“Excellent Glamping!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My kids and I spent 4 wonderful days at Tom's Eco Lodge.
The tent is extremely spacious, very well equipped and there's a lot of attention to details. There are 6 very comfortable beds (+2 additional ones if you need them) with electric blankets (very much needed), a wood burning stove in the kitchen/living space which is wonderful for warming up food and a great shower with plenty of hot water.
We were blessed with 4 days of sunshine so we made the most of the outdoor space. We prepared food in the small bbq and even used their pizza oven (make sure you get it up and running at least an hour before baking your pizzas!). The kids played and ran outside all the time and our dog had the time of his life.
All the tents were occupied when we were there but there's space for everyone and it never felt crowded. My little girl loved looking for freshly laid eggs in the morning (although we only found 4 during our stay) and holding the little lambs in the nearby barn. Farmer Josh and his lovely family will happily explain life on the farm and give you a tour of their milk parlour.
From the tent, we enjoyed beautiful sunsets over the English Channel.
The location is wonderful too, a 5-minute drive to Freshwater with groceries stores (but we also loved making our purchases from the Honesty Larder - great idea) and a 10-minute drive from Yarmouth and not much longer to The Needles in Alum Bay.
Kimmi is very helpful and she will provide you with anything you need or give you advice.
We would love to go back!
