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.

Spacious living/dining room with well-equipped country-style oak kitchen area. First floor: Double bedroom with 5ft bed. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with shower bath and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very nice holiday cottage. The kids loved the play barn, the swimming pool was great. Very well appointed throughout. A couple of minor gripes - very squeaky floorboards, and the carpet could have done with a bit of a clean. Sept 2011.
  2. Probably the best group of cottages I have rented for the half-term week. Especially appreciated the extent and quality of the fittings and fixtures. Oct 2010.
  3. Easy reach of the pool, clean. May 2010.
  4. The place was really nice and very welcoming, even though we were early. March 2010.
  5. Good level of standard. Dec 2009.
  6. The property was very clean bed linen and towels top quality, alot of space. Sept 2009.
  7. Let was clean and roomy, adequate for 4 people. Aug 2009.
  8. Clean and well managed very good for families, friendly and approachable owner, one other family re booked before leaving. Well kept up to date with added details e.g. simple things that may not seem much on their own but made things easy, like full set of cookware. Kitchen scales, all towels include for use in accommodation and swimming pool, plenty of parking. Aug 2009.
  9. It was a wonderful restful holiday, lots of fresh air and lovely places near by. Feb 2008.
  10. Fantastic holiday, have stayed here before, would go back, just a fabulous place. The children loved it. Oct 2008.
  11. The property was very clean and comfortable. The shared amenities were excellent. We would go there again. Dec 2007.
  12. This property was a real home-from-home; spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything you could possibly need for a really relaxing holiday. This was our second visit to this property and we’re already planning our third! Oct 2007.
  13. This was a very friendly cottage with helpful owners and very clean with plenty to do for children.The pool was fab..Very central for days out, Longleat 15 minute drive. Chedder 30 minute drive..We all enjoyed it and would return one day and recommend it to friends and family. May 2007.
  14. Marvellous facilities which will suit all. Good location in terms of being a base to go to other places of interest e.g. Longleat, Clarke’s Shopping Village and Fleet Air Arm Museum. We have stayed in a few other properties advertised with your company but this one has been the best. Oct 2006.
  15. Fantastic cottage with gorgeous views and great for a baby. Excellent villages nearby, can see why it’s a 5 star. Be going home very relaxed. Sept 2006.
