About Hardy's Animal Farm

If you find yourself exploring the Lincolnshire coast, Hardy’s Farm near Skegness is a local institution that’s not to be missed. Offering a day of learning and laughter for kids of all ages, there are over seven acres of adventures to explore, from stroking and feeding the resident goats through to bouncing along on a tractor ride.

What is there to see and do at the farm?

Hardy’s Animal Farm offers tons of activities to keep young minds busy, including the likes of:

  • Meet the animals. The farm is home to kune kune pigs, goats, ducklings, bunnies, guinea pigs and birds that children can pet and feed.
  • Haystacks barn. A vast indoor soft play centre complete with cargo nets, giant slides, helter-skelters and rollers. The main zone is suitable for children age four to 14, while there’s a separate soft play fort for children under four.
  • Outdoor adventure playground. Hardy’s Animal Farm boasts three separate outdoor play zones, each featuring watchtowers, climbing nets and slides. One of the areas is designed with the smallest children mind, and features sandpits, a rocky bridge and small slide.
