Below are the most frequently asked questions. If you are still not able to find the answer to your question then please call +44 (0)7361 010529 or email email@example.com and we will be happy to help
Do you allow dogs?
Unfortunately we do not allow dogs. The hedges surrounding the glamping meadow are not sufficiently secure to contain dogs, and as we are surrounded by farm land holding cows, sheep, chickens, ducks etc it is not possible for us to take bookings where guests have dogs.
What do I need to bring?
We aim to provide most things you will need for your stay – for example, we provide bedding & towels, kitchen utensils, BBQ, cosy rugs etc. An email will be sent to you a week before your stay with a detailed list of what is provided and what you may wish to bring with you.
How warm are the tents?
Most guests are pleasantly surprised by how warm they feel in our tents. Each has a wood burning stove in the lounge/diner area, and our beds are fitted with electric blankets to keep you toasty at night.
Do you allow 1 night stays?
No, unfortunately not. In peak season (i.e. school holidays) we only allow minimum 3 or 4 night bookings, checking in/out on Monday & Friday. Out of peak season there may be more flexibility so please email firstname.lastname@example.org to check but 2 nights is our minimum in these cases.
Is there WIFI?
No, unfortunately not. But we do have excellent phone network coverage in the area. We do have a portable EE MIFI device that can provide 5G coverage if required.
What utilities are provided?
The tents are connected to mains electricity & mains water. The water is fine to drink.

Each tent has its own kitchen which is equipped with all the cooking utensils, cutlery, glasses, cups you might require, sink, microwave, toaster, cooking hob, and full size fridge. In addition there is a BBQ for outdoor cooking.
Are there laundry washing facilities?
No we do not have any laundry washing facilities at our site. But there are laundrettes in Ventnor, which is only a 10 minute drive from us

How deep is the stream running through the meadow?
In the summer months the stream is only a maximum of 1 foot deep in some places, and the majority of it is no more than a few inches! The flow is very gentle.

Our honesty shop provides wood, charcoal, local jams/chutneys/sauces. We can pre stock your tent with additional items if required e.g. BBQ packs.

Yes, our barns are perfect for holding events. We have had weddings in there (150 guests!), and also birthday parties. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
What times of the year are you open?
Our safari tents are available to book from the beginning of April until the end of October. Our barns & meadow are available for event hire throughout the year.
What ferry should I use to get to your site?
Red Funnel offer a sailing route from Southampton to East Cowes, and Wightlink offer sailing routes from Portsmouth to Fishbourne, and Lymington to Yarmouth. All are about 25-30 minutes travel to us so please book your nearest mainland ferry port
Do you offer ferry travel discounts?
We can offer guests discounted ferry travel with both Wightlink & Red Funnel. We will provide details about how to claim these discounts with your booking confirmation
Can I get a supermarket food delivery to my safari tent?
Yes. Please ensure you address this to 'Sibbecks Farm Glamping' so this doesn't come to our house! There is a local shop (Norris Stores) that has a very extensive range of products and can probably cater for all your needs whilst you stay with us so there may be no need to get a supermarket deliver however. This is only 1.5 miles away.
