It's in a fantastic location and has a proper country house feel to it which is absolutely charming and exactly what I was looking for. The host (Tom) was extremely accommodating and had everything ready for our arrival. Lots of fun things to do on the farm along with great walks in the countryside and to the beach, with good pubs near by. Cow Co restaurant is great and I would definitely recommend going for anyone that stays there, great food and fun atmosphere. Will def visit again!
I had a the most fantastic weekend at Tapnell Manor & Tom's Eco Lodge. The location is spectacular with Beautiful views over the Solent. It's a great family place, well worth a visit!.
There were 12 of us staying at the house for a long weekend and we all had a fantastic time. We all came from London, either on the train or driving, it was very easy for everyone even on a Friday evening after work!
It's a beautiful old Manor House with lots of big spaces to entertain and relax, cozy bedrooms and lots of fireplaces. Went to the restaurant 'CowCo' for lunch and had a great time, exceptional steaks and buzzy atmosphere.
All in all it was a fantastic weekend, thank you to Mr Tom Turney for organising it for us.
Rented not only the Manor House but also one of the cottages for a birthday.
Chloe made sure everything was perfect for us on arrival. Everything was spotless and both the main house and the cottage have a really good feel to them.
The facilities were also fantastic, wifi, Tv, the hot tub which was ready to go when we got there. The Cow Co restaurant is also a great addition and well worth a meal.
We took part in clay pigeon shooting which was great fun!! Thanks again to all the guys at Tapnell who made this an unforgettable weekend.
We came for our Christmas family celebration, and loved the atmosphere in this wonderful old manor house. The gifts under the Christmas tree were much appreciated! There was plenty of space for all our different activities both inside and out; the children enjoyed the activities on the farm itself, while the braver members relaxed in the hot-tub. What an amazing place for hide and seek and treasure hunts. The kitchen was a 'proper family room' with a lovely Aga as well as conventional oven. There was plenty of space for everyone elsewhere in the comfortable bedrooms, spacious living and dining rooms. So much to do and see on the island (although lots of things seemed to close down for Christmas!) and the farm was great for the children. Sadly we had mixed experiences of the Cow restaurant with some service issues. We would all love to come and stay again
