We stayed in the Dome accommodation which gives you a great view out to Freshwater from the meadow.

The accommodation is excellent and offers everything you would need. It really is a luxury glamping option. Our kids loved the dome, the hot tub, the bunk beds, so much so that our 6 year old was upset to leave as she found it all so cosy.

The location is great, being so close to the Farm Park with the Cow Restaurant (excellent and worth booking), the farm shop, the Aqua Park (also great fun and worth booking in advance), and the Farm Park (again our kids really enjoyed this).

In addition it is only 30 minutes from Fishbourne if coming over from Portsmouth and you have great and easy access to the coastal and the rest of the island. We would definitely consider going back to Tapnell Farm in the future.

Hi Richard. Thank you for your lovely review. Its great to hear that your daughter enjoyed the Dome so much she did not want to leave, the bunk bed area is indeed very cosy! The farm park is fun for children and adults alike, we hope you managed to take advantage of our guest offer to pay once and visit as many times as you like whilst you stayed with us. The Aqua Park has been a great hit this year with our guests and day visitors alike, we are glad you managed to experience this! We would love to have you and your family to stay with us again, remember your 10% returning discount should you visit us within the next year! Thank you again for taking the time to leave such a lovely review

We had the most wonderful, luxury family experience staying in the Dome Meadow at Tapnell Park Farm. We’re two adults with two children aged 4 and 7 and it couldn’t have been more perfect! The accommodation was outstanding, the views, the staff and the facilities were incredible. All set in a tasteful, sustainable environment. So much to do which is all included on n your one off admission and the Summer Shindig really topped the holiday off! We will definitely be coming back!

Dear Chenelle. What an amazing review! We loved having you and your family to stay with us up at the farm, Dome Meadow is a very special area with amazing views. It sounds like you enjoyed all we have to over at Tapnell Farm including our summer holiday Shindig nights! If you are able to come and stay with us next year we are booking up very fast for the summer break, so maybe book up now and remember you 10% returning discount if used within the year. All the best

We enjoyed two nights as a family of four (plus medium sized dog!) in an eco-pod. We were very cosy, and would book again but probably go for a larger home from home like the safari tent or modulogs. Chloe was really helpful when booking (and re-booking due to covid) and also helped with booking our ferry at a great discount. The site is in a beautiful spot and we enjoyed evening walks exploring the countryside. At The Cow pub we tried the burgers which absolutely lived up to their "best burgers on the Island" tag! Since we were spending days out and about we didn't go into the Tapnell Farm park, but we have been there before so would recommend that with younger children. It's a fab location to explore the IoW and we look forward to visiting again.

Dear Lizzy. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us in one of our Pods, as you say if you were to stay longer than a couple of nights a Modulog, Dome or Safari Tent would suit your family especially if your dog is coming to stay again too! We are glad that you took advantage of our guest trade rate when booking your ferry with us, it is an amazing saving. Tapnell Farm is a lovely starting point for many walks being connected to footpaths that include The Tapnell Trail, its great to hear that you enjoyed your evening walks to take in the great far reaching views all around us. Maybe when you return you can visit the farm park attraction as you missed it this time around, I am sure our wallabies and meerkats would love to meet you all! Kind Regards

An excellent week in a safari tent for our family of 6. They really have thought of a lot, and that starts with the pre-arrival responses when you have questions, to organising ferry tickets, to the message on the day when your tent is ready. The tent itself and the presentation of it by the housekeeping crew is quite something, and what a setting for it! Possibly the best outlook you could ask and plenty of space in-front for the kids to do their stuff and for the adults to make fire in the pit or BBQ – logs and charcoal supplied, so no excuse!

The tent has everything you need and lots of nice touches to respectfully remind you of farm's eco origins and drive for sustainability. The layout is plenty for a family of 6 with more on top and the beds are very comfortable. Heaters and electric blankets keep the chill away should it arrive.

A separate loo and shower provide plenty of hot water, and with towels and bedding provided, you really don't need to bring much other than yourselves and a bottle or two.

On the farm, the Aqua part was a bit hit for the kids and the 'best' one they'd been too. We ate at The Cow a couple of times and it's improved a lot since we were last there and excellent! Worth booking anything you might want to do well in advance to avoid disappointment.

A big thank you to the team who deliver an experience more than simply a night or two on the island.
