The location of attractions is intended only as a guide. Distances are 'as the crow flies'.
A traditional pub in the heart of Frome serving home-made food using fresh, local ingredients. Menu specialities include Tapas and Paella. Dine either in the restaurant or al-fresco when the weather allows.
A traditional family seaside resort beach. If you get bored of building sandcastles, there are plenty of attractions to keep the family happy including the historic pier, sealife centre, miniature railway, landtrain and amusement arcades as well as Weston's famous donkeys.
Butterflies, moths and bats. These are just a few of the guided walks available through Frome Town Council. Take a look at their website for further details.
Although a busy, thriving market town, Frome has oodles of charm and heritage. Narrow cobbled streets, a weekly market and more listed buildings than any other Somerset town give Frome a real sense of history. The town is perfectly placed to enjoy some of Somerset’s finest attractions, including the stunning Georgian city of Bath, Longleat Safari Park and Stourhead, the exquisite National Trust property.
World famous landscaped gardens with a magnificent lake as centrepiece. Certainly worth a visit to see the classical temples, mystical grottoes and rare, exotic trees. Why not combine a walk around the garden with a visit to the house, restaurant and shop with opening time information available on their Web site.
This is the most beautiful place you can imagine - the walk around the lake, dropping into the various buildings and grottoes, is breathtaking. All I can say is you really must visit.
A wonderful must in Dorset. Great gardens and interesting house. Well worth a visit.
Lots to see and do here - as well as the safari park, there is Longleat stately home and gardens, plus plenty of activities and attractions to entertain the family.
Fantastic for all ages
There is something here for every member of the family, and you can easily spend two days. The food outlets/shops etc are on the pricey side, but in fairness you do expect that at this type of attraction.
You won't see everything in one day
Grand house and attractions together with a drive through Safari park. Expensive to get in but once paid you have a passport for a week. You can even save up your Tesco clubcard points and get in for free! The house is interesting to look around and there are usually people in traditional dress doing role play with old cars and traditional old toys where your children can play. There is a maze and lot and lots of activites for children of all ages to do. The Safari park is brilliant, you get to see all your favourite animals in natural surroundings instead of in cages - but beware of the monkeys who will damage your car! A great day out and you won't see everything in one day.
White Row Farm provides the pork and free range eggs available in the farm shop along with potatoes, salad and vegetables. Other stock is locally produced to support local farmers and you will also find an award winning fish monger, gifts, garden and cafe. Listed in the 2011 Times "Britain's best farm shop" guide so it must be worth a visit!
Why not take a walk up this iconic, legendary Tor? Well worth the effort, you will have spectacular views across 3 counties. Dogs must be on a lead and there are no public conveniences.
It's well worth the initially steep climb up the tor for the amazing panoramic views from the summit - we parked in Glastonbury itself, walked up through the town and past the Chalice Well to tackle the steepest slope first, which meant an easier walk down the 'back' of the tor and a stroll through countryside to get back to the top of the town. Plenty of tea shops and cafes to refuel at when you get back!
In the centre of Frome, this arts centre offers galleries, shops, a cafe and a base for artist led workshops and events. Take a look at their Web site for a calendar of events and forthcoming exhibitions.
