Tapnell Farm Park


Set in acres of beautiful countryside, surrounded by amazing views of the Isle of Wight, Tapnell Farm Park is one of the Island’s biggest all-weather, fun-filled family attractions.

There’s so much to see and do, with just as much inside as outdoors – it’s perfect for a full day’s entertainment.

Run wild in our Straw Bale Adventure Zone, race round the pedal go-kart track, zoom along the zip-wires and scale the straw bale pyramid.  Tackle the 3-storey soft play zone in our Play Barn, battle the climbing wall, and create a masterpiece on the giant chalkboards, or head outside for a bounce on our amazing Jumping Pillows. 

New for 2019, have a go at our farm themed Crazy Golf and Farm Footy Shoot-out.  

Meet the Animals in our Farmyard Barn and get up close and personal with some of our cutest and smallest residents. Wander round the Wallaby Walkabout with our mob of tame wallabies and admire our mischievous meerkats as they stand guard.  Venture out into The Paddock and enjoy the views in the company of our friendly sheep and their other farmyard chums.

Plus, join our keepers for daily activities where you can get ‘hands-on’ with the animals, including Paddock feeds, Bugs & Beasties, Meerkat Talks,  Wallaby Feeding and more!

If all this fun is making you peckish, then we have great eateries too, including our award-winning café serving delicious and healthy treats, and our Stone Baked Pizza shack.  For special occasions, pop over to The Cow Restaurant and Bar on site for award-winning burgers!

Plus, take part in our monthly fun events and new for 2019 ….. don’t miss our late evening Summer Sunset Shindigs which take place every Thursday during the school holidays (Thursday 25 July – Thursday 29 August).   Stay and Play all day and then enjoy an evening’s entertainment.  Expect circus skills and showmen, live music, delicious pizza, plenty of play and the most wonderful sunset on the Island.

Open every day except Christmas Day and Boxing Day, Tapnell Farm Park is a great value, all-weather, fun attraction for all the family to enjoy!
