Glamping the Wight Way

There's glamping and then there is GLAMping. Tucked in one of the Island's most beautiful locations, here you can enjoy the great outdoors (with an added touch of luxe).

Sack off the modern world and get all one with nature with a fab glamping expedition at Glamping The Wight Way.

This family-owned spot is located in Freshwater on the trendy West of the Wight, comes equipped with four super swish Safari Tents (each sleeping between 6-8 people) that come with all the fun of the great outdoors…plus modern luxuries. *phew!*

Each tent has views of the river and Island countryside, two double bedrooms (with a rather lovely king size bed, of course) and a room complete with adult-sized bunk beds (honestly, the fight over the top bunk will be totally worth it!), as well as a fold-out sofa bed in the living area.

They also come equipped with two (flushing!) toilets and a roll-top slipper bath, perfect for gazing out at the countryside in. Or, you could opt for the – completely private – hot outdoor shower for a really ‘outdoorsy’ experience.

They are also the largest safari tents on the Island, meaning it’s absolutely perfect for a big group of friends or family, with just as much indoor space as outdoor space to lark about in.

GlampingWightWayGrab your crew and plonk yourselves on the swinging sofa on the deck space for a bit of a giggle, then take a short 5-minute walk (through a creepy churchyard!) to the local pub – no designated drivers or taxis required. Woohoo!

GlampingWightWaySwingDeckAnd for you sustainability fans, there are some major green credentials at this spot, with solar energy providing enough juice for some lighting and USB phone charging, as well as woodburning stoves and gas-powered fridges. In fact, it’s also won the Gold award in the Visit Isle of Wight Green Star scheme for actively promoting the use of sustainable transport.

For those with littlies, they have stairgates, highchairs and travel cots available, so everybody in the family can relax and enjoy this stunning location. Better grab the marshmallows!
