Cockfields Farm, Ashton-under-Lyne
(2.4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Visited this farm with family last week of August. Nice big car park. First impression it looked like a farm store, lots of fishes on display, 2 snakes who were asleep, and a few more reptiles which t...  more »

  • Big Thank you to all the fabulous happy and helpful team at cockfields farm! We enjoyed a fantastic day at your 'Build a Bear' day today. Amazing value for money and the staff made it a really lovely day for all our group. So much to see and do. Definitely will be back for more theme days and would 100% highly recommend.
  • Visited 31/8/16 This can't really be described as a farm, £5.95 entry for over 1yr olds? Very expensive! Hardly any animals and in cramped bays. I found it hard to get in with a double buggy as the main entrace wasnt very wide. Hardly any seating to eat our packed lunch and only one sink so was worried about germs......I wouldnt recommend and a second visit is very unlikely.
  • Our first visit to Cockfields Farm 27/08/16. Staff upon entering seemed miserable no welcome at all. It cost us £31 for four adults and one toddler (rip off) plus we then paid extra for small bags of animal food. All areas were unattended no sign of staff and very few animals to see. We had to pay £1 extra for every ride on that was there. Everything look very worn and grubby. I don't ever write reviews but we was very disappointed as we was looking forward to a morning out and we was done in under 1 hour!!! If you are planning a trip here DONT BOTHER!! It's a waste of money.
  • Friendly staff, knowledgeable staff on the marine section, only downfall is the dry goods section in that it's somewhat lacking in diversity.
  • £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.
