About the Accommodation

If you’re looking for the feel of a country cottage in the heart of a thriving market town, then Apple Cottage is your idyllic home from home. As suggested by the name, Apple Cottage was once a grocer’s shop within a bustling street community, and today independent shops, bars and cafés are still just a few steps away on historic cobbled streets. Families, couples and groups of friends will all feel welcomed and relaxed by the light, airy rooms and beautiful interiors in a cottage setting. And to make this homely retreat even more special, it is ideally located just a short car or train journey from dozens of fantastic local attractions and historic towns.

At Apple Cottage you will feel immersed in historic Frome, while holidaying in a stylish modern home. ‘Cyril’s Fruiterer and Grocer’ shop formerly stood on this spot, until the building was lovingly rebuilt in the 1990s, with Cherry Cottage just next door.

Enter the cottage through the front door, and you will be greeted by a modern light-filled kitchen. This space is fully equipped with all-new amenities, so that you can cook up a homemade family feast or romantic dinner with ease. Breakfast at your leisure while seated by the rebuilt shop window, and watch the world go by on Vallis Way.

At the back of the cottage you will find a generously sized living room, with two sumptuous sofas on which to recline while treating yourself to a Netflix box set, or an engrossing read. There is also ample room here for kids (of all ages!) to enjoy the games and toys provided in the house.

Patio doors at the back of the living room help to bring the outside in, and give you easy access to a secluded Mediterranean-style garden complete with barbeque, where the children can burn off some energy, and the adults can sip on sundowners on a balmy Frome evening.

Upstairs are two good-sized double bedrooms, which can accommodate two couples or a family very comfortably. A travel cot is also available for family use. Fresh linen on comfy new mattresses ensures a good night’s sleep for all, and little quirky interior details lend a contemporary feel. The bright family bathroom is supplied with every convenience for a relaxing stay, with towels, soap and a baby bath provided. A homely country cottage to savour while enjoying the vibrant delights of historic Frome.

Notes on our cleaning procedures For your comfort and peace of mind we are spending an extra hour at each property prior to arrival, to ensure all touch surfaces are disinfected in line with government recommendations (see here). All sheets and towels are laundered thoroughly at high temperatures with quality non-biological laundry soap.

Although you can’t park directly in front of the property there is a large free car park to the rear which always has spaces and can fit for any size of vehicle. The roads around the property are free road parking too. Plenty of options.


The property is situated by at least 10 restaurants, shops, coop and takeaways. You will want for nothing with so many options on your doorstep! Frome is a vibrant market town dating back to the 17th century. Its cobbled streets are filled with interesting and intriguing spots to visit. Boutique shops and artisan produce to peruse, an array of independent bars and restaurants, there is something to suit every taste and budget. Whether you want to explore the numerous historic buildings, stroll through one of its parks or take in a show, Frome won’t disappoint. Permanent fixtures include the museum and art centre, whilst scheduled events are also a great pull for the area. The most famous being the Frome Independent Market, taking place on the 1st Sunday of the month.


You can travel by car to local attractions (see guide book) or simply use public transport. Frome is very well linked. Bikes can be hired from Frome council through their website 'Discover Frome'.
