Description

If you are looking for the perfect holiday home for a large family gathering then look no further, Longleat is fantastic!

"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. Twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower bath and toilet. First floor: Two double bedrooms, each with 5ft bed, and one with en-suite shower room and toilet. Two twin bedrooms. Bathroom and toilet.

    Lovely cottage and very friendly and helpful host. Overall a good,modern standard with good facilities. The kitchen equipment was good but for a unit which accommodates 10 guests there perhaps could have been some more frying pans and serving bowls. A larger hob and maybe a double oven would have been useful although there were two microwaves which at least one was a combi oven. One other suggestion is that there could be some very small divider for a small amount of privacy between each property at the front as if one group is having a bbq or meal outside then they look directly into the next unit which is a bit off putting for both.

    Brilliant accommodation at moorleaze cottages. Cleanliness the best we have stayed in. Beds so comfy and they had thought of everything to make our stay perfect. Rooms so spacious, we had a cottage for 10 people plenty of room. On site amenities lovely large swimming pool to use. The surrounding area very tranquil. Not to far from places to visit. We had a really lovely week. Will return.

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

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are sorry that we were not suitable for your gathering but Moorleaze is very family friendly and as the photographs clearly show, the cottages are grouped together. We are though still of the view that would have been unreasonable of us to ignore so many complaints from other guests.

    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.
