Cannon Hall Farm is a large, family run farm attraction. Sitting in the rolling Pennine foothills, it's home to hundreds of animals, waiting to welcome you to a world of animal magic. Home to one of the biggest and best equipped playgrounds in the north of England and the largest tube maze in Europe our adventure playground is one of the biggest and best in the north of England. The farm shop is famous for home produced beef, pork, lamb and a huge variety of sausages. Our on site bakery produces award winning pies and delicious artisan bread every morning. The tearoom serves delicious home cooked food. New for 2015, The Hungry Llama indoor play and restaurant adds a great indoor option with some dramatic slides and innovative play features to a day that's already packed with fun. Winner of Best Tourism Experience at The White Rose Awards in 2011, Cannon Hall Farm was highly commended in the same category in the Visit England Awards 2012. The farm won the New Innovation Award for it's new farmyard in the National Farms for Schools Awards 2015 and has been shortlisted for the Best Large Attraction Award at the White Rose Awards in both 2014 and 2015.

The farm might well be fun, but we didn't make it past the other attractions. The White Bull might sound like a pub, but it's a fantastic eatery serving mostly the farm's own produce. We had the belly-busting and very reasonably-priced farmhouse breakfast. Possibly the best breakfast I've ever paid for. Seriously. And then on to the farm shop. It's... More

Found the £30 a little steep but the experience for my son was fantastic made his first visit to see Santa very magical. Some of the staff outside the Santa experience need to take a happy pill and for the cost of entry theirs not a great deal there unless you know the difference between cattle types. Would totally recommend... More
