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.

Good things are the kids play areas and the restaurant. Bad thing mostly is the animals aren't treated very well and you could argue its to be expected in a farm but it can be improved. Most the animals I saw could do with more...More

This place is amazing. So much to do you can stay entertained all day. It's clean and very well maintained with very up to date play areas. You really can't beat it for the price. Great day out.

This place is just brilliant. I am in awe of the professionalism of the staff, the cleanliness of the site, the quality of the food and the sheer value for money. The big attractions could learn a lot from Cannon Hall Farm.
