Extra Amenities

These two lovely, semi-detached cottages have been beautifully restored by the owners who have a long history with the properties. Olde Oak Cottage (ref UK12890) is situated on the old A303 route and used to be a tearoom so many people may remember stopping here for a cup of tea and slice of cake whilst on their travels. It is steeped in history and the owners aim to relive this through its tasteful decoration, including exposed brick walls and two beautiful open fireplaces, one of which houses a wood burner. Oak Cottage (ref UKC4635) is an 18th century cottage of natural stone and render elevations and has been restored during late 2020 and Spring 2021 and is within 100 yards of the village centre.

Zeals is in an ideal location, with the World Heritage site of Stonehenge being only 23 miles to the east. The Jurassic Coastline, including Weymouth, Bournemouth, is approximately 45 miles and Weston-super-Mare on the Bristol Channel also 45 miles away. Bath, another World Heritage is 25 miles to the north. Other local attractions include Haynes Motor Museum and The Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton both of which are only a 30-minute drive. Aerospace Bristol housing Concorde and the large shopping centres at Cabot Circus and Cribbs Causeway make for another good day. The cathedral city of Salisbury, 23 miles to the east and The New Forest make for a pleasant day out.

The National Trust’s Stourhead House and Gardens is only one mile away. This is an all year round attraction with magnificent Rhododendrons in Spring, wonderful walks in the summer and stunning autumn colours. There is a Christmas Festival of Light during December and January. The cottages are 1-mile away from the Stour Valley Way, a well-trodden footpath from Stourhead to Christchurch in Dorset following the River Stour to this beautiful priory town. A wonderful collection of pubs are located nearby, one is just 150 yards away and two more are a 3-minute drive. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.
The properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 16 guest
