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. Come and stay here if you want somewhere in beautiful, peaceful countryside with easy access to a range of tourist, leisure, cultural, and natural attractions. And a very unspoilt pub - no muzak, no TV, no lagery glitz, just the way they used to be: with bar billards, darts, a slightly sticky floor and with a garden to entertain children. The pool makes this place perfect for anyone with young children as it’s 4ft (about 1.2m) deep right across so there’s no worries about "the deep end" or what to do in a British summer on rainy days. There’s also a modern electric sauna by the pool and the whole complex is very well appointed. You don’t really need to leave the site for a walk in the countryside as there’s a pretty extensive estate to wander around as well. The cottage was spacious, too, so plenty of room for kids to run around. We did Glastonbury and the Tor (superb views across the levels), Wells, Bath (Roman Baths just outstanding), Ebbor Gorge (far superior on so many levels to Wookey Hole), Frome (worth a going beyond Sainsbury’s for its great local shopping, in particular the coffee shop (La Strada) and the bakery, both by the rill) and the local pub (twice). April 2012.
  2. Beautiful cottage, an ideal location for children. Very clean pool, games room a little dated, but as an added extra it’s fine. Very little information in the welcome book about practicalities (where to put the bins, recycling, local shops, etc.) so make sure you ask the owner all these questions on arrival, or follow your nose! Can be noisy as the number of properties on site make it ideal for large family groups having parties (there was a 60th there when we were), which is fine, but be prepared. March 2012.
  3. We loved our stay at Moorleaze. The pool and games room really make this trip special when you have small children. We would also recommend the local pub. Dec 2011.
  4. Spacious, clean, modern, homely. Nov 2010.

  8. It was very clean, very well equipped - absolutely perfect for our holiday. April 2010.
  9. The photographs did not do the property justice, as they failed to show how spacious the cottage was and how nicely it was decorated. We had a fabulous weekend, the facilities and grounds were lovely and we were extremely impressed with everything! We will definitely return. There is lots to do in the area too. March 2010.
  10. Perfect size and beautiful location for the group. A nice touch by the owner to leave a bottle of welcoming wine and biscuits. We will come back. Nov 2009.
  11. Clean accommodation, good kitchen with all the utensils and appliances you could want, great communal facilities - pool was lovely and clean and warm. Oct 2009.
  12. Very large open plan living - can keep an eye on kids while making tea. Oct 2009.
  13. We had a fantastic holiday really felt like home and brought the family closer together, the weather helped as it was sunny all week. We where able to walk through the woods and countryside, plenty of wildlife from hares, deer, geese to carp and bats, we also took our little one swimming for the first time. The pool was cleaned daily and was great fun, will be going back, 5 star holiday, fantastic. March 2009.
  14. The property was well equipped. The owners were friendly and helpful. There was a comprehensive folder of the local area with places of interest etc. The pool was clean and well maintained. It may be that it was because it was not during the school holidays, but it was very quiet and peaceful. Sept 2009.
  15. The property was spacious and clean. The surrounding area was well kept wit stunning views. Sept 2009.
  16. A fantastic base to explore the local area even in the winter. Fabulous facilities including well equipped, clean and quality accommodation. The children were delighted by the pool and games room. Feb 2008.
  17. A lovely, clean, spacious cottage in quiet, peaceful surroundings. Highly recommended for a quality ’family time’ break away. Feb 2008.
  18. The accommodation and facilities were luxurious and the setting superb. Our children, 13 years and 3 years, both had a fantastic time as the owners had made sure there was something to keep all ages of children entertained from pool and table tennis to puzzles and toys for the smaller ones. The highlight was the stunning indoor pool which is definitely the biggest we have seen on a small complex. We will definitely return for another holiday in the future. March 2007.
  19. Fantastic week - everything has been excellent. Loads to do/see and the cottages and pool are great! Sept 2006.
  20. Superb location and facilities, pool great. Enjoyed Longleat and Wookey Hole. Wells and Frome are quaint/historical. Lots to see and all close by. Stourhead is picturesque. May 2006.
