Owner description: 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.

We visited a few years ago and found it was lacking value for money but we visited a couple of weeks ago and it's totally changed with more animals, bigger outdoor play park and a large soft play that adults can join in on. Try the food because although it takes a very long time to get served the food is worth the wait.

We visited last weekend for the Easter activities.
We were disappointed that, after having paid for tickets we also had to pay for parking. This is the first farm that we’ve been to which charges for parking on top of the entrance tickets.

There is a lot on offer here; there was ferret and sheep racing, meerkats, plenty of climbing activities and children’s play grounds catering for all ages.

There are several barns where you can see a good selection of farm animals and their babies (with some rare breeds) feed them etc. and learn about the various species. The animals are kept in immaculate conditions and very well looked after.

There is also a section with reptiles and fish on display. Again very well laid out and presented. The leaf cutter ant display was fascinating and very popular.

There is a restaurant and coffee/ice cream/gift shop with reasonable priced items.

We also went to the farm shop which was impressively set out and had a great selection of meat and grocery items. Not cheap but very good quality.

There is also a old country house and falconry displays which would suit older children.

The place is very spacious and offers something for all ages. There are tables near the entrance where you can have picnics and a grassy area where children can play.

A small point - we thought the Easter bunny activity was too long winded for little ones and would better suit children from ages 5 upwards.

This is a slick and well organised place which is great for families. We thought the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Kids and adults alike can’t fail to enjoy seeing the lambs, calves and piglets. I take my grandchildren regularly, there’s always lots to see and do even if the weather isn’t great!
