We recently visited Cannon Hall Farm. This was a new one for us and chosen because it is a half way meeting point with some friends of ours. The park opens at 10.30am, my friend arrived bang on time and said there was already a queue for tickets. We arrived about 10 minutes later and had to queue for a while just to get parked, so I would recommend arriving early. As we were visiting the farm we needed to pay for parking which was £3 but this is refunded if you spend £10 in the cafe.
As it was such a lovely day there was quite a queue to pay but Little Mr and my friends little girl had lots of fun playing. First once in the park we headed left and visited the sheep, some goats and lamas. Then we headed to a small race track to watch a sheep race. Little Mr was in his element watching the sheep run around the track. He was fascinated that they actually had jockeys too.
After the sheep racing we headed back out of the park to the lovely grassy field which over looks the beautiful Cannon Hall. As it was a glorious day there were lots of people picnicking. It was great to watch all the children charging around without a care in the world.
After our picnic we headed back into the park. There is a relatively new farm section with lots of animals to see. Little Mr loved seeing the piglets and calves. He enjoyed feeding the goats too. B the big new farm buildings there is a short wall which the children had lots of fun climbing and walking along. We managed to sit here and take in the lovely views along with a gossip.
Next we headed to the adventure park. The park is great for all ages and it split into different sections. We found the best one for us and had lots of fun.
Finally we headed for a cup of tea and ice-cream (strange combination I know). The weather was beautiful so we sat and soaked up some rays whilst the children played. A FANTASTIC day was had by all. The children thoroughly enjoyed it. We are already planning to return with Daddy.
Little Miss tired after a very busy day seeing all of the animals on the farm.
