We rented the bell tents for our bridesmaids and ushers for the night of our wedding. It was the perfect location and the tents themselves were lovely places to stay. Comfy bed and decorated beautifully!

We had a wonderful long weekend at Stockbridge cottage with family. It was perfect for a family of 3 generations and a dog. The house was beautiful and finished to a Hugh standard. Tapnell Farm has everything you could want as a family with teenagers and toddlers. The surrounding area is beautiful. We loved every minute and are already planning our return.

A group of 34 of us spent the weekend at Tom's Eco Lodges to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was fabulous. It absolutely lived up to the high expectations we had. The lodges were warm and dry in the rain (with the help of the wood-fired oven and electric blankets), the hot tubs were much appreciated, and the staff were really helpful and friendly. I can't find a single negative thing to say!

We spent a short 3 nights break at Cottage2 as a family of 4 with two teenage children and had a perfect stay. The cottage is very well located within the premises and offering an easy access to Tarpnell Farm. An easy access to local attractions and local beaches is also a great bonus of the location. Dinner at the Cows restaurant is highly recommend! Very clean and comfortable place, newly refurbished and offering a great space. Very friendly and helpful customer service on site at Tarpnel Farm. The cottage is great value for money-we would love to come back!

Never tried this type of stay before. Absolutely loved it probably because Tapnell farm is amazing. We also ate in the Cow restaurant and were blown away by the quality of the food and the high standard of service we received. Absolutely 1st class and would recommend to anyone and everyone.

Had an absolutely stunning stay at the domes. I can just imagine how much greater the experience would be in the summer. What a view to wake up to and the log burner fire added a great deal of warm and mood lighting. Definitely a well deserved break for myself and the family i brought along

Fabulous all-too-short stay at the dome. Fabulous 360 degree views across the Solent and countryside especially from the hot tub. The dog loved the accommodation too and enjoyed an evening with us at The Cow. Great space between domes and no issues with wood supply for the burner, bbq etc.

We have just stayed three nights in an eco Dome and we all had the best time. For kids it has the novelty factor and proximity to nature that they love about camping. For adults, who like creature comforts, it ticks every box. Warm, cosy, spacious. It’s a great break from the norm. We ordered the breakfast box and bbq box from the farm for easy meals, which was great value and delicious too. Highly recommend!

The stay was unbelievable amd we loved every minute spent within the Modulog. The location was perfect which made it easy to come and go as we pleased. The views were stunning especially during sunset and sunrise, with no obstructions for miles when looking out of our Modulog. Would highly recommend and we will be coming back with friends for sure.

What an amazing space for a get together. We had 19 of our family stay in the Farmhouse and annex - 12 adults and 7 children from 7 different families. There was plenty of space for families to have their own room and bathroom, sit round the dinner table, play in the gardens, lay on a BBQ for all and the cinema room was a huge hit with the kids (well everyone really!). There are beautiful walks from the house, a wide choice of beaches just a short drive away, and Tapnell Farm provides so much entertainment for all. I would highly recommend East Afton as a location to spend time with friend...more

We had an amazing time at our eco pod. It is well appointed, warm and cozy. The pre-ordered baskets are an excellent idea and the s’mores are top rate. Everything is designed to ensure your camping trip is a pleasurable success regardless of weather. Even the fire starters and wood made the campfire foolproof. Thank you for an unforgettable time.

We had a fabulous stay at Tapnell Farm - now our 6th year. The accommodation and farm facilities are excellent as is their animal husbandry. It's great to see something new each year which is done so well and sympathetically with the landscape and nature. For guests staying for a weekend or longer, a small point to raise in that I think it would be nice to have complimentary entry to the Farm Park but otherwise this is a true gem of a place and good value for money.

We honestly don’t know where to start. The venue itself was always our number one “dream” location for our wedding. We never thought it would happen and it did, and it surpassed any and all of our wildest dreams; it was so perfect. The Farmhouse was incredible and beautiful and had absolutely everything we could’ve wanted and more. (the cinema room is absolutely phenomenal) For us though, what made everything so perfect was how amazing, accommodating and incredible Chloe and the team on our wedding day were. Every request, silly or otherwise Chloe was happy to oblige and went above and...more

I truly cannot fault the accommodation at Tapnell! After a mishap with false advertising on a website and being quoted different prices, we were happy when we arrived to find literally EVERYTHING you need and more to make your stay perfect. My only issue is that Tapnell farm is advertised by its staff to be a family place and one of tranquillity, being a group of 8 adults we were told (almost discouraged) that there were strict measures in place to enforce exactly this with a noise curfew from 11:00pm. After almost being put off due to wanting to celebrate a birthday away from the city, it ...more

We had a fantastic stay in the Safari Tent at Tapnell Farm. When we arrived the tent was warm, welcoming, and beautifully furnished in a country/shabby chic style. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was superbly equipped. The log fired hot tub was a real added treat, as was the wood fired stove in the kitchen. The breakfast hamper full of local Isle of Wight produce was worth every penny—highly recommended for the best Full English you'll get! Highly recommended for families, groups of friends, and anyone wanting to escape to the peaceful countryside of the Isle of Wight.

We stayed for the weekend and had a great time. We liked the Modulog, it was clean and in good condition with comfy beds. There were a couple of things could be improved- the outward opening doors inside were quite difficult to negotiate with a young child and I was worried about the long wooden peg which sticks out quite a long way from the WC door at 7 year old eye height. We would have also really liked a second bag of briquettes for the wood burner as it was very cold and we needed to keep it going all evening, we bought more from the shop as the free logs were too big. There was also no r...more

Great location and facilities and the range of things to do at the farm are brilliant. Bell tents are really spacious and comfortable but, because of the material they are made from, also very noisy/squeaky if there’s any breeze, much more so than normal tents and bell tents we’ve stayed in before. And because the tent sides/ground mat aren’t sealed you get more creepy crawlies in than in an ordinary tent too. Kitchen and shower facilities are brilliant. Make life really easy. Be aware that if you visit the farm (which is fantastic, highly recommend) and are staying you can come and go as much...more
