’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 40-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 and children’s playground 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 very brief but fabulous stay at Wookey Cottage on Moorleaze farm. We were only there 2 nights and arrived quite late on the Friday night as we found a local pub for dinner first before arriving. The cottage is modern, bright, spacious and a good size. The view from the windows is stunning. Lovely grounds although we didn't really get a chance to explore. The swimming pool is well worth a visit and we were impressed with the rota which allowed each cottage a whole hour with the pool to yourself. We would love to come back in the summer and stay for longer so we can thoroughly explore the place and surrounding area.

The cottage is in a block shared by others in a courtyard. Each property has its own outdoor seating and barbeques available (bring own charcoal etc.). The property was very comfortable with nice sofas and beds. Not many 10 scores and largely because of covid restrictions (September 2021). All of the 8 and 9 ratings are down to covid restrictions. Nevertheless, the owners have put in a lot of effort into complying with restrictions to make a stay very comfortable. Not many glasses or mugs etc. due to covid, which meant more frequent washing up and use of the dishwasher. But we coped OK as there were only two of us staying. Upstairs bedrooms are in the loft space so one has to be a little careful with bumping heads on the ceiling on one side. The kitchen is well equipped with washer/drier, microwave, hob and oven plus a dishwasher. Recycling facilities excellent but requires a manual sort into metals, plastic and so on. Good for the environment and a pity more councils do not do this. The heated indoor swimming pool (the water is warm) is large for a holiday let and one can swim pretty good lengths - depth of pool is 1.5 metres throughout. There are pool shared times and a rota for each cottage - covid again. It's a proper swimming pool, not one of those tiny ones where you cannot swim far. Tennis court with hard tarmac surface and an indoor games room with lots for kiddies to play with plus a pool table, table tennis and football. Also outside play area and room for things like football. There are extensive grounds including woodland, ponds and grassed areas for walking on the property (map supplied). The local pub is within walking distance but sadly not doing food whilst we were there but there are other pubs within driving distance of 15 minutes or so. The pub at Nunney was excellent and there are reviews by the owners of many other eating establishments/pubs. We did have a problem with flies most evenings having the rear French doors and front door open (it was quite warm) so one might like to bring a can of fly spray. The location is down narrow country lanes and allow for around 15 minutes drive to the main A roads (assuming careful driving down single track roads). Whilst this may be a pain for some, it did make for a quiet and peaceful stay. Otherwise the location is fairly central and easy to drive to other places of interest. For those that want sea and sand, the coast is about 2 hours drive away! Places like Cley Hill, Longleat, Nunney castle (ruin), Stourhead, coal mining museum at Radstock and the East Somerset heritage railway are nearby. The location suited us as we went in all directions - mainly to National Trust and English Heritage sites. Overall - a very nice place to stay and if you didn't want to drive far, the amenities on site are very good. The price of the cottage included use of all the amenities on site.

We had two really lovely weeks at Moorleaze. The cottage was comfortable, spacious, spotlessly clean and contained everything we could have needed. The swimming pool, games room, tennis court and football field were all very well used by us, and were just as good as the cottage itself. It was the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday.
