Our Guide To Glamping On The Isle Of Wight

The Isle of Wight really does offer every conceivable kind of holiday accommodation for the modern-day tourist, and there is something for absolutely everyone on the Island. If you’re interested in booking self-catering accommodation this year then instead of looking at holiday cottages or caravans, why not try something slightly different and book a glamping site instead? These sites are becoming an incredibly popular choice here on the Isle of Wight.

Simply put, glamping is a brilliant way to enjoy traditional camping as you get to keep all of your home comforts and you still get a little bit of luxury. These days, glamping accommodation comes in all shapes and sizes too, and there are so many unique options to choose from. If you’ve never been glamping on the Isle of Wight before and you’re wondering what different sites there are to choose from, below are some of our favourites.


Tom’s Eco Lodges

When it comes to glamping, arguably there is no better place to stay than in one of Tom’s Eco Lodges in the glorious surroundings of Tapnell Farm. With safari tents, wood cabins, modulogs, eco pods and now even geodesic domes available to hire, you will struggle to decide which unique type of accommodation to book. Glamping at Tapnell Farm offers spectacular views across the rolling hills and down to the coast, and some of the best sunsets on the Island.


Glamping The Wight Way

Glamping The Wight Way offers people visiting the island four spacious well-equipped safari tents set within a pair of interlinking private meadows all with gorgeous river and countryside views. They provide guests with an ‘off-grid’ clamping experience as they use solar power electricity, gas fridges and wood-burning stoves, yet the inside of the safari tents are incredibly luxurious. The outdoor decking and fire pit areas make this glamping site very popular too.


The Garlic Farm

Not only is The Garlic Farm a popular tourist attraction on the Isle of Wight, but it now offers glamping to its visitors too. They have four luxury yurts available which are located in a private field behind The Garlic Farm, and they were all handmade on the Island. The yurts are surprisingly spacious with cosy communal living space and a mezzanine deck for additional sleeping areas. They really are unlike anything else you will have stayed in before.


Sibbecks Farm Glamping

This small family-run glamping site is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and it offers safari tents which are set in a three-acre meadow with a lovely stream running through it. Both of the tents at Sibbecks Farm Glamping are fully equipped and they offer you all of the luxuries you would expect from other traditional accommodation options, but they allow you to immerse yourself in the breathtaking nature around you.


​Kingates Farm Shepherd’s Hut

Kingates Farm is well-known for its beautiful holiday cottages, but they now offer a unique shepherd’s hut for glamping as well. Located in rural Isle of Wight with protected dark sky status, making it perfect for stargazing, this shepherd’s hut is a brilliant hideaway and it also offers uninterrupted valley views during the day. With an outdoor kitchen and BBQ, this glamping site is perfect for anyone who loves the great outdoors.


Woodside Bay Lodge Retreat

This is another resort that is better known for other types of accommodation, but their quirky treehouse makes Woodside Bay Lodge Retreat deserving of a place on this list. This treehouse is nestled in the woodland surroundings and it is beautiful both inside and out, and it has all of your home comforts too. On the decking area of the treehouse there is even a private hot tub for guests to enjoy, making it stand out from all of the other glamping options.


Glamping on the Isle of Wight

It is fair to say that next time you visit the Island, it is worthwhile looking into some of the different unique glamping experiences available and instead of booking a hotel or a holiday park, you should try a glamping site instead. All of the different glamping locations mentioned above are brilliant in their own right and you can guarantee that if you choose to stay at any one of these for your glamping holiday, you will have an unforgettable time.
