Easy to get to, peaceful and unspoilt, the beautiful county of Somerset has great history and stunning landscapes. This elegant 18th Century townhouse is at the heart of the Georgian quarter of the market town of Frome - famed for its monthly artisan food market and the quirky shops of cobbled St Catherine's, both just a short stroll away.
Pemberley is a classic three-storey Georgian townhouse with beautiful sash windows, high ceilings, and wonderful fireplaces all perfectly balanced with an incredible contemporary make-over.
The bi-fold glass wall of the open plan kitchen/dining-room opens right up to the sheltered sun-trap garden which is fully enclosed. This stunning sociable inside-outside space is likely to be where you will spend most of your time but there is a separate living-room too with a wood-burning stove for cosy evenings. Four exceptional bedrooms – two with super king-sized beds – two glamorous bath/shower rooms on the first and second floors and a cloakroom downstairs, make this house a perfect base for a family or group of friends; for a full week exploring or a short break celebrating a special occasion.
The breathtaking city of Bath is just 14 miles away. The Cathedral City of Wells is 18 miles away and colourful Glastonbury with its iconic tor is 22 miles away. For an all-ages family outing Longleat Safari Park is just six miles away. The extraordinary internationally acclaimed Hauser & Wirth Gallery at Bruton is 11 miles away.
The surrounding countryside has much to offer too. From the woodland and lake at the National Trust gardens at Stourhead to the wilder high spaces of the Mendip Hills and of course Cheddar Gorge. Try the lesser known Ebbor Gorge for a challenging walk or Burrington Combe where white goats graze on the sheer sides. The unique Somerset Levels - a haven for wildlife and migrating birds - are criss-crossed with tracks and trails that run for miles, often as straight as an arrow, and ideal for cycling!
Frome is approximately two and a half hour's drive from London making north Somerset an excellent destination for an escape from city life. This grand period house offers home comforts and more, it is a really lovely place to come away to. One dog is welcome here.
