Tapnell Farm

Whatever the weather, Tapnell Farm Park and the Island’s only Aqua Park are guaranteed to keep the whole family entertained!

There’s something for everyone and all ages are welcome! Meet their farmyard friends, explore the straw barn, whizz down the zip wire or get bouncy on their trampolines and giant jumping pillows! Kids of all ages (yes, even parents and grandparents!) love the pedal karts, mini golf and football shoot-out area too.

New this summer is their awesome Aqua Park! The Isle of Wight’s bounciest and best attraction will have you splashing, sliding and laughing all the way round the 20 obstacles made up of giant free-fall slides and fun (but challenging!) elements too.

When you’re ready to relax, there’s plenty of mouth-watering treats, snacks and drinks to choose from in their café or head over to The Cow Restaurant & Bar for the best burgers on the Island!

Route: Just off of Broad Lane and is on our Coastal Explorer and Tennyson Tester routes.

Farringford Gardens

The main attraction is the walled kitchen garden, which Tennyson loved to walk and sit in with his family and guests.  All the Tennysons were keen gardeners, constantly planting shrubs, raking up leaves, gravelling paths and laying hedges; according to acquaintances, Tennyson had such a love of the natural world that he couldn’t even bear for flowers to be picked on his grounds! 

Visitors can enjoy a walk round the recreated historic parkland. You may also be lucky enough to catch sight of the red squirrels that have made Farringford their home.
