    Good things are the kids play areas and the restaurant. Bad thing mostly is the animals aren't treated very well and you could argue its to be expected in a farm but it can be improved. Most the anima...  more »

    I went with a friend to Cannon Hall to see the free exhibit on Wedding dresses that was on. We wandered into the farm afterwards and spent an enjoyable afternoon looking at all the animals (especially...  more »

  • Well worth the price of a family ticket, especially at weekends when there are events on (but be warned it can get very busy). Plenty for children to do. There have been lots of improvements since the last time we visited with the addition of a wonderful restaurant that has lots of gluten free and vegan options and an indoor soft play area (ages 4 and under zone and separate 6-12 zone). This is in addition to plenty of outdoor play zones, barns, sheep racing arena, dairy and plenty of other animal enclosures. £3 charge for parking which can be claimed back by spending £10 in any of the restaurants. Good farm shop on site.
  • Loved it here, took my 2 small grandchildren. They loved looking at all the farm animals and helped in the feeding of them. The outside play areas are brilliant and if the weather's not too good their indoor soft play superb for a 4 year old and even my 1 year old grandson. Would definitely recommend.
  • Several outdoor playgrounds. An indoor soft play. Usually some kind of themed event going on with stories and actors. Pig and ferret racing. Petting. Great selection of farm animals to feed. Also visit cannon hall park with acres of land to walk through with lots of interesting gardens. Even visit the mansion. Bit expensive to enter the farm though about £50 for family of 5.
  • Good fun in the sun at cannon hall farm. The restaurant was great and service was very quick even though it was very busy. Lots of play areas for the kids and great to see all the baby animals. A little pricey is my only reason it didn't get 5 stars
  • A great day out! A good variety of farm animals to see, informative talks, sheep and ferret racing, indoor and outdoor play, gift shop, well stocked farm shop, and a packed events calendar. They have some good food options and are very family friendly.
