Since Tom’s Eco Lodge opened in 2012 Tapnell Farm has gone through some very exciting changes. No longer operating as a dairy farm, new facilities for our guests to enjoy include The Cow Restaurant & Bar, Tapnell Farm Park attraction, the Tapnell Trail, cycle hire and more.
Our guests can enjoy a range of benefits around Tapnell Farm during their stay. Check out individual listings, and welcome packs for details.
