Beautiful large garden flat, perfect for us and our 6 month old. Gina was a great host, very relaxed and accomodating. The place is very well equipped and beautifully furnished. Very close to the historic centre of Frome and lovely shops and cafes. We had a! great stay!

The Little Merchant was a perfect getaway. The flat was very well equipped with everything we needed and more. Lovely to be able to relax in front of the fire in the evening and to enjoy the garden in the day. The bedroom was large and the bed was very comfortable. Gina was an attentive host and very obliging. Frome is a lovely town with plenty of independent shops and cafes, with hills and narrow streets off-road parking is particularly welcome. Would highly recommend.

Gina was amazing. She was generous enough to pick me up and drop me back to the train station. Her flat is very clean, very comfortable and cozy. I will stay there again in a heart beat.

We received a warm welcome from Gina, the communication was good, the appartment is fantastic and stylish, we love old houses. The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden. The appartment provided everything we needed, there is no washing machine but that didn't bother us, Gina offered to do some washing if necessary, which was very kind and she gave us a lot of information about the area. Frome is a nice little town to go to, all amenities where close by, we specially loved the little independent shops. For drinks and Food we recommend the Archangel, Castello, the Artisan and the pub just up the road, the Griffin, they brew their own beer. We visited Bath, Stourhead house and garden, a walled garden in Wrington, Glastonbury and Wells, so plenty to do. We were lucky to have nice weather, a beautiful English summer, what more do you want? Thanks for a lovely holiday!

Gina was very warm and welcoming and obviously pours love into the Little Merchant. The flat was well kitted out and matched its description. We felt thoroughly nurtured, enjoying the glorious gardens and blissful night-time silence away from the city in particular. Located in the centre of Frome, among cobblestone streets and scented flowers, this is a special retreat.

Gina was there to greet us, and put us up in a spare room before the apartment was free the next day. We stayed for 6 nights. The large bed was very comfortable in a lovely large room. Separate lounge, kitchen and (thankfully) a shower in the bathroom. The Little Merchant is right in town, with many eating out options; incredibly handy to Catherine Hill for coffee and shopping. My husband was at the Bicycle Academy for the week which was only a 10-15 minute walk away.
