Glamping Isle of Wight

Glamping The Wight Way is in cosy canvas safari lodges set within gorgeous private surroundings near Freshwater in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the River Yar in The Isle of Wight. four stylish canvas lodges are set within two interlinking private meadows and have ski-lodge inspired interiors with bi-folding doors to the deck from where you can see spectacular sunrises, mists over the river and birds in flight over the fields. The lodges have three bedrooms with Egyptian cotton sheets & towels, all seasons duvets and private outdoor showers. Our wooden furniture, kitchen & fittings is handmade by local craftsmen with 90% of the wood sourced from the Isle of Wight. Although we are off grid, we do have fixed point solar powered lighting in each room and 4 solar powered USB charging points in each lodge.

The site is situated on an arable working farm of approximately 900 acres around the saltwater tidal River Yar estuary. An exciting environmental habitat with extraordinary biodiversity. Just 1 mile walk through fields and woodland will take you to the historic harbour town of Yarmouth. The entry to the port is overlooked by the ancient Yarmouth Castle.

We are centrally located to a good selection of eateries, bars, pubs, cafes, take aways, shops and facilities. All are within easy reach including chemists, a petrol garage, Sainsbury local and Tesco store, all less than 2 miles away in Freshwater or Yarmouth. Freshwater also boasts a fresh butchers, fishmonger and bakery.

Our tents are perfect for family and multi-generational glamping. We do not take large party type groups, our ethos is for calm, quiet off grid relaxation and family time. Our tents are a third larger than most so we have the room and comfort for family needs. We also have 2 loos in each tent!
