Clinkgate Farmhouse sits on the north side of Frome in that area of the old market town known as Clink. Clink as a contemporary term is associated with prison. As a place to stay Clinkgate Farmhouse is a million miles away from that! Legend has it that Clink described the sound of the coin as it fell into the toll collector's vessel. In reality Clink (actually clench) is Anglo-Saxon for hill.
 
You won't really notice the hill or indeed the farmland that once surrounded Clinkgate Farmhouse. What you will notice is the warm hospitality, the very comfortable bedrooms with their own bathrooms and the farmhouse breakfast lovingly cooked on the farmhouse Aga.
 
Clinkgate Farmhouse has two double bedrooms with one having an adjoining room with bunk beds making an ideal family room. All the rooms have their own TV's. The Lyveden room has an en-suite bathroom with shower and bath. The Windmill room has a wash basin in the well proportioned room and a private bathroom with bath and shower just along the picture lined hall.
 
Clinkgate Farmhouse is not one of those "fussy" B & B's. You won't find knitted loo roll holders or those annoying 'keep your feet off the bed' signs. You will find an abundance of art, a large mostly lawned garden, a place to park your car off the road, an open fireplace and woodburner and a large Longleat Oak table to eat your breakfast from. First and foremost Clinkgate Farmhouse is a happy lived-in home along with Minnie-the-Moocha, the resident Jack Russell, who gets on with everybody.

Frome has much to offer with two theatres, some Mary Portas approved interesting shopping, a licensed cinema and some quirky twists and turns and apart from being a great stop off on the way to the seaside, it sits alongside the Longleat Estate, is only 13 miles South from Bath, has Babington House even nearer and is an hour and a half from London via the M3, the A303 and Stonehenge. Stourhead, Avebury, Wells, Bradford-on-Avon and Glastonbury are all nearby. Frome has a railway station but Bath or Westbury (8 miles away) have more direct links to the places that matter. Bristol Airport is an hour away and Portsmouth is about the same. 
 
Wellow Trekking Centre is close by and the area is great for shooting and fishing with Salisbury Plain and the Wyle Valley not far away. Clinkgate Farmhouse has a secure gunsafe.
 
Wedding venues abound with suitable setups at Orchardleigh, Horningsham, Priston Mill and lots of others all within spitting distance. 
 
Simply put Clinkgate Farmhouse should offer you all the home from home comforts you'd expect.
