Property Description

" Spacious well-equipped cottages...with an idyllic rural setting amidst a chorus of wildlife "

Conveniently located for Longleat, Bath and the Mendip Hills and Gorges, Moorleaze nestles on the border of Somerset with Dorset and Wiltshire. Enjoying a tranquil setting with stunning views all around, it provides the perfect retreat at any time of year. Built from local stone and boasting every modern convenience, the cottages offer spacious and superbly fitted accommodation, presented to 5 Star standards. The 76-acre grounds include farmland, woodland, orchard and two lakes, whilst the glorious views encompass fields and gently wooded hills. A haven for wildlife, deer and hares abound, often coming within yards of the cottages. Buzzards, kestrels, tawny and barn owls, pheasants, swallows and many other species nest here. The lower lake is stocked with carp, tame enough to feed from guests’ hands - so no fishing! The idyllic village of Witham Friary, complete with an unspoiled pub, is a few minutes’ stroll and found fame as the setting for the TV series Building the Dream.
Benefiting from its countryside setting, Moorleaze also affords easy access all year round and is within a short driving distance of many famous locations. Longleat is close by, as are Wookey Hole and the Yeovilton Aircraft and Haynes Motor Museums. Bath, designated a World Heritage Site, boasts many delights including the Roman Baths. Nearby Frome has even more listed buildings than Bath and hosts a renowned arts and music festival in early July. Salisbury, Wells, Glastonbury, Stonehenge and Avebury are also popular places to visit from Moorleaze. NT properties include the incomparable Stourhead, just minutes away. Walkers are spoilt for choice, from the local countryside to the splendour of the Mendips, including Cheddar Gorge. With its magnificent indoor pool, games room, tennis court, climbing frame and idyllic setting, The Sunday Times described Moorleaze as
"a sure-fire child pleaser", and it’s just as popular with adults, an ideal break at any time of the year. The village pub is within walking distance. Shops 6 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The property was very spacious and well equipped, very comfortable and perfect for families. The swimming pool was a complete joy! We didn’t need to leave the premises for the whole weekend as there was so much to do and see on the grounds. Oct 2012.
  2. We all enjoyed an the holiday with our extended family in comfortable spacious surroundings with exellant facilities, Our 4year old granddaughter did not want to leave the pool and play area’s. April 2012.
  3. An excellent place for a family holiday. Our party ranged in age from 5 months to 60 and we all enjoyed the facilities at Moorleaze. The owners had obviously put a lot of thought and care into the on site facilities. It’s a good location for days out as well with plenty of places of interest within easy reach. April 2012.
  4. We visited this property (1 of several on the farm) in mid January and had the place to ourselves. The kids loved the pool and spent the entire weekend in it. All the adults made use of the games room (our one disappoint that we had to pay to use the pool n football tables). The house itself was clean n spacious with a great kitchen. We had a lovely weekend and are considering returning next winter. Jan 2012.
  5. We went on this holiday as a family group of 9 ranging from a baby up to an elderly granny. We all had a fantastic time. The property itself was spacious and easily accommodated us all and the kitchen was very well equipped. The location and grounds were fabulous and the on site facilities excellent. The swimming pool was large and warm, the games room was well equipped and most items were for free (unlike some places we have stayed in) and as tennis players we loved having a good court on site. Although many of the individual properties are in a terrace and there was full occupancy we were not troubled in any way by noise. The outside tables were very handy and being able to have access to a barbecue so easily was also a great plus. Finally we enjoyed not being constantly bombarded by notices telling us what we were NOT allowed to do. We had a great holiday, we loved this property and would certainly go again. May 2011.
  6. We took this cottage in conjubction with Longleat to accommodate all our party which was spread over three generations. The facilities were excellent and enjoyed by all ages. We look forward to returning. May 2011.
