The Old Tack Room

This single-storey cottage on a working farm in Ibberton makes a perfectly relaxing escape for four. Facilities at the Old Tack Room include one double and one twin bedroom, a luxurious extra large shower in the main washroom, and open plan living and kitchen areas. The kitchen includes an electric oven and hob and fridge/freezer, and the living area has a TV with Freeview, DVD player, radio, and a selection of books and games.

This cottage is pet-friendly, and a cot and highchair are available upon request for families with young children. A second WC is available in the cloakroom, and the cottage is equipped with WiFi. The surrounding countryside is ideal for a relaxing getaway from the stresses of everyday life.

Ibberton and surrounding Blackmore Vale are full of amazing natural beauty and offer plenty of wonderful walking routes. The castles and abbey at Sherbourne, Stourhead House and Gardens, and Dorchester are just some of the attractions within easy reach of the cottage. A short distance further, the resorts at Weymouth and Bournemouth are perfect for some well-deserved time at the coast.




Quick Break in Dorset

The cottage was beautiful and the birds in the garden unbelieveable and fascinating.

The weather was not very kind and there was plenty of mud underfoot but we went to the Haynes Museum and the Fleet Air Arm Museum both of which were worth a trip.

Every fascility that I can think of was in the cottage and a very high standard of furnishing and equipment plus wine and flowers on arrival.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this cottage as a centre to tour Dorset

As we took my 90 year old Dad it was important to have a walk in shower and one level accommodation. The property was very well maintained and perfect for us, the garden was beautiful and the views even better.

The owners were very friendly, we were greeted with flowers and a bottle of wine, which was greatly appreciated. We would like to return at some time in the future.
