General

Red Squirrel Glamping is a glamping site on the Isle of Wight hosting guests in safari tents with beautiful views.

The site is based on a working farm with chickens, which produce our own lovely fresh eggs each day. The farm has its own beach where you can relax in peace or search for fossils. Nearby there are some great pubs and numerous attractions if you can tear yourself away from the view.

The safari tents come equipped with everything you need to camp in style including solar power, a woodburning stove, hot and cold running water, ensuite bathroom with shower and flushing loo. A firepit and gas barbecue are also included.

Terms and conditions

Please read the park terms and conditions below and the Pitchup.com terms and conditions.

Additional terms

You agree to take good care of the safari tents, and to leave them clean and tidy.

Bookings are for holiday purposes only and cannot exceed the maximum occupancy.

Damage to the property, unreasonable noise, disturbance, or misconduct such as rowdiness, drunken behaviour, loud music and smoking in the tents will not be tolerated.

No liability is accepted in respect of loss or damage to you or any member of your party, their baggage, car or content.

The management shall be allowed access to the tents at any reasonable time for essential maintenance. Wherever possible this will be by prior arrangement.

Pets are not allowed on the site

Breakages must be reported immediately to the owner so that immediate correction/disputes can be solved. Any payment for breakages, damage, additional cleaning, must be adequately paid for.

In order to maintain the peaceful countryside atmosphere no loud music is permitted. The site is a quiet area. We therefore insist that noise is kept to a minimum between 11pm and 7.30am.

Logs/wood are provided on site. Please do not bring wood for camp fires or collect any wood from surrounding farmland or woodland. All fires must be within the fire pit provided.

Cars must be parked in the car parking area.

Please be aware that this is a working farm with numerous footpaths running through it. You are requested to stick to the footpaths. Access to other areas needs to be under supervision/agreement with the owners.

If you wish to leave your car at home we will gladly collect you from one of the ferry terminals. Just let us know via the 'special requests' box on the booking form. Alternatively you can hire bikes at both East Cowes and Yarmouth.

Please drive slowly when using the drive as in the dry weather it can get very dusty.
