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.To visit Cockfields Farm on your trip to Ashton-under-Lyne, use our Ashton-under-Lyne trip planning tool .

Gone down hill, don't bother, coffee shop scruffy, staff have no time for you. They are now catering for children and the petting farm. Removed all fish keeping. Poor more »

Took 7 year old animal mad child there on Sunday. We were there 3 hours. To get the most out of it you do need to attend the planned talks/handling sessions every half hour. It isn't particularly chea... more »

I've visited this place a number of times over the past few years and find it over priced and over rated. It's just your average 'farm' with average animals. Nothing special. They have special events ... more »
I thought this place was a little expensive compared to other farms but I now think it is worth the money. The farm is not massive but has a good range of animals and activities are on all day. There was a circus show, meet Peppa pig, reptile show, meet a chick, bath a tortoise, groom a rabbit and mini keeper. It kept the kids entertained all day so definitely worth the money. There is a picnic area so you can bring your own food. The shop was a bit overpriced so unfortunately we didn't buy anything.
Lots of pluses. Meeting the exotic animals up close. Deer, pigs, sheep, cows and donkeys to mention a few. Feeding the animals, outdoor space with a bouncy dome and swings. Little tractors and cars. Cute llamas. Indoor Play frame (solid wood not foam filled plastic) Negatives. Couldn't take our picnic in like the last time I visited. Had to purchase food and drink there which was a bit disappointing, especially the cold drinks as they only had 1 sugar free drink for my 1 year old. All the rest were fully sugared. Very surprising for somewhere aimed at children.
£30 for 2 adults and 2 kids felt expensive. But there is plenty to do for them. Feeding the animals. Sand pit. Big trampoline. Pets corner. Climbing frame. Reptiles
Fantastic day out.worth every pound to see the fun my three grandchildren had.lots to do and friendly staff.will be back very soon.top marks for providing this little plot of animal heaven.

Great farm and play areas for the little ones. A little more expensive than others nearby, but a fab way to spend an afternoon.
