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.

We've visited cannon hall a few times and always had a good day out. In the winter the animals are all under cover and there's the indoor play to warm up again and in the summer the outdoor play areas are great with something for all ages. Prices charged are fair for what is a good full day out (with... More

This is one of our fave places to go! My son loves to feed the animals, and then explore on the soft play and play area. We had a great day out as usual x

Our prices are extremely competitive when compared with similar establishments. You get what you pay for and if you choose to shop in the cheapest supermarkets then you should expect the quality of the food, and the conditions it is reared in to bear no relation to what you will find in our farm shop. To choose to give us... More

We enjoyed one of the recent bistro nights and were very impressed. The food was absolutely beautiful and plenty of it. The warm breakfast salad starter and lamb trio were my choice. The staff were plentiful and very efficient. The food was very reasonably priced for the quality. Unfortunately no lime for the gin n tonic.....so nearly a 5. Highly... More

A new lamb had just been born and lots of little piglets. The play areas are superb and the planned day is a great idea too. Lots going... More

Well laid out family destination. A working animal farm designed for lots of visitors. Good indoor and outdoor play areas. Entry price reasonable and the food quality and pricing is very good. We arrived with two grandchildren at 10.30 and left at 4.30 and they didn't want to leave! Plus the bonus of a good farm shop with an excellent... More
