the grounds and... More

Cannon Hall museum is a lovely place to visit as it is very informative and interesting to learn how it has been passed down from past years. The staff are very helpful and can answer any questions you may have. On a sunny day it is lovely and relaxing to just sit on the benches in front of the museum... More

Museum is very interesting and staff helpful and informative. When you consider that entry is free this is remarkable. The farm shop is stocked full of reasonably priced tempting goods. The smoked bacon is my favourite. Equally the restaurant gives good value and service. Visited the Lamb Festival with my two youngest grandchildren. This was very enjoyable. The play areas... More

Went to visit the venue on spec today as called a few times prior and no one was answering. With no facility to leave a message or responses to email enquiries, I popped in directly to speak to someone re wedding planning..... Oh no love you'll have to come back tomorrow, or give them a call......ironic. Do you have a... More

We visited Cannon Hall years ago and things have changed quite a bit. There is a great cafe/bistro at the garden centre, a short walk to the house which unfortunately was closed the day we went. The farm shop has extended considerably and sells a great range of produce. We walked through the grounds to the Fairyland pond which we... More

It's wonderful that such a place is still free to enter. Well done Barnsley Museum and Heritage service! In one respect this is a large family house with a strong 18th-century character where you can learn about the Spencer-Stanhope family, the local Lords of the Manor and their servants and artistic relatives. On the other hand you can spend time... More
