The Experience

Emily has thought of every comfort in this clever new build: vast windows allow light to pour in, underfloor heating keeps you warm, the lighting is intimate, the artwork very good (some from local artists) including an exquisite hand blown glass bubble light from Syria. Downstairs is open plan with plenty of space, squishy sofas, wooden parquet floors, and doors which open to the walled garden – all yours.

The kitchen is to the side of the living space and you’ll find local milk, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and local honey – fresh flowers too. A farmhouse oak table means cooking and eating are sociable affairs. Upstairs are two soothing bedrooms and bathrooms: Kate Forman or Susie Watson fabrics, feather and down duvets, Bramley soaps and lotions.

There are lovely walks along the river to Mells and Great Elm, dropping in on pubs selling local cider and ales.

Once here you can abandon your car and choose between walking into town for gorgeous independent shops, markets and food producers. Also some superb restaurants. Or you can stroll along by the river to investigate Mells or Great Elm, discovering some lovely pubs with lethal cider and some interesting local ales. Returning from your adventures to such a gorgeous space will be a joy.

The neighbourhood

Frome is a bustling and arty town to explore. You're just a three-minute walk to bakeries, the Hesperian fishmonger and shop, two delis, great restaurants, a weekly farmers' market and monthly independent market for wine and more. It’s a few minutes further to Catherine Hill, famous for its many vintage shops. You're near to The Newt and also Hauser and Wirth, both with gorgeous gardens and superb food.

Local points of interest from Emily Doherty

  • The house is a five minute walk from the cafe culture and vintage shops of Frome's cobbled streets.
  • On the first Sunday of every month the Frome Independent Market takes over the town, and fills the streets with artisan bakers, butchers, farmers, artists, live cooking stalls, musicians and a huge antiques market.
  • Frome is filled with wonderful eateries: the Rye Bakery in its converted chapel, Eight Stony Street with pizza, extensive wine list and views of vintage Catherine Hill and Hesperian Fish down at Station approach, with delicious menu and East London vibes.
  • Wonderful walks abound from Frome including a river walk through the villages of Great Elm and Mells, (conveniently ending at much lauded The Talbot Inn, Mells). It is also surrounded by wild Somerset countryside - Salisbury Plain & the Mendips (AONB)
  • Frome is a perfect base for exploring the city of Bath, Salisbury Cathedral, Longleat House, Stourhead House and Gardens, Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Wells Cathedral, Kilver Court Designer Outlet, Hauser and Wirth Art and The Newt, Bruton.
  • Frome also has an independent cinema, several theatres and hosts a huge summer festival for artists, poets, musicians, comedians and chefs with workshops and events galore.


Emily Doherty

Emily and her family live in the substantial Georgian house next door but you're private and not overlooked. They designed the Coach House, very successfully, to look as though it had always been there, but they wanted an ultra modern interior. Emily loves Frome and its surrounding countryside and has used her experience in the arts to curate a collection for guests to enjoy and appreciate.
