Easter Break at Cannon Hall Farm, Barnsley. Visit Cannon Hall Farm this Easter break for fun all the family can enjoy. Experience the thrill of a tractor and trailer ride, and witness the phenomenon that is sheep and ferret racing. Between 3 and 12 April Cannon Hall takes a step on the wild side by welcoming SMJ Falconry and its Birds of Prey to the farm. There’s an Easter Trail for the adventurous, who can celebrate with a chocolate treat at the end. For the more hands on there are Easter craft activities. For the more active, take a trip to the new indoor play area which is packed with dramatic drop slides and ball cannons. If you get peckish on your visit to the farm, stop by the stylish 300 seat restaurant The Hungry Llama, which serves great food, and even draught beer.
