Tom's Eco Lodge


Glamping The Isle of Wight with Hot Tub

Tom’s Eco Lodge Glamping at Tapnell Farm on The Isle of Wight is a short drive or scenic ride from the idyllic port of Yarmouth. Tom’s Eco Lodge takes Glamping to the next level with 5 beautiful Safari Tents, 2 Wooden Cabins, 2 Modulogs and 2 Pods – each nestled away in the glorious surroundings of Tapnell Farm.

If Glamping is not for you why not stay in one of our Cottages or book Tapnell Manor for a family or group gathering. Stunning sea views, sandy beaches, space to roam and so much to do, creates the perfect place to be. Perfect for an adventurous or relaxing family holiday, group get together, party or even romantic hideaway. No need to venture far – we have our very own Cow Co restaurant on the Farm producing beef and dairy brilliance!

We also have Tapnell Farm Park – one of the biggest indoor attractions on the island, gift shop, cafe, adventure activities, clay pigeon shooting and much more.

The wonderful Team at Tapnell farm are always keen to share their knowledge and passion for the countryside with you. Come rain or shine, you can ask as many questions as you like and get the best inside knowledge and hidden gems that need to be explored!  We have also re-homed a number of battery hens at the farm who are now clucking around happily – fat, fluffy and free! You are welcome to collect eggs each morning, fresh and delicious ex-battery free range! Pay a visit to see them camping in their very own hen houses!

Safari Tents – Sleeping 6 + 2
