Unforgettable stays in Frome

These days Frome is trending hot on social media as well as in the national papers. It's no surprise. With a thriving art scene, picturesque medieval streets, artisan food and drinks along with shops that are selling something different than the usual high street, Frome is to delight in all senses.

We have been receiving a record number of new visitors to our lovely town, some weekenders are coming for the monthly independent market, some people bring the kids along and snoop around for relocation potential.

Whatever your reason for a visit, we have the inside knowledge of the best places to put your head down, in and around Frome. Be quick though, these gems are sure to get snapped up quickly! 

Niddy Noddy Cottage just off the famous Catherine Hill is perfectly positioned for a stroll on the cobbles for coffee and some retail therapy in the independent shops. The 18th century weavers cottage is ideal for couples and families offering two comfortable bedrooms. There is a fireplace in the sitting room to cosy up in the evenings.

A bit further up the hill in Badcox you will find the charming french Bistro Lotte with not only delicious food but also delightful rooms above the restaurant. The rooms come with flaky croissants for breakfast at the bistro. They also have a sister bar, Bar Lotte next door with wonderful live music on Wednesdays.

Further afield in neighbouring Mells, the Talbot Inn has been welcoming weary visitors since the 15th century. Enjoy hearty pub food before you crawl into their comfortable beds. Wonderful morning walks on your doorstep are a bonus. 

In the other direction towards Longleat forest, in Maiden Bradley, you will find the recently renovated Bradley Hare offering seasonal, local food catering to all dietary requirements, an eclectic wine list and romantic rooms.


Further still in Bruton, half an hours drive from Frome, there is a lot to discover. The world renowned art gallery Hauser and Wirth Somerset for your art fix, Smouk Interiors for anything moroccan, The Chapel for pizza and Number One Bruton for a unique stay. The hotel consists of a Georgian town house, a medieval forge and a row of cottages, a true Somerset experience. 

For the ultimate countryside experience, the Grade II listed Georgian manor Babington House ticks all the boxes: gorgeous rooms, swimming pools, the original Cowshed spa, tennis court and extensive grounds for walking. 

We hope that you find something to excite you and press the book button. We looking forward to welcoming you in our friendly, buzzing town.
