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

If your kids love animals then they'll love this place. Lovely and clean, great play areas for both young kids and older ones. We've just been and there were baby goats and lots of piglets which our little boy loved. Entrance price is fair and the only thing that let's this place down is the food prices. Even things in...

Great day out for all the family. Lots to do and see. My little boy loved the big indoor play area after the walk around seeing the animals.

We came here with a 2 1/2 & 20 month old. They loved walking around seeing all the animals and playing on the little toy tractors!! Play areas and picnic areas are great but you need the weather for a picnic as it is all outside. I didn't see anywhere indoors to eat other than the café. The only downside... More

Had a great long morning at the farm with 2 girls of 6 and 11yrs. Plenty to do and see from typical farmyard animals through more not so common the girls had a great time feeding the goats and sheep by hand and both fell in love with wooly the sheep. Tractor rides pony rides and a whole host of... More

We visited the farm at the weekend and was disappointed.It just seems neglected and short of animals.It seems the owners may have lost interest.We have been there at least twice a year in the past but will not be going again

Went here yesterday and whilst the prices were reasonable the farm just had something missing. Me and my wife took our two year old daughter and whilst she was kept occupied for a couple of hours, the farm didn't have as much there as what you would hope for. All the sheds felt a little dark and dingy and not... More

We have visited hardys every year sometimes for 2/3 times a year for 12 years, we only live a few miles away and have always loved it and as my children have grown up with it we have had many happy memories there. Until our recent visit on Saturday with my husband, son 12 and daughters 10 and 6. It... More

Been here many times and always enjoy it, entrance price is fair but food in the cafe is definitely over priced hence the 4 stars
