Sightseeing around Frome
The great thing about Frome is its walkability – relics of the town’s past are scattered in among its more contemporary offerings. While you’re exploring the artisan quarter that hugs Catherine Hill, stop by Valentine’s Lamp, a gaudy gaslight hung with a George V post box from which to send your love letters. Bring stamps. With Cupid on his way, tap “Cheap Street” into Google Maps to see the leat that flows down the road – after all, Frome’s name, roughly means “brisk flowing river”. Beyond this, we recommend scouting out your future home among the honey-stone buildings: Blue House, Rook Lane Chapel and Gentle Street are camera-ready spots to add to your itinerary.
