Attraction

Overview & description

Cannon Hall Farm is a large, family run, farm attraction. Sitting in the rolling Pennine foothills, it’s home to hundreds of animals, waiting to welcome you to a world of animal magic. The farm features one of the biggest and best equipped playgrounds in the north of England and the largest tube maze in Europe.

There are hundreds of lambs, goat kids and piglets born each year so there’s always something new and exciting to see every time you come. Each year we have highland cattle calves, llamas, donkeys, ponies and sometimes even baby wallabies too. There are usually baby rabbits and guinea pigs on show and if you’re lucky hatching chicks too so there’ll be some really tiny baby animals to see.

Watch out for regular special events on our website. We have sheep racing in the school summer holidays, it’s great fun trying to pick out the winner in the parade ring before the race and cheering on your favourite through the final furlong. We have our Halloween pumpkin carving event in the autumn and Lambing live coming up again in the spring.

Widely acknowledged as one of the best farm shops around we offer prime Yorkshire produce alongside the finest food from around the world. You’ll find all manner of gastronomic delights to tantalise your taste buds on shelves groaning with culinary inspiration. Our notoriously good, home produced beef, pork and lamb are featured in our butchery counter alongside more than twenty varieties of sausage. Our animals are raised with care and our produce marketed with old fashioned principles and integrity. We were awarded BEST BEEF BUTCHER in the UK at the EBLEX awards in 2009.

Our Deli offers a world of possibilities for lovers of fine food. It features a host of foodie delights including our famous homemade pork pies and bread made and baked daily on site. We stock a wide range of cooked meats, cheeses, salami’s and olives. You’ll find authentic ingredients originating from such diverse countries as Italy, Mexico and Japan.

Our spacious tearoom seats 240 and has plenty of space outside for al fresco eating or picnics. Our menu offers high quality home cooked food at sensible prices and features delicious sausages and dry cured bacon from the farm shop.

We sell a wide range of farm related toys, gifts and souvenirs in the gift shop so why not take home a lasting reminder of your visit?
We have some exciting plans for the future involving at least £3 million of investment over the next few years so why not “like” us on facebook or follow us on twitter and we’ll keep you up to date with developments.
