Description: Hardys Animal Farm is a great day out in over 7 acres of Lincolnshire...
Hardys Animal Farm is a great day out in over 7 acres of Lincolnshire countryside yet just 10 minutes walk from the beach, with loads of things to do and animals for you to meet feed and make friends with... It's a great day out, whatever the weather! You can see pigs being born in our specially glazed breeding unit, and feed the goats, cattle, and many other animals allowing the children to learn about modern farming and interact with animals in a safe and fun environment. We also have baby Lambs, Goats, Cows and Chicks being born throughout the year. There is plenty of space for the kids to run off energy in our adventure playgrounds, while you can relax in our award winning tearooms with a hot drink or a bite to eat. Then if the weather is good, you can all go on a relaxing Cart Ride around the Farm with Fergie the Tractor. With our giant outdoor play fort, and the new Haystacks Indoor Playbarn, there are loads of things to do come rain or shine. We are located just north of Skegness, on Anchor Lane in Ingoldmells... Just off the A52. The Number 3 Bus stops at the end of the farm road, running every 8-10 minutes from Skegness, Ingoldmells, Butlins & Fantasy Island

I visited here with a group with children's ages ranging from 6months to 12 years old and everyone had a great time. As well as the animals, outdoor adventure play, tractor rides and more, there is also an indoor play barn and café. There is plenty of parking and lots of places to have a picnic or eat your dinner... More

We visited here and initially I thought , well another farm only hugely expensive for a family of 5. Why can't places do an offer for families of 5???? I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by goats running free around the place. Loads of animals and really informative boards as you walk around. Again bit of a kick in... More

A good place to take the family, probably more suited to younger families .Good level access .The animals are allowed to be fed which gives great amusement to all. Large car park and very easy to find

We've been here a couple of times now, there is a fair amount of animals, in quite a large amount of area. The food in the cafe is fairly expensive. The actual farm isn't THAT bad priced, fairly priced for how small it is. As usual in gift shops, the gift shop is expensive.

My children were very much looking forward to visiting however were left disappointed. I found it quite pricey for what you get. We had looked round at the animals in about 30 minutes. However the indoor play area is a good size however it isn't supervised & a lot of boisterous children are allowed to push & shove the younger... More

Took my great grand children for a day out, what an amazing day we had. So much to see and do, the children could get right up close to the animals, some of them were wondering round with us which was lovely. Plenty of in door entertainment as well if it starts to rain. Brilliant restaurant , with reasonable meals.

Slightly overpriced for what it actually was. Fairly good collection of animals to see and feed. Kids loved the baby goat that was running around with the handler. They loved the play areas indoor and out. Drinks and food in the cafe were in short supply with little choice and rather expensive
