Watch the otters, ducks, herons and birdlife from the river at this lovely holiday property, set in a peaceful location.

These properties are set in a small cluster of houses along a no-through road, just over 1 mile from the heart of Frome, a bustling market town with weekly markets and an ever-growing popular monthly market which takes over the town centre. There are cobbled, pedestrianised streets with rivulets running down, and an array of cafés, individual shops, leisure and entertainment. Herons’ Weir (ref EXY) and adjoining Dippers’ Folly (ref EXZ) have been converted from an old industrial workshop building and have been fitted out to a high standard with oak doors and furniture, and marble floors with underfloor heating on the ground floor. Each bedroom has its own bathroom or shower room, some of which are en-suite. The building sits next to the River Mells facing Jeffries Mill sluice and weir. Both cottages have riverside sitting areas from which to relax with a drink and enjoy the wildlife and ever changing river setting - there are always plenty of birds and you may be lucky enough to see the heron, dippers, kingfisher, fish jumping and otters. There are many picturesque villages within the region, offering great country and riverside walks, with a welcoming pub at the end. The area makes an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding attractions, including Stonehenge, Longleat House, Safari Park and Gardens, Wells Cathedral and Bishops Palace, the spiritual town of Glastonbury with its abbey and tor, the amazing Cheddar Gorge, the designer outlet village at Street, a number of National Trust properties and the Roman city of Bath, with its Georgian buildings, sweeping crescents, spa baths and lively culture. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    Herons Weir was a beautiful, high standard finish, well equipped, spotless cottage. In a private tranquil location. We enjoyed our days out then coming back to eat on the terrace whilst watching the wildlife. The owner has certainly thought this through.

    Would not hesitate to stay here again, beautiful spacious cottage with fantastic views over the weir. Lovely kitchen with great equipment. Toilet and shower room downstairs is very handy and 3 bathrooms upstairs means no problems with waiting. Would love to stay and enjoy outside space more in the summer months
