    Troopers Cottage sleeping up to 4 guests

    This stunning 1720s Georgian cottage is situated in the heart of the conservation area of Frome. Just a five minute walk from the artisan Catherine Hill, with its wonderful selection of independent shops and cafes, and a short stroll from the centre of this popular independent market town, this unique and historic property is a rare treat. Troopers Cottage has undergone extensive renovation work in the last year to restore key original features and now offers a stylish, well-presented combination of modern comforts and early Georgian architecture. If you are looking for peace and tranquillity, then this is the holiday property for you. Thick stone walls keep Troopers Cottage cool and calm in the summer and toasty warm in the winter: an all year round holiday experience that is rarely available. If you can tear yourself away from Frome, you will find Longleat House and Safari Park 15 minutes away by car; the peaceful Roman/Georgian city of Bath a mere 25 minutes distance and the vibrant city of Bristol just 45 minutes away. The surrounding area is also home to two of Somerset’s areas of outstanding natural beauty – Mendip Hills and Cranbourne Chase – as well as Wiltshire’s famous Stonehenge. Upon entering this open plan cottage, you will arrive in the cosy living area, which is dominated by the incredible original stone fireplace and bread oven. Brick partitions show some Victorian-era additions, separating the cooking area from a small warming seat that you are welcome to sit on! You can relax throughout the day on your choice of a leather sofa or occasional chairs while you watch live television or your favourite Netflix shows on the Smart TV, or choose from one of our offered range of books and board games. The cottage benefits from luxury vinyl flooring throughout, as well as many USB points to allow for easy charging. The super modern kitchen area consists of a glass dining table that seats four people and a bar stool to make cooking more of a sociable occasion. The kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher, washer dryer, electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer and microwave. You will also find a toaster and a coffeemaker to make breakfast easy for all. A stylish bathroom is also found on the ground floor, complete with walk-in shower, sink basin, heated towel rail and WC, as well as storage for your toiletries.
    Going up the carpeted stairs and past a stunning oak newel post, you arrive at the cottage’s two bedrooms. The king-size double bedroom looks out onto the quiet Dickensian-style street through two deep set windows with wide sills. A chest of drawers and set of hooks are provided for your clothes, as well as a hair dryer. In the single bedroom, you will find bunk beds sized for adults, as well as another chest of drawers and set of hooks. To the rear of the cottage, there is a fully enclosed small garden with a lawn and a patio area. A glass table with an umbrella for those balmy sunny days has four comfortable chairs so that you can relax out in the sun after a busy day of exploring. Dog owners will be pleased to know that the fencing is six feet tall and benefits from a latched gate. The history buffs among you may be interested in some of the history behind Troopers Cottage. Pictures around the cottage display various versions of the street and the building itself and you can find out more by delving into several provided books on the conservation area of Frome. Trinity Street, formerly known as Trooper’s Street, is steeped in centuries of historical interest. Not least is the 19th Century Holy Trinity church at the end of the street: a Grade II listed building with pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows designed by Edward Burne-Jones.
    Frome has appeared in The Sunday Times’ “best places to live in the UK” every year from 2017 to 2020, due to its abundance of history and natural beauty along with a wealth of independent shops. There are more listed buildings in Frome than in any other town in Somerset and an annual festival in July showcases the town’s vast cultural offering. Known as Somerset’s original market town (with Trooper’s Street originally built as a market street), Frome has held markets for centuries and continues to run its bustling independent market on the first Sunday of the month from March right through to December. The river Frome is a short walk away and provides the perfect backdrop for a tranquil afternoon stroll. Dog owners will find plenty of green spaces to exercise their companions, including the community-owned Whatcombe Fields. Plenty of restaurants and cafes can be found near the cottage and the city of Bath also offers a vast selection of eateries along with the Southgate Shopping Centre and the Thermae Bath Spa – Britain’s only natural thermal hot springs. The larger city of Bristol is known globally for its urban art and music scene and plays host to endless gigs, events and art exhibits as well as providing a wealth of inviting attractions such as the We The Curious interactive science centre, leading contemporary arts hub the Arnolfini, the exciting Bristol Zoo and numerous spot-as-you-walk Banksy street art pieces. Troopers Cottage sits in a truly enviable location that benefits from both the peace and quiet of semi-rural town life and the plethora of culture, events and activities in Frome and the surrounding area. It is best placed to let you explore everything that Somerset has to offer.

    Frome is a historic town in eastern Somerset on the banks of the River Frome. Situated in an enviable location, between the Cranborne Chase aonb and Mendip Hills aonb, you will find plenty of scenic walking routes, along with a wide selection of shops, cafés and pubs for delicious food. Catch a film at the Westway Cinema, take a stroll around Frome Museum and learn more of the extensive local history, or enjoy a stroll along the river. For a wonderful day out visit Longleat Wildlife and Safari Park and marvel at the incredible animals that now have a home within the Cranborne Chase aonb. Take a trip to Bath, the historic spa town where Jane Austen fans will delight in The Jane Austen Centre, or visit one of the spas for a relaxing retreat. Frome is the perfect spot for exploring Somerset.

    Dr Marshall – 1 Oct 2020
    " Previous reviews have highlighted the advantages of this recently renovated historic cottage and I concur with everything said. Because the internal dimensions are small great use has been made of the space but storage for clothes and coats etc is limited. The King sized bed is really comfy but difficult to access - anyone with mobility issues please note. But the fixtures, fittings, crockery and furniture are all top notch and it was always nice to get “home”. Wi fi was also excellent and the parking seemed to work ok even though it’s first come, first served. "

    " Lovely little cottage with great character. Frome also great to visit. Owner is most helpful as well. Really glad we booked this. Andy "
    Miss Jackson – 1 Sep 2020
    " There was only room to get out of one side of the double bed, but that's the only downside I can think of. Would also recommend the Old Bath arms in Frome for probably the nicest pub Sunday lunch we've had in ages - the food was so good. "
    Mr Whitman – 1 Aug 2020
    " Frome is an interesting town with lots of independent shops, easily reached on foot from the cottage. The bedrooms are rather small, although the beds themselves are comfortable. The stairs proved difficult for my wife, but would not be a problem for most. Overall the cottage was very good. "
    Mr Woodcock – 1 Jul 2020
    "It was a short walk to the town centre where we found lots of fantastic independent shops and cafes. The welcome pack was extremely helpful and contained ideas for several local walks including a highly recommended walk which took us along part of the River Frome and to wonderful countryside on the outskirts of the town. Frome is a great base if you want to explore other places in Somerset like Bath, Wells and Glastonbury. (All are well worth a visit.) I’d also like to add that Mel from Busy ..."

I’d also like to add that Mel from Busy Bees in Frome did a fantastic job cleaning the cottage for our stay. Hand and surface sanitizer were provided, which was very thoughtful. Anna, the cottage owner, responds to any queries quickly and is very polite and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Troopers Cottage and hope to visit again in the not too distant future. "

    "Very comfy king size bed in small bedroom so access at one side of the bed only and space there limited (perhaps a foot or less). 3 drawers for clothing space so pack light. Milk, coffee, tea and biccies kindly provided by owner."
    - Dr Allington, September 2020
    "The cottage was very clean and well equipped. It was perfect to explore Frome and the local area. We loved our week away and it really felt like a home from home"
    - Mrs Smith, October 2020
    "Troopers cottage was beautiful and had everything required, the location is excellent and host was extremely helpful, had a lovely weekend here thank you"
