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.

Would recommend this venue for all ages, especially undr 5`s. Plenty to see relating to farm animals, and a huge outdoor play area. Finished off with a meal in the reasonably priced restaurant.

Varied activities from observing the animals, the baby ones at different ages, a great recreation ground, sheep racing (sometimes), shop and cafe. You can also sign out and return if you fancy a walk round the park as well.

Good large scones, jam and clotted cream. A slice of fruit cake, carrot cake, Victoria sponge and a little trifle. Good amount of cakes, had to take some home!... More

Really nice historic place to visit, especially for walks to explore the land it sits on as well. Lovely farm to see the animals would definitely recommend for families. We went when there was a really good food festival on top which was brilliant can't find something like that local!
