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.

  2. Fairly remote and quiet location but very close to lots of interesting places e.g. Longleat, Stourhead, Fleet Air museum. Facilities onsite were excellent particaularly the swimming pool, tennis court and games room/playground. The cottage is thoughtfully equipped with everything you need. Aug 2011.
  3. Great Place but difficult to go through the village due to narrow roads. if you plan to stay at the cottage then it is brilliant with lots for the kids to do. Hosts are very welcoming and friendly. April 2011.
  4. Fantastic swimming pool, which was immaculate in presentation and a joy to use. April 2011.

  8. Lovely location which offered everything for a family as well as a group celebrating milestone birthdays!

  10. The holiday was brilliant would recommend it to all friends and family. Feb 2009.

  12. A lot of care and consideration has gone in to equipping the cottage to a very high standard. The owners were very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. I would highly recommend a Moorleaze Cottage to anyone. The pool was lovely and we had great fun on the tennis court (having borrowed rackets and balls from the owners). Great trips out to Ebbor Gorge, Longleat and Wells (cathedral was beautiful in the late afternoon sun). A refreshing holiday, and only just over two hours from home. How wonderfully different the English counties are. Feb 2008.
