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.
Fun, sun and entertainment. Home to numerous events throughout the year, Weston-Super-Mare has a lively beach where there is always something going on. Soak up the sunshine on the beach or try your hand at a new activity. There are plenty of shops, cafes and facilities all along the huge seafront, as well as lots of amusements and arcades. Also known as Weston-Super-Mud, the beach has the second highest tidal range in the world, so no walking out onto the mud!
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.
Visit the world-famous gardens at Stourhead and sit amongst tranquil scenes. Described as ‘a living work of art’, the gardens lead visitors on a breath-taking journey. Spend a while in the 18th Century Palladian villa and Hoare family home, before wending your way around the grounds, falling in love with the beautifully thought out landscapes and classical architecture.
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.
Listen to lions roar and watch giraffes tower over the landscapes. At Longleat Safari Park little kids and big kids alike will fall under the magical spell of the wild. Go on a jungle cruise then hop over to Penguin Island before hedging your bets in the biggest hedge maze in Britain. A wonderful day of adventure awaits.
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.
