    About this property

    Shaftesbury is set in an idyllic location where there are an abundance of walks to enjoy through the 76 acres of grounds.
    "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. Double bedroom with 5ft bed and en-suite shower room with toilet. First floor: Two twin bedrooms. Bathroom with toilet.

    "Shaftesbury cottage is a fabulous place to stay. It’s spacious, clean and everything catered for. The indoor swimming pool is fabulous and the games room and tennis courts were used by us a lot. You definitely need a car as it’s a long way to shops etc. but a lovely quiet place to stay."

    "Lovely cottage. Well equipped and spotlessly clean. Excellent location too"
    Laura ‐ 10 Feb 2018
    "A nice cottage but not much to do in the local area. I rated it 6 for a few reasons... Our cottage had a really bad smell of drains in one bedroom which we reported and we moved at least 20 dead flies. The swimming pool was nice but the chemicals in it were so strong that both my husband and daughter had a reaction to it and so we couldn’t use it. We had to use the local leisure centre instead! Generally a bit disappointing."
