Rainy day or not it's always good to get out and explore nature! Where I grew up I was surrounded by fields with sheep, cows and horses, tractors going by and my children get to experience this and grow up with nature (although we now live in a town) we are very much in an area where it's all around BUT some people don't live around that or get to see it… @rushmoor_farm_and_falconry offer alsorts of animals to see and it's lovely to visit as it is big enough to entertain the children and small enough for children not to get overwhelmed. They also have a new little wooden play area replacing old slides and swings. They offer: Experience Days Falconry Experiences Farmer for a Day Birthday Parties School visits. Plus of course a general visit. At this farm they have an array of animals, such as: 🐇 Bunnies, Guinea pigs, creepy crawlies that you can handle. 🐷 Larger animals being Alpacas, Donkeys, Shetland Ponies, Horses, Pigs, Sheep, Bull, Goats. 🦅 Bird of prey such as Falcons , hawks and a variety of Owls! 🐓 Let's not also forget the ducks, variety of chickens, ducklings, peacocks, tortoise, mice and more! SWIPE TO SEE: FIRST photo is Trix happily on a pony! SECOND photo is of us all. THIRD is Peacock. FOURTH spotty Sheep. FIFTH is a cute Hawk Chick. LOCATED: Louth Road,  North Cockerington,  Louth,  Lincolnshire LN11 7DY Gifted ticket #presstrip #rushmoorfarm

4. Natureland Seal Sanctuary

 

Natureland is well known for rescuing and rehabilitating orphaned and injured seals that become stranded on Lincolnshire beaches.Visitors can see the various stages of their rehabilitation and hear about the rescue work at feeding times.

Their team of animal experts are in the business of rescuing orphaned, injured and sick seal pups.

While their name says seals there are also all sorts of animals here (including meerkats!) with an aquarium and pets corner which fluffy rabbits, guinea pigs and sheep call home. You can even feed them with food bought from the gift shop. Then, if you fancy something a little more exotic, head to the tropical butterfly house to feed the koi carp and dazzle at the colourful natives – that is if you dare to cross the crocodile pond!

  1. These all sound like great places to visit. I particularly like the sound of the Natureland Seal Sanctuary – there sounds like there is plenty to see there in addition to the seals. Sundown Adventureland sounds like a great place for a day out too with plenty to do. Thank you for sharing with #CountryKids
