WHERE TO STAY IN FROME
Finding good accommodation in Frome is easy - there’s a great selection to choose from; everything from a simple camp site for your pop-up tent through to entire luxury homes in substantial grounds. Frome also has a growing Airbnb list, and the great thing about Frome is that its compact layout and centralised facilities mean that a stay in the town itself puts practically everything within walking distance of everything else! You may wish to look no further than the following lovely properties here on Fabulous Frome, under Bed & Breakfast, Hotels & Pubs, or Self Catering & Campsites.
Airbnb accommodation in Frome
As mentioned above, the list of Airbnb properties is growing with the town’s popularity and there are dozens of properties beginning at under £30 per night (for a single bed in a modest room with shared bathroom) to entire large cottages. Be careful in your search, however, as simply searching for ‘Frome’ will bring up many properties that are miles outside of the town. Within the town centre (to keep everything within walking distance), there are properties that can accommodate four adults, including a converted church for around £250 per night. You can search for an Airbnb property here.
Self-catering accommodation in Frome
There are a multitude of companies offering self-catering accommodation in the environs of Frome. Be very careful when you search though – either have a good detailed map to hand (like an OS Explorer at 1:25,000 – and the Explorer series numbers that cover everything around Frome are numbers 142 and 143) or a map app open on your phone or laptop etc because searching for Frome (on at least three sites we checked out) seemed to sweep up everything within about 12 miles (road miles, not as the crow flies, fortunately) so properties that are much nearer Bath than Frome were popping up in search results.
If you are cool about driving around a lot that’s fine but for some visitors a holiday home in a central location is far preferable, as so much of historic Frome can be reached on foot and there are no worries about staying under the drink-drive limit.
Self-catering accommodation is in plentiful supply but, again, check the precise locations to avoid disappointment. Here is a selection of links to sites offering self-catering properties:
