Hall Farm Park can be found in South Kelsey near Market Rasen in north Lincolnshire. It is a farm park that is located out in the countryside. This year we are attempting to visit lots of places we’ve always said we’d visit but never have. This was day 21 of our #80dayschallenge to have at least 80 days out in one year. We not only have this challenge to get us to try new places but to bring you plenty of days out ideas as well. I’d heard a lot of good things about this little farm park so I was looking forward to visiting
Hall Farm Park Review – Things to do
Hall farm park is a small attraction in Lincolnshire but there is more than enough there to fill up a whole day. So much so my friend and I have already said we must return as there were a few things we didn’t fit in, which we’d have liked to.
They have plenty of activities on throughout the day such as goat walking, lamb bottle feeding, tractor rides and more. Our boys were so pleased to see each other they weren’t fussed about the extra activities so next time we’ve decided to just get them to join in. After all, there are not many places you can walk a goat!
Outdoor Animal Padocks
They have a long line of animal paddocks down the left of the park. You can purchase a bag of food to feed the four legged animals from the shop. It was a very cold and windy day when we visited so we didn’t make it all the way down but we saw some sheep and goats and we almost made it down to the Llamas. I think they were Llamas they could well have been Alpacas, I couldn’t tell from a distance.
Outdoor Adventure Play
They have a huge expanse of grass at Hall farm park. Your kids can just run around to their heart’s content or they can have a go at throwing wellies into tyres. Or just banging the wellies against the points sign as our boys did.
There’s a lovely big wooden play fort perfect for imaginative play with slides and more. Also at Hall farm park you will find a large kid friendly assault course.
The crazy golf at Hall farm park is free to use. You just need to pop into the shop to borrow your golf club and ball. It’s farm themed and a nice little 9 hole course perfect for families.
Woodland Walk to Pingle Wood
As it was so cold and blustery we didn’t have time to manage the walk to Pingle Wood. If you take a walk down to their woods make sure you pick up one of their trails from the shop. You will need to look out for wooden boxes and guess the names of the inhabitants. You can also try and solve nature related puzzles.
Keith’s Crazy Karts
They have go karts on a track at the farm park. We hadn’t realised that the seats can be moved so that children of different heights and ages can use the karts. My son isn’t the best at peddling so he still struggled but there were plenty of other kids zooming around the track. Some of them even take more than one passenger.
Under 5’s Play Area
There is a large under 5’s play area next to the indoor soft play barn. I hadn’t actually noticed while we were there that it was for just under 5’s. Most of the children playing in there where older. There is a track that kids can take ride ons around, a couple of play houses and a few other things to play on.
There is a medium sized animal barn at the farm park. Inside we found rabbits, pigs, donkeys and lots of lovely newborn lambs. During lambing season children are allowed to help bottle feed. We missed this but a nice member of staff picked up a lamb for our children to all stroke while we were in there for the second time of the day.
Barney’s Play Barn
There is a really good soft play area at Hall farm park. Not only is there the normal soft play equipment that most farms have but they also had a slop for sledging down in big rubber rings, a bouncy castle and even a sand play area. They also have toilets in this area (the others are next to the cafe) and a small cafe where you can purchase snacks and hot or cold drinks.
Goat Walking & Tractor Rides
For the daily goat walking, you will need to meet in the animal barn. The goats are walked on leads and children can lead their own goat around an enclosed path. This looked so much fun! If you don’t get a turn first don’t worry as everyone who turns up is given the change to walk a goat.
They had a few tractor rides on during our visit. You go on a ride in a trailer down to the larger paddocks to meet and feed the cattle.
Tearoom & Picnic Areas
There are places to have a picnic outside and also in the play barn. If you want to purchase food there I can recommend the tearoom. I had a jacket potato and my son had a sandwich box for kids. They have a good selection of hot and cold food plus some great homemade snacks. But be warned there’s no chips.
