Harts Ground or Harts Grounds is a hamlet in Holland Fen with Brothertoft parish, and the Borough of Boston, Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 9 miles (14 km) north-west from the town of Boston.[1]

Harts Ground was formerly an extra-parochial area, prone to flooding prior to the drainage of Holland Fen in 1767.[2] It was a civil parish, from 1858 to 1935 when it was reduced to enlarge Dogdyke.[3] It was, and remains today, an area of isolated farms.[4]

Harts Grounds Farmhouse dates to the late 18th century, built in rendered brick with a pantile roof, and is a Grade II listed building.[5][6]
