Things to do at Cannon Hall Farm review
Cannon Hall Farm can be found near Barnsley in South Yorkshire. It is very modern in its design and it’s clear there’s been a lot of recent investment to this popular farm park attraction.
The main thing that is obvious about Cannon Hall farm and what sets it apart from other farm parks is that this is a true working farm. They have 1,000s of animals that are born there every year and that means that you are more than likely to see some baby animals during your visit.
Most of their animals live indoors in large partially open barns. There are rows and rows of these large barns and you can walk above the animals in lots of them. You will see many different animals including alpacas, pigs (there are loads of pigs), sheep, cows, goats and more. There are also a few outdoor fields that you can walk past. You can’t hand-feed the animals but you can purchase food to put in chutes to take the food to them.
They also have meerkats, ferret racing, sheep racing and various farming demonstrations. I also spotted a red squirrel walk through enclosure coming soon. There are daily tractor rides, a wonderful reptile house and some huge play areas. The play equipment is very impressive and there’s even a massive area especially for older children.
The Hungry Llama is one of the biggest indoor soft play areas in the region. It has nine slides and is also home to one of the on-site cafes. There is also a fun tube maze which is very much like a rabbit warren.
