We are Lincolnshire’s only open air museum situated right in the heart of the seaside town of Skegness, but The Village is so much more than just a museum! A hidden gem of the East Coast, Church Farm Village gives a glimpse of agricultural life in days gone by. Experience life in a Victorian farmhouse, explore the thatched ‘mud and stud’ farm labourer’s cottage, marvel at Bob the traction engine and much more! This is a family friendly museum with many things to do and see! The farmhouse at Church Farm Village was built in 1760 (making it the second oldest building in Skegness). It is furnished to the period 1900-1910 and the room settings are styled as if the inhabitants have just stepped out for a while. Outside, the original farm buildings; cow byre, Boothby barn, forge and workshops house many displays and reminders of time gone by. Withern Cottage is a wonderful example of a Lincolnshire “Mud and Stud” thatched cottage. The buildings are all maintained and looked after by volunteers. Havenhouse Barn’s Tearoom is open to all daily and has a variety of fresh locally sourced “light bites”, cakes & refreshments. There is FREE parking, coaches welcome and open access. There are also many family fun events throughout the year. Click on the website link for details.
