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

As a youngster I visited here many times and obviously being little thought it was amazing. The last time I went was probably 10 years ago with my younger cousin. She loved it and I remember thinking wow, they have done a lot with this. It seemed to have expanded and improved immensely. This time, it seemed to have shrunk.... More

I took my grandson who was nearly 5 years of age and he had so much fun riding the tractor (free) feeding the chickens, goats, cows and was really taken back when one of the goats snatched his feed bag he he. Great day out for all the family and not too expensive once the admissions fee has been paid.

Went here yesterday. Forgot to prebook so paid £30 for 3 adults and 2 @ 13 years. The kids went off and did their own thing and we wandered round at what we wanted to look at. It was windy and a bit chilly so we went inside and had a coffee and a slice of the most amazing lemon... More

I visited Hardys Animal Farm with my five year old granddaughter. She loved the tractor ride and enjoyed stroking the animals. There was plenty to keep her entertained for a few hours. Would recommend. We'll worth a visit.

We often visit with our 2 young children. Hardys is a fab day out with lots to do for the children. Well maintained place. The animals seem well cared for and happy. There's a guy who cares for the animals and lets the children hold and stroke them - he's so friendly and caring!

Family visit in early April, arrived shortly after opening time (10am) and first impressions were that it might be a bit small and we might not spend that long there - we ended up staying almost until closing at 4pm. The farm was nicely laid out and our 2.5yr old boy was entertained by the animals, including petting guinea pigs... More

This is the second time we have visited while being on holiday. There's a good range of animals and a nice play area indoors and outdoors. The staff were friendly and the kids loved feeding the goats and highland cows.
