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 pool was fantastic and despite very rainy weather, the games room kept our children happily occupied. Very friendly and helpful owner. August 2012.
  2. It was an absolutely stunning venue and really good value for money. Simple and clean decor, with all linen and towels provided. If you like swimming this is an ideal venue - the swimming pool is to die for, found it very very difficult to get the kids out! Again towels provided and we spent so much time in the pool we didn’t even use our bathrooms! HIghly recommend it. Beautiful scenery as well and a jolly lovely walk the the Lamb Inn which sold heavenly locally produced food and HOMEMADE desserts. Dec 2011.
  3. Excellent accommodation and pool in very pretty location. All the facilities were very clean and well kept. We will definitely return to this wonderful complex. Sept 2011.

  8. The property was amazing, great facilities which added immensely to the value for money approach we took to the holiday as a whole.

  10. The accommodation was ideal for our group, plenty of space, clean and functional throughout. June 2009.

  12. The standard of the accommodation was excellent with quality furnishings. The owners couldn’t have been more helpful and the location was lovely. We went with a large party (48) and everyone was of a similar opinion. We intend going back and couldn’t recommended it enough. Nov 2008.
  13. Owners are genuinely committed to making your stay a good one. Bottle of milk in fridge on arrival for a cup of tea after a long journey is a nice touch. Our 3rd visit and we will definitely come back. May 2008.
  14. This was an excellent place to bring young children as there was an indoor pool a games room and plenty of room to run around. Although all the cottages were full it did not feel crowded at all and we often had the pool to ourselves. A lovely, relaxing place to stay. April 2008.
  15. What a great place. A lovely peaceful break. Longleat a classic day out. July 2006.
  16. Thank you for a wonderful stay. The cottage was beautiful and so well equipped, and the children were in heaven with the games room and pool. We will recommend you to all our friends! Sept 2006.
