Tisbury Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Spacious two bedroomed light and airy cottage with open plan downstairs
This charming holiday home is set in the Courtyard of Wick Farm down a small lane off a minor road. It is delightfully quiet and secluded and yet within a few minutes of the small town of Tisbury which has shops and a railway station which has regular services to London, Waterloo. All the main rooms have views across the unspoilt Nadder valley. Tisbury is a great centre for walking and for exploring Dorset. The historic cities of Salisbury and Bath as well as Wilton are easily reached for days out and it is just over an hour by car to the stunning Dorset coast.
The original stone arched door and windows are complemented by hardwood windows and maple floors throughout. The cottage is light and airy with an open plan downstairs and open tread stairs to the first floor. The newly fitted kitchen, double glazing and electric heating make this a great location for year round holidays for families or two couples.
The stables look onto the Vale of Wardour which is an area of outstanding natural beauty. There are lawns in front of the building and a wooded bank to the rear and 10 acres of field surrounding the courtyard. Parking is right outside the door and you can walk directly onto the public footpath.
Many years ago Wick Farm was an active dairy farm of some 400 acres. The present owners purchased the property in 1986 and have lovingly restored the farmhouse and surrounding buildings over many years. The oldest part of the farmhouse dates from about 1680 and The Stables are thought to have been built around 1800. Most of the buildings are constructed from the local Chilmark stone and though formerly thatched now have tiled roofs. There is still the old farm well (padlocked grill) and remains of the old bull pen. The stone troughs are now filled with flowers not water! During the summer months there may be sheep grazing the field but they are kept well away from the property by fences and a cattle grid. It is a thoroughly delightful spot,

Guestbook comments from the owner
Had a lovely time at the Wick Farm. Excellent cottage with brand new furniture and fittings. Lots of light and space. The location was superb with great views over the farms. Will definitely recommend to friends and would like to come back again. A five star weekend

Wick Farm is the home of Anne and Nick Evans who live in the farmhouse most of the time. We have spent many years doing up and restoring the property and it is where we raised our 3 sons who now live in London. Every year we do a little more to both the house and garden to improve the place and have a regular redecorating programme to keep both the house and the stables in excellent condition
