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.

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 travelled here in December for the Santa Experience and absolutely loved it! The elves workshop was amazing and my 7 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it! We experienced a tractor ride and also watched a sheep race. Very enjoyable day.

Planned on visiting the indoor play area but didnt realise we had to pay the full entrance fee for it. Didnt enter the farm this time but stayed for something to eat. Place was clean and tidy although we were disappointed with the food. Uninspired fast food was what we got with corn on the cob missing from two fried chicken flatbread dishes. A side salad was also served on a hot plate, why not put it in a separate dish? Will return to the farm but wont be eat here again. Regarding your comment to the previos complaint. You may have won an award for one days food but youre certsinly not consistent.

Great day out, good selection of animals and play areas for the kids. Can easily spend a full day. We went to the Easter event last year which was also really good!!

So much to do and so much to see perfect for families! Plenty of animals to see and you can feed them. Play areas and activities everywhere!

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.
