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

This is a lovely place to take children young and old. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The farm is very well run and there is enough here to entertain everyone. The cafe is very nice and clean and the prices are right.

We love this farm, every year we try to visit it when we stay in Skegness. This year we were gutted to find out that the goats and other animals are no longer able to roam free :( This was a highlight of the farm and gave it an added bonus. Without this its just a standard farm like the... More

I took my little boy here for an afternoon visit at the end of the summer holidays. He loved seeing all the animals and feeding the goats. It was a lovely day so he took full advantage of the outdoor and indoor play area. The facilities were very clean and the staff were friendly.

My booking had been made late August and when I arrived to Hardys today it was closed and open only on weekends. Three vehicles passed us while we were in the car park with not one of the driver acknowledging or letting... More

We visited recently while staying at Butlins. It's easy to find, with lots of things to do. It was bigger than we expected and the tractor ride was a welcome addition. The play equipment and soft play were aimed at older children but our 20 month old still enjoyed trying things out. The only downside was the limited selection of... More
