The Old Tack Room has been created from a former tack room (unsurprisingly!) which adjoins the owner’s house, and is now a delightful single storey holiday retreat.

Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the grounds of their equestrian enterprise in the peaceful village of Ibberton, this charming holiday cottage is furnished and equipped to an excellent standard, with beautiful views towards Bulbarrow Hill to the rear, which is one of Dorset's highest points. The accommodation includes two bedrooms and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining, and sitting area, and patio doors which open out on to the pretty and private garden. The scenic Ridgeway Trail passes close to the cottage, and a short meander will take you to the local pub which serves great food and real ales.


The owners have provided a lovely environment to have a relaxing holiday. Everything is there that you need. The garden is superb and completely enclosed. The cottage is in a lovely sleepy village. It has excellent access to everywhere in Dorset and wonderful walks on the doorstep. We thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants peace and quiet.

Very clean, tidy and a wonderful place to stay.
Miss Petersen

We had an excellent holiday a real break away and near enough places of interest. The owners were very friendly only too happy to help. We hope to visit again in the future. A big thank you to the owners for our holiday.
Mrs Edwards

A real "get away from it all" location. Had good walks, lovely countryside and easy access to the coast as well. The cottage was very well equipped and the garden secure, there were lots of birds to watch including a green woodpecker.
