Standard town around, with easy cheap parking. However Catherine hill was lovely, gorgeous little independent stores and coffee shops. Nothing seems to open and get buzzy until 11am. Very cute will definitely visit again if in the area again.

A lovely street full of a wide range of interesting shops. The hill is steep and cobbled, so be careful if it's wet!

It is a hill and it is cobbled bit it's is worth the walk. One of Frome old streets with a new character.

A hidden gem not noticeable as you drive through Frome, but climb up from Stoney Street to the top of Catherine Hill and the rewards are great. Artisan shops and cafes, restored cobbled street and quaint houses, Catherine Hill is well worth exploring

We had to ask for directions as there is a small cobbled street near to the monument that we thought was Catherine Hill. Situated a few minutes away,this lovely little Hill has bags of character and the cobbles add to this. Very steep and full...More

It’s a very steep walk up St. Catherine’s but brace yourself and make the effort because it’s certainly worth it for the lovely variety of independent shops and cafes.

That is a tricky question to answer as a lot of the shops are individually owned and each owner probably has a different point of view. It also depends on the size of the dog... You would always leave your dog outside as it... More

A few are open on a Sunday however most are open when the independent markets are running on the first Sunday of the month.
