My partner and I stayed at Tapnell for a staycation and it was amazing! The glamping pods themselves are beautiful and cosy with everything you need! We were originally booked in for two nights but had enjoyed our stay so much we called up and asked if we could stay another night, the Tapnell team were more than happy to book us in for one more night. If you are looking for a staycation for you and a partner or even a family I would highly recommend this place! We’ll be back soon!

What a wonderful place to stay! The modulog was brilliant- we wanted something unusual and this delivered making our holiday really memorable. Having daily access to the farm/activities was also a big hit with my boys (11&9). We ate at the Cow restaurant twice, the burgers were massive and amazing! We also had pizza delivered from Fuoco pizzas which were delicious. All communication with Tapnell Farm regarding our stay was fantastic and so helpful. We especially loved the ferry discount they offer. Great location too with lovely beaches only 10 min drive away. Would definitely recommend and would love to return.

Hi Katie. It was lovely to have you and your family stay with us and that your Modulog lived up to the unusual stay you had been looking for! It sounds like your boys loved everything the farm has to offer including our farm park attraction. The Cow restaurant is a favourite with our holiday guests and day visitors to the farm with their award winning burgers. Its great that you managed to explore some of our lovely beaches, we are very lucky to be near so many stunning beaches in West Wight. We would love to have you come and stay with us again, if you can return within the year please make use of our 10% returning discount for guests! All the best

What a lovely, lovely place to stay! We were in a Modulog which was comfy, cozy and super clean; it had everything we needed within fantastic surroundings. Loved the hot tub too, such an added bonus to the stay. Another bonus was being so close to the farm park and the fantastic pub, The Cow, serving really great food and drink. We will definitely be back to stay in the future!

Hi Hayley! It certainly sounds like you enjoyed your stay with us, we are lucky that the farm has 360 far reaching views to enjoy especially when you are relaxing in one of our wood burning hot tubs! The Cow is a favourite with our guests, as you say it allows you to have a lovely meal and a drink without having to worry about the car, just a short stroll back to your accommodation. We look forward to seeing you at the farm again soon!

We had a fantastic stay in one of the Safari tents on Tapnell Farm. The beds were super comfy, the wood fired hot tub was amazing, and the tent was beautifully furnished with some beautiful touches. The breakfast hamper was also very good! Lots of local produce.

A really wonderful holiday and a great place to stay - we stayed in the igloo and it was great. Loads of fun for the kids and things for children of all ages. Would thoroughly recommend this as a family holiday, they run a really good site and the staff are super helpful.
