About Mrs Anne Evans
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
Mrs Anne Evans purchased this Cottage in 1987

Can’t praise this property enough. We had a wonderful stay and wished we had booked longer. Cottage is comfortable and well equipped. Children loved the table football. Although Tisbury is a little remote, the likes of Stonehenge, Salisbury, Longleat and the south coast are all easily accessible. Anne very welcoming. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks again for a great stay.
A clean and well appointed property in a quiet part of a nice village
We were very happy with the communications from the owner and the facilities at the property. Tisbury is a good central point for enjoying the local area and the shops in the village were all friendly and have everything you could need.
Very comfortable and cozy converted stable.
We loved staying in this fantastic renovated stable. It was warm and cozy, very comfortable. Lovely hot shower. Anne was a terrific host.
Wonderful long weekend escape
We arrived at Wick Farm on a rainy November evening. Our friends had arrived earlier and, as we stepped through the door, we were welcomed into a lovely, warm, comfortable space. The Stables is a very well equipped property perfectly placed to explore the local area; byways, bridleways and footpaths abound in all directions. Just a short walk across the fields takes you to the village centre - great butchers, lovely deli and plenty of other local shops. We had a great weekend of cycling and exploring. Thank you to Anne and Nick who were so welcoming and helpful.
Beautiful Farmhouse setting
We had a nice stay at the Wick Farm in this space. We enjoyed the open floorplan of the community space. It just felt open and airy. We did not use the living room/TV/AV equipment so I can't speak to that. We enjoyed playing foosball every night. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking dinners. The small washer came in handy. You have to set your clothes on a drying rack to dry (sometimes this took 2 days) so plan accordingly. It's a farmhouse, as advertised, so expect spiders and know that furnishings are not new/plush. The bathroom ceiling is low on the sink side where it may pose an issue for taller folks. We are on the short side so this was not an issue for us. We never figured out how to lock the bathroom door and it took a while to air out the bathroom after showers. (There is no vent and the door doesn't open all the way.) Not big deals in our book. The owners were very pleasant. We felt like we were waking up in a postcard everyday with the sheep, goats, and pasture surrounding us. The Cooperative market is a short 10 minute drive away and had everything we needed for food and toiletries. It is a short drive from Stonehenge but over a 40 minute drive to everything else we did (Jurassic coast, Isle of Wight ferry). The country roads were beautiful, but some were very narrow and not clearly marked, so be prepared. It was very relaxing to go back to this peace-filled setting at the end of a day sightseeing.
The Stables is a converted 18th century stables set in the courtyard of Wick Farm which dates from the 17th Century. In the surrounding field is an Enlish Heritage site thought to be the remains of a medieval village.Tisbury is surrounded by wonderful countryside for walking and cycling and there is a footpath leading to a network of local walks 50yards away. There are 3 golf courses within half an hours drive and horse riding nearby. There are many charming country pubs which serve food within 15 mins or less drive, or a great walk, and a wealth of historic homes and sites to visit. The ruins of Wardour Castle, where the film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, was shot are close by and Stonehenge is a 25mins drive. There is an outdoor pool in Tisbury and a sports centre with a gym and tennis courts.
Further afield most areas of Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire can easily be reached on a day trip and information on all types of outings is kept at the property
Golf: There is a golf course at Tollard Royal, Rushmore Golf Club where non members can pay a green fee
