Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I have been following CHF for 8years , it’s the best open Farm we have ever been to !!! Can not recommend this place highly enough for both adults & kids . Started with breakfast at The White Bull, absolutely beautiful & well worth the money, with produce from farm shop Food is really good. Had to have lunch too !! First class Customer Service from friendly efficient staff.

    Lots to do for kids and adults too. We have done the Shire Horse experience where a small group at a time gets to see behind the scenes and up close with all the animals, I got to groom the shetlands and take them a wee wander You can do the lamb feeding, goat cuddles , reptile house , mammal house & meet the meerkat s too !! Ferret racing with free betting on the results for the kids where someone wins a prize, sheep racing too & farmers will all stop to answer any question . The staff are all amazing and very friendly Fantastic indoor & outdoor play areas with a new fully inclusive one too. Rob & Dave love to stop & chat too. We always go back to the Farm Shop in morning to take the butcher meat back home , what a farm shop, first class produce straight from the farm , incredibly well stocked shop , clean tidy & lovely staff too. The customer service from all at Cannon Hall Farm is first class.

    A beautiful walk around the lakes and parklands. The rhododendrons were absolutely stunning. .. some of the best we have seen. The house was a bit bland but still worth a visit

    How was it the first time I’ve been here? What a place? Our little toddler loved it. So many places to walk and explore. Even though the weather wasn’t on our side we still loved it. The cafe was great to start our morning with breakfast before we began our adventure. We will definitely be back. I’ve lived nearby since I was 9 years old and at 31 have only just visited.

    We discovered by chance the exhibition of the illustrations and life story of local lad Brian Wildsmith who became a world class children’s book illustrator and author. Beautiful joyful work. More of his work is displayed down the road in the Cooper Gallery. Both highly recommended.

    Visited on a wet day. Interesting history of the village. Sign posting of site could be better. Interesting range of shops great sweet shop, craft shop, specialist food shops. Two cafes available both have a range of dishes for all the family. Interesting exhibition on the site history. Also amazing antique centre .

    Been here with my wife 3 times now, and will likely be back for a fourth. The gardens are amazing, and so beautiful! The cafe is a little on the expensive side, but still nice enough. Can't wait to come back.

    Really great place, worth the money I would have gave it a 5 star rating but when I was feeding the goats one bit my finger and I jumped back and fell over a innocent old lady, I apologised and she was fine but my finger was sore

    Much extended from when I remember it . There's a good mix of classic and modern art plus two excellent eateries , a cafe with a limited number of hot dishes for a light lunch , and a more sophisticated restaurant , small so pre-booking advised , in addition .
