Cockfields Farm, Ashton-under-Lyne

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.

  • There is not so much animals as I expected but is full with children's activity. A few sand pits, swings, a slide, little tractors and cars that they could drive on their own, picnic area and many more. We had an amazing day and definitely gonna get back. Recommended!
  • Great family day out. Lots to do with the kids from holding and feeding, to washing a pig! Something different on every day. A smile from all the staff makes it a very relaxed place to be, and safe for the little 1's too. Will definitely be returning
  • It's good for young kids and soppy adults. 3-4 hours probably plenty of time. Not a bargain exactly but plenty fine for what it is.
  • Had a really lovely afternoon here today. My Grandson loved the animals & reptiles . The indoor play-area was a hit too. All the staff are so helpful & polite. We enjoyed a fresh cuppa & cake. Nice place.
  • Friendly, helpful staff. Good facilities. Really enjoyed Halloween fest.
