The Merchants House

This Boutique B&B and Apartment Suite is situated right in the heart of the old market town of Frome which flourished at the time the house was built in the 1690’s when the wool trade was the bedrock of wealth here.

This classic Queen Anne house transports you back centuries with its elm beamed kitchen ceiling, original exposed stone walls and flagstone floor through which a stream runs. Juxtaposed with this is the contemporary comfort of the light decor, ornate mirrors and indulgent bathing either in the double ended cast iron bath tub of the Lavender room or the limestone wet room of the Sunflower room giving a touch of hotel style glamour. Lovely touches include local organic lavender bathing products, fluffy and waffle dressing gowns, candles and fresh cut flowers.
