" 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.

    Very family orientated, we were not allowed to stay up late or make too much noise! Very close to neighbours.

    Longleat is one of eight terraced holiday accommodations on Moorleaze Farm on the outskirts of Witham Friary village. Roads into the village are typical country lanes and are single track in places which can lead to some awkward manoeuvres when meeting oncoming traffic, more so if the oncoming is a tractor with a trailer loaded with hay bales. The accommodation has an excellent indoor swimming pool in a purpose built pool room that includes changing rooms and showers. In addition, there is a outdoor playground which has a climbing frame slide and swings and there is an indoor playroom which has a bar football table, table tennis and a pool table for kids and adults and for younger children there is a toy corner which catered well for the 5 year old and the 2.5 year old members of our party. The accommodation itself is simple but sufficient for self-catering, with cooker, dishwasher, washing machine/tumble dryer. There are a few creaking floorboards but nothing to really complain about.

    When we booked our cottage we did not appreciate that it was in the middle of an accommodation complex and that they were not individual cottages. We would have liked our own private space with our own outside dining table and BBQ. Our cottage slept 10 but outside communal tables would only sit 8 so ate inside for convenience and privacy. Having to share 4 bbq's amongst about 10 cottages is not on at the prices you are expected to pay for a week in a cottage. Swimming pool, games room etc were excellent and didn't gab find them over busy. Much enjoyed by the children. Facilities in the cottage were good although again would have expected sky sports channel to be included. Shower in downstairs bathroom needs to be modernised. Did not see the owners and again would have expected them to make a visit to check everything ok and that we knew how to work everything. Like radiators in the bathrooms to dry towels.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Following your comments we have reviewed the website description, photographs and Google satellite views to understand why you were under the impression that Longleat was an individual cottage rather than part of a cottage complex. Similarly we make no reference to Sky TV anywhere. We would like to thank you however for your kind comments about our facilities, and the suggestion about having more BBQs. This has never been raised before, but the idea is a good one and we will act upon it. We will also review the shower room. Finally we don't quite understand the comment about not being greeted by us, as my wife met with the older gentleman of the party on arrival, directed him to his cottage and explained where we lived and how to reach us if necessary.

    This is a great place to get together as a family all under one roof. We really enjoyed the games room and the swimming pool.
