"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.

    Had a great time at Moorleaze Cottages celebrating a 21st Birthday with family. We stayed in a cottage for 10 called Stourheard, everything we needed there, lovely comforable beds and great bathroom facilities. The children spent most of their time in the lovely big swimming pool and games room. Would recommend for a family celebration or get together.

    The cottage was lovely but we felt it was in some need of TLC.

    We booked Stourhead so that all the family could be together to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday weekend. Also, I had booked tickets for Longleat’s Festival of Light so wanted somewhere close. I must admit I did panic when I realised that Stourhead was down quite narrow country lanes and knowing that December can throw almost any weather conditions at us, I wondered whether we would be able to get there, but we all found it and had a great weekend. The pool was the star attraction for four grandchildren plus parents and grandparents. The games room was also great for table tennis championships! The accommodation was like a tardis with plenty of room for everyone. And it was lovely having the heating on before we arrived so that the house was warm and cosy. Would thoroughly recommend Stourhead. Thankyou.
