Electric Car Hire Now Available

24th October 2022

Electric car hire has now been introduced at Tapnell Farm as an option for guests to either leave their car at home and travel by public transport to the Island, or to use an electric vehicle to explore the Island, during their stay. This latest eco travel & stay initiative is in keeping with Tapnell's environmental values, and the family’s ethos to create ‘maximum enjoyment with minimum impact on the environment’,

In association with Snows Isle of Wight, Tapnell Farm now has the new two door FIAT 500e (87kW) on-site which has a range of up to 199 miles from just one charge. The four door BMWi3, which can cover 177 miles from just one charge, is also available to hire - plenty of charge for exploring an Island that is just 22.5 miles x 13.5 miles! Electric charging points are installed outside The Cow restaurant for guests’ convenience.

Guests can take public transport to Portsmouth, Southsea, Southampton or Lymington, crossing the Solent as foot passengers via Red Funnel, Wightlink or Hovertravel, and picking up a pre-booked electric car from the terminal on arrival.

Electric car hire costs for the two door FIAT 500e is £40 per day and the slightly bigger, four door BMWi3 is £50 per day (24 hours)

To book our electric car hire, please email [email protected] or call us on 01983 758729

This Autumn/Winter, we have introduced a special Eco Travel & Stay package for guests travelling to the Island via Lymington to Yarmouth.
