Situated in the heart of the Mendips, Frome is one of Somerset's finest artisan towns and boasts an inclusive community spirit and a reputation as a centre for arts and crafts. It hosts a diverse annual Festival each July and an artisan market every first Sunday each month. The town's station offers a direct service to London Waterloo, and local towns and cities, including Bath, Bristol and Salisbury, and connections via local feeder stations into Paddington. Situated in a popular location in what is known locally as the 'Artisan's Quarter' it provides easy access to all of the facilities that the town has to offer. An enjoyable five minute stroll through historic Sheppards Barton and down the cobbled Catherine Hill, its boutique shops, restaurants and coffee bars, takes you to the centre of town. A five minute walk in the opposite direction up Wine Street and Park Road takes you to the gates of the Steiner Academy and Victoria Park. A short jaunt to the edge of town offers a theatre, sports and social club, rugby and football clubs. Further afield, the beautiful village of Mells is only 10 minutes' drive away, Babington 15 minutes and the City of Bath 30 minutes.
