Gas central heating. There is a sofa bed in the sitting room along with a further sofa, television and dvd player. Parking available on street nearby (Weymouth Road) but no dedicated parking area (unloading outside is acceptable). You can park overnight/24 hrs in 2 of the car parks in Frome, one in the centre of town for £5.60 (5 minutes walk from the Cottage) and one on the opposite hill from the Cottage heading out of town for £2.90 (10 minutes walk from the Cottage). Walking distance from train station (15 mins) and bus stops. The cottage is the perfect base for anyone wanting to relax and do very little, maybe just a stroll out for a cup of coffee or tea, wander up and down Catherine Hill exploring the unique shops, a lazy lunch, and everything is within walking distance - although be warned, Catherine Hill is quite steep and cobbled, for those with mobility problems. There are plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants within easy reach of the cottage, and Frome has a good selection of food shops if you enjoy self catering. More

About the neighborhood
Frome is a lovely historic market town, it has something for everyone. Small enough to be friendly and welcoming, large enough to have plenty to offer in the way of coffee shops, bars, restaurants, cinema, theatres, galleries, shops, markets etc etc.Catherine Hill is a little cobbled street full of charming independent shops, you will want to visit every single one! It is quite steep so a stop here and there is not a bad idea. It is a community filled with creative and like minded people, where everyone chats with everyone. The older parts of Frome around Catherine Hill and Sheppards Barton are picturesque containing an outstanding collection of late 17th and 18th century small houses. Stoney Street which leads into Catherine Hill is a steep cobbled road climbing out of the town centre....
Getting around
Frome is easily accessible by train from London or Bristol and buses run regularly to Bath, Shepton Mallet, Warminster etc. Bristol is our nearest airport, from there you can take a bus into Bristol or Bath and Frome is just a 20 minute train journey on from Bath.
