Tom’s Eco Lodge at Tapnell Farm is a short drive or scenic ride from the idyllic port of Yarmouth, which had a regular car ferry from Lymington. Other routes include Portsmouth – Fishbourne, and Southampton – East Cowes, both of which are less than 40 minutes from the lodge. There are also passenger services available from Southampton to Cowes, Portsmouth to Ryde, and Southsea to Ryde.
All guests can take advantage of our special rates on Wightlink and Red Funnel ferry routes.
The Safari Tents are set into Tapnell spinney, at the heart of Tapnell Farm, with the Cabins, Pods and Modulogs set at a right-angle facing Tennyson Down. The woodland (spinney) gives the lodges shelter from the prevailing south-west wind, while the whole site has panoramic views of sea and rural landscape. On clear evenings the sunset is spectacular and absence of light pollution means the sky is dense with stars.
Tom’s Eco Lodge is a 5/10 minute drive from many shops and farm shops, as well as cafe’s and pubs.
