Secluded studio with private access & patio, only 15min drive from Babington House. You'll enjoy your own al fresco dining area, hammock and a sun lounger. With great star gazing opportunities on most nights! Only 5 minutes walk down the hill and you're in the heart of historical Frome - regular filming location for Poldark. Town is buzzing first Sunday of each month with popular Frome Independent Market attracting thousands of people. Great base to explore Somerset. Light breakfast included.
A compact studio with en-suite shower and basic kitchenette (sink, mini fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave, no hob). It's perfect for two people, or one person with a child.
NOTE :: let us know in advance if you're thinking of booking the studio on behalf of someone else who's not on Airbnb. As we'd like to know you'd be staying there before approval.
There is a kingsize bed that you can fold up during the day (if you're coming for longer period of time perhaps). Otherwise we believe it's a perfect space to crush after long country walks! Direct access to the garden and your private patio.
If you're coming to the market on Sunday, we suggest you leave a car on our road after you check out, as we are literally 5min walk down the hill to the market stalls.
Parking on the market day in designated car parks is free but can be a pain - so take advantage of our easy parking!
‘Va-va-Frome’ – The Times
‘Talk about a wake up call. When it comes to buzz, most towns should want what Frome is having’ – Oxford Mail
‘A town full of independent, individual shops that are brimming with fabulous crafts and creations’ – The Lady Magazine
Our studio is right in the heart of town - well, five minute walk down the hill to the centre - yet enjoying a peaceful, lush setting by an old apple tree.
Please plan your entertainment ahead as Frome restaurants fill up easily! Best to book a table at least a week in advance, especially over weekends. See selection on our map.
If you're staying for a few nights, we highly recommend Westway Cinema! Tickets are only £4 per person and it's a lovely venue with nice gin and tonics, ice cream, comfy seats and independent feel. Again, early booking recommended to get good seats.
Highlighted as one of the Times “Best Places to Live in Britain”, Frome is also a welcoming, charming and vibrant place to visit, with a wealth of history, culture and natural beauty. Packed to the rafters with historic buildings, beautiful independent shops and creative people, Frome is a wonderfully eventful town.
It is the perfect destination for discerning tourists looking for something just a little bit different on visits to Somerset.
Frome is also the original Somerset Market Town, a hugely important destination hosting a thriving market since the time the ink was still wet on The Domesday Book. This tradition continues today with regular markets every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Mon's sted er en liten fristed. Leiligheten ligger en rolig spasertur fra Frome sentrum, og er kompakt, men fredelig og veldig vakker. Sengen er behagelig og hjemmet er fullt av gjennomtenkte berøringer. Et herlig sted å sovne med dørene åpne mens du lytter til fuglene i hagen.Joseph2019-08-26T00:00:00Z

Vi hadde det mest fantastiske oppholdet på man og Mark's sted! Plassen var vakker og hadde alt vi trengte med de vakreste ekstra detaljer for å gjøre opplevelsen vår litt mer spesiell. Man kunne ikke vært mer behjelpelig til tross for at vi hadde det litt vanskelig ved ankomst, og selv om hun ikke var der personlig gjorde hun alt hun kunne for å gjøre ting lettere for oss. Hele helgen vår var drømmende. Jeg vil anbefale dette stedet i hjertet!Harriet2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
