This is a warm and welcoming historic cottage which was built in 1706 by the Sheppard family of Frome, who were prominent local weavers. The cottage is steeped in history and has a fabulous sitting room with flagstone floor and morso woodburning stove. Original elm floorboards, heavyweight beams and views down over Frome make this cottage a little gem. It sleeps up to four guests in two bedrooms - one with double bed and one with twin beds.
