Description

Wells is perfect for that action-packed family holiday. Enjoy the games room and climbing frame or drive to the nearby attractions.

" 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.

    We had a great time at the cottage. The pool, sauna and games room was great, just remember to bring 50p pieces for the pool table! In a lovely setting and lots of wildlife around

    Wells was very comfortable, we enjoyed our weeks stay, even had lovely weather, only down points were, Main door very hard to lock from inside (noticed in visitor book this had been mentioned many times before) Upstairs bathroom door lock mechanism kept falling out (also been mentioned in past comments by visitors) Tap in kitchen sink leaking needs new washers. New cloths aired needed the one supplied was kept together by tape, couldn't really put many items on it before it collapsed. But these things didn't really spoil our week away.

    The cottage was clean, well equipped and had everything we wanted. The tennis court, swimming pool and games room was used constantly and made the holiday.

    Had a great time. Good facilities and well equipped. You need a car to get about but in a good location to explore the area. Good local pub too

    We had a great time. The cottage suited us very well, a nice layout & more spacious than we'd anticipated. The games room was well tested & challenges amongst us to win the next table tennis, snooker or football game continued through our week. The sauna & pool was a treat virtually everyday. We picked a breaks in the weather for some enjoyable walks some ending at great hostelries. Visits to national trust properties, Wells Cathedral & other locations offered trips out. We packed our week, had a great time and no doubt will return at some point.
