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

Me, my partner and two kids love it here, visited 3 times last year, can't wait to visit again this year. We spend a good 4-5 hours here with each visit. This place is clean, staff are lovely and lots to see and do.

We visited on the last day of the season and had not realised that the cafe would not be serving hot food (we booked online). There was a discounted price but no mention of the cafe closure on the website. The farm was very quiet...More

The animals are interestingly arranged, the weather turned cool and they then loved the play barn. Meals were reasonable as were the drinks.

Very nice for younger kids, they can feed the animals, and there are little goats running around, small play areas and a nice large cafe with a play barn.

The farm is flat and from memory i think it would be quite easy access into and around the farm, including into buildings, cafe etc. There are disabled facilities, but a quick phone call would confirm this.

Hi, I'm afraid that due to the number of pregnant animals we have on the farm and the stress that dogs put them under we don't allow dogs to be brought into the farm. We do have free kennel facilities at the entrance with... More
