Living in Frome

A well-connected, rural location

Two of North Somerset's main road routes connect Frome with Bruton, Warminster and Bath. Plus, you’re not far from the Wiltshire border, and national landmarks such as Stonehenge are under a half-an-hour drive away.   

Frome’s train station also offers an early morning weekday service to London Paddington, which can take just over an hour and a half.   

For international flights, head to Bristol Airport which is approximately under half an hour by car. 

Epic days out

For adventures in the great outdoors, the Mendips and Cranborne Chase – both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – offer stunning scenery and are under an hour away by car. And there’s also a cycleway from Frome all the way into Bath – and, of course, Longleat wild-animal park.  

For an epic change of scenery, the cathedral city of Warminster is only a 20 minute drive away, and provides both excellent shopping and culture destinations.

Everyday (picturesque) amenities 

Famous for its monthly Frome Independent, award-winning street market, the town centre is home to historic cobbled streets filled with independent shops, galleries and cafés. 

A charming place to live, Frome has many picturesque spots, and in this family-friendly small town you have a wide range of everyday amenities within easy reach. The town is also only a half-an-hour drive to the city amenities of beautiful Bath.  

Families with children can choose from primary, middle and secondary school education in the town. North Somerset is also home to some highly regarded independent schools. For further education and vocational courses, Bath College at Radstock is just 8 miles away.
