A traditionally crafted development of elegant 2, 3 & 4 bed homes near the town centre of Frome in Somerset

The Old Nurseries offers a fine selection of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom properties from award winning Newland Homes, in the unique Somerset town of Frome with excellent connections to Bath, Shepton Mallet, Trowbridge and beyond. Located one mile to the west of Frome town centre, and just half a mile from the local Broadway shops, this gently sloping site was once home to garden nurseries. Surrounded by characterful 18C and 19C homes, many constructed using locally quarried forest marble natural stone and stonework dressings, meticulous attention has been paid to evoke an appealing streetscene. Through their proportions and detailing, homes at The Old Nurseries echo the demand for a mix of attractive detached and semi-detached family residencies. The same natural stone has been used for homes fronting Oakfield Road, whilst characteristic canted bay windows and familiar stone details to door and window surrounds are used throughout the development creating a unique sense of place. This timeless design avoids pastiche yet is imbued with a contemporary appeal through a thoughtful blend of carefully selected modern materials and details. Named by ‘The Sunday Times’ as ‘One of the Best Places to Live in Britain’, Frome is part of a popular growth area of East Somerset, including places like Castle Cary and Bruton. Commuting is easy – direct trains to Bath, Bristol and London plus good road links north and south

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Places to visit Naturally, this part of Somerset holds plenty of interesting places to visit. The Georgian splendor of Bath is within easy reach to the north, magnificent Stourhead House to the south and Stonehenge is only 23 miles east. The variety of Longleat House, Forest and Center Parcs is just 6 miles from Frome, but there are other more hidden gems on the heritage trail nearby.

Local Shopping

Super Sunday The town still has a reputation as market town with a monthly Sunday ‘super-market’ - more like a mini festival - selling the best of local food, drink, plants and produce. Linked to this is a thriving arts & crafts scene with many artists and craftspeople having taken the opportunity to establish themselves here. There are many individual workshops producing a range of crafts from jewellery to textiles and these complement specialist antiques, clothing and arts & crafts shops together with a number of galleries and arts venues.


Parks and schools If you want to get out and about, The Old Nurseries are just a 10-minute walk from one of the biggest open spaces in the town, Victoria Park – a formal park with bandstand, cafι and bowling club. There is no shortage of good quality schools in the area, all considered ‘good’ by Ofsted, including Oakfield Academy literally on your doorstep on Oakfield Road. There is also a Steiner Academy nearby as well as a number of good independents not too far away including the well-known Millfield, Wells Cathedral and King’s Bruton.
