Holmwood Coach House, built in mellow Bath stone and set in an acre of garden and woodland, full of birdsong and home to owls, woodpeckers, bats, badgers and foxes, is an easy walk into the centre of Frome so gives you a tranquil setting and the best of the town’s shops, galleries, cafes and markets on your doorstep.

You have an ideal base here to explore the counties of Somerset and Wiltshire and the heritage city of Bath, as well as discover the hidden delights of the town’s listed buildings, independent shops and lively arts scene. The highlight is the annual festival which for ten days each July rejuvenates the cultural life of the town with music, arts, films, walks and talks.

The holiday let is situated behind the main house, designed in the 1860’s by the Frome architect W.G. Brown, and is set well back from the road. We live in the main house, so are on hand if you wish to ask about the local area. An information folder with plenty of tips for things to do is maintained in the property.

Stock up from market stalls on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, the weekly Thursday country market and the award winning farmers’ market in the Cheese and Grain on the second Saturday of each month.

The Frome Independent Market is held in a traffic free town centre on the first Sunday of the month between March and December, with stalls selling local food and drink and a selection of independent produce, against a backdrop of music, visual art and events.

Enjoy browsing in the shops which line medieval Cheap Street with its stream running down the middle and steep, cobbled Catherine Hill and choosing where to eat and drink either in town or in the surrounding villages and countryside.

The holiday accommodation is perfect for weekends or longer breaks. Previous guests have found it makes a convenient base for attending workshops at the Bicycle Academy and Cooper Hall performance venue.
