The
Experience

A touch of the country in town – a buzzing town too: Frome is bursting with culture, galleries, quirky shops and great markets, all a short walk away. Connected by an impressive architect-designed walkway to the owners’ house, but facing the other way so you’ll feel nicely private, this generous 19th-century coach house overlooks big gardens and a tennis court. Step in to a pristine open-plan space with sparkling lights and a superb oak floor. Sitting room, dining room and smart kitchen blend into one, there are guide books and maps to inspire you, a wood-burner, and logs from the garden to get you going. The Greens like to support local craftsmen and food producers and encourage you to order staples from Somerset Local Food Direct; Nicola will put the goodies in the fridge for you. Your bedroom above, a galleried sanctuary for two, comes with a compact shower, a generous bed and a lovely low window that pulls the outside in. Enjoy Frome’s farmers’ market (one of the best), cocktail and dinner at the Archangel in town, trot up Catherine Hill for vintage shopping. Beyond? Wells, Longleat, Stourhead, Bath, and Somerset’s sweet hills.

Reviews

Lovely stay at the coach house, everything we needed to cook with, the fresh flowers were so thoughtful and it’s great to arrive and have some lovely biscuits waiting. Beautiful, quiet and well cared for. Also we happened to be featured in the local paper that week and Nicola took the time and trouble to send us a copy. Wonderful host, Many Thanks!

Jo, Surbiton

Thank you Nicola and Chris for a lovely few days in the coach house. It is a lovely conversion and so quiet and yet so close to town. Also you thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable from local info to food essentials. We loved the local walks and took advantage of the proximity of good restaurants, cafes and music venues in Frome - overall a great break!

Jane, London

We had the most lovely time staying at this very comfortable and cosy coach house. We both agreed that this is one of the best self-catering places we have stayed at - Nicola and Chris have thought of EVERYTHING you could possibly need. A great base for exploring with lots of places to visit nearby and we thoroughly enjoyed Frome itself with its many wonderful shops and eateries a mere 10 minutes stroll away.

Anne-marie, Stratford-upon- avon

Without doubt one of the best equipped and most comfortable cottages we have stayed in. Within walking distance of Frome the coach house has everything you need for a relaxing break. It is within easy reach of a number of interesting places including Wells, Glastonbury, Bradford on Avon and the National Trust property at Stourhead.

Allan, Northwich

The perfect getaway cottage - stepping distance to a gorgeous garden, walking distance to a hip little town, driving distance to beautiful countryside

Janet, London

A serendipitous booking and a relaxing stay. We enjoyed sauntering around Frome which is interesting with a friendly, vibrant vibe. The Coachhouse is well appointed and comfortable and an easy walk into the town. Hosts Nicola and Chris were very kind and met us at the station. Many thanks!

Margaret, Melbourne

We have had such an enjoyable few days here and even the weather was amazing. Have particularly enjoyed the use of the garden and am thrilled to have seen the first bullfinch I've seen in years, on your feeder. Must recommend the walk to Mells and lunch in the community shop/cafe.

Colin, South woodham ferrers

We have loved staying here. Such a comfortable and beautifully furnished conversion and a great location for exploring the area. We particularly appreciated the well-equipped kitchen and the wealth of tourist information. Thank you for everything- we hope to come again."

Victoria, Kingston upon thames

We stayed at the Coach House whilst visiting relatives in Frome. The house is so convenient for walking into this interesting and thriving town. Its warm and cosy with everything you might need. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds comfortable. Even a sound system on the TV.

Lynda, Buxton

A marvellous place. I've felt right at home here, which is why I've stayed 4 times already and will most definitely be back soon. Everything about Holmwood is wonderful: great location, splendid house and of course the delightful owners.

Jan, Wijer

The Coach House is as lovely as the website suggested. The house is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The Green family were very welcoming, providing lots of local information in the cottage to inform days out of which there are many and they were able to advise us about all things Frome. One of the best things about Holmwood’s location is that it is in a peaceful leafy situation, ideal for relaxing, outside or in, but is only five minutes’ walk from Frome centre. We had a really memorable holiday here and hope to return.
