Tom's Eco Lodge is five luxurious Safari style tents, each nestled way in the glorious surroundings of Tapnell Farm on the Isle of Wight.

You can rent each lodge individually (sleeping up to 6 +2) or why not book all five if there is a large group of you (sleeping up to 40) ?

The perfect location for an adventurous or relaxing family holiday, group get together, party or romantic hideaway. The Island is easily accessible from England and boasts the most sun in the uk!

This historic site has panoramic sea views north and south. The farm was also the setting for the legendary and original Isle of Wight Festival 1970, think Jimi, The Doors, Joni, The Who...

So, the unique eco lodges, Tapnell farm and the Isle of Wight create a new holiday experience with that extra special feel.
