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

Had both my children's birthday parties here. Used to have my older children's here a few years ago. Had two wonderful parties here, not a bad price. Food was good and plenty for all to do. Also you get a free entry voucher for next time. Will be back next year.

Visited this weekend (Saturday 01/10/2016) with my young son and my nephew. We were able to purchase animal feed, and would recommend the £1.50 bucket. As there is plenty of animals to feed and it saves on buying more paper bags later on. We had a great few hours, got there at about 11am, and straight away we had a... More

Fabulous indoor soft play area and excellent out door play area, lots of things to ride on or in, all free of charge. Tractor/trailer ride again free of charge, Apart from entry... More
