- Cannon Hall Farm
One of the area’s most famous animal attractions, Cannon Hall has an Interaction Zone where children can get up close and personal with a variety of furry and not-so-furry animals. In the farmyard visitors can both touch – and, in some cases, feed – the resident llamas, sheep, goats and pigs.
The farm is open every day from 10.30am until 5pm.
A rural therapeutic centre with educational facilities, Ponderosa has a large collection of animals, large and small. The website promises that some of its residents, notably the rabbits and pygmy hedgehogs enjoy being handled.
