Find out more about Frome

Rock stars, Formula One heroes and TV personalities have all frequented Frome in recent years. Even the Queen of Pop herself Madonna has been said to have been spotted in this charming Somerset town over the years.But what is it that attracts A-listers to a 26,000 population town south of Bath?

Its incredible beauty is a sure-fire pull for many people looking to buy property in the area.

Frome is also home to superb community spirit. This was shown when a crowd funding scheme allowed a disused public toilet to be transformed into a café and art gallery.

The aforementioned close proximity to the tourism hotspot of Bath - and the cosmopolitan city of Bristol for those looking for something a little more lively - is another tick in Frome’s favour.

An afternoon tiring out the young ones at the nearby Junction 21 Kids Play Centre, meanwhile, is a guaranteed win for parents.

Speaking of which, schools in Frome are also well respected. The Steiner School Academy opened in Corsley in 2012 before moving to Frome two years later. Despite being a young school it has attained a good Ofsted report which praised the institution’s staff and noted that a love of learning was being developed amongst its pupils.

Meanwhile, the monthly market sits well within the town’s array of independent shops, bars and restaurants, again cultivating a family feel and vibe of community spirit throughout the area.

Travel a few miles outside of Frome and there is a treasure trove of attractions on your doorstep. Longleat Safari and Adventure Park is perhaps one of the primary draws, but there is also Brokeswood Country Park, Splodges Play Centre and Hope Nature Centre all right on your doorstep. The moated Medieval Nunney Castle, meanwhile, provides a real slice of history for those looking at property for sale in Frome.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801822868-ADNFCR
