The Venue

Cannon Hall Farm won the 2016 NFAN Large Farm Park of the Year Award, and has won many other awards. The old tea rooms have been transformed into The White Bull Restaurant. The Play barn houses the Hungry Lama restaurant, and they have recently opened the new dog friendly Lucky Pup Cafe. There will be a brief opportunity to look around during the day.


The nearest convenient hotels are the Holiday Inn, or the Ibis styles, both about 10 min away just off Jcn 37 of the M1.

How to book
