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 guests.

The Hot Tub



    We had the privilege of being the first group to stay in this accommodation, a party of 8 (2 families). We were welcomed by the owners with scones, jam, cream and fresh milk to make us feel comfortable which was a lovely touch. The fixtures and fittings are all of high quality with a well equipped kitchen our stay was made easy and comfortable, big cooker and generous sized fridge help with a large group! It’s a beautiful referb of a characterful and historic old building. Russel and Tania are great hosts with plenty of local knowledge and attentive to any of our needs. The two local pubs are both very nice, great food and beer gardens, one is literally in sight of the cottage!! We had some lovely days out at nearby Longleat and Bath, it’s located well for accessing big parts of that part of the country. Beds all plush and comfortable, linen, towels and bathrooms all add a touch of luxury. We would strongly recommend it to all and will return in the future I’m sure. Thanks for a lovely week, unfortunately you can’t control the weather!!

    Very comfortable cottage that was well equipped. Needs a few bits of finishing off to make it perfect. I’m sure that will soon be soon. Very welcoming and attentive hosts.

    Russel & Tania we’re great hosts who couldn’t do enough to ensure our stay was perfect. The cottage is in a great location to explore and we used it as a base to walk some of the stour valley way from. The local pub was great for dinner and the cottage had everything else we need for our stay. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a countryside stay.
