It’s hard to imagine a sack of potatoes could lead to the North West’s leading aquatic store but that is exactly what happened at Cockfields ……. selling potatoes at the front gate in 1966, to fruit and vegetables in part of the chicken shed and, in 1999 selling a few goldfish. This then led on to selling tropical fish and, in 2004, marine fish and corals.

  • Too expensive for what it offers. £25 for 2 adults, a 6yr & 3yr old + feed. Only enough activities for a brief visit, 30 minutes maximum. A very deflated visit compared to what the website offers. 
  • Lots of different animals to feed and look at, onsite shop is lovely and has lots of different fish. Large play area which my niece loved! Try and go in spring so you can feed and hold the baby animal...  read more »

  • Very disappointed we visited another local farm lancaster hall farm & we thought it would be similar to that but it was very poor. Hardly any animals & we were finished in 45 mins where as lancaster hall farm had a lot more animals & a big walk round area & park. We will not be visiting again. Very over priced for what it was wished we'd of saved the best part of £20 & just had a look at the fish in the shop. We will stick to Lancaster hall farm in future.
  • £19.50 for two adults and one child most areas unattendered dirty and old. No clear labelling on animals not much to see and all done in less than an hour. Very disappointing. Most time spent on ride ons at extra cost. Not worth the money these people need to visit good farms like cannon hall and hesketh to see what they offer for the monies.
  • Amazing staff , brilliant shop , kids loved ever part of the farm
  • Great shop, excellent range of marine fish, corals and dry goods
  • No! Just don't bother.
