  • "This was the perfect space for a weekend gathering of 12."

    The main room is such a sociable, well-equipped space. The house is stylishly decorated and every room is a great size with comfy beds. The only drawback is that one of the two bathrooms is an en-suite, meaning people walk through this bedroom to use it or ten people share a bathroom. Not too much of an issue for a weekend though.

  • "10 out of 10 we all loved every minute of our stay!"

    ! We had everything we needed and more and the bottle of wine was a lovely touch, thank you. If I had to suggest 1 thing, it would be the hot tub… by Sunday morning it was quite cloudy and smelly, so became off putting. If there was a way a top up of chemicals could be added mid stay, I think that would make the experience more enjoyable as at the end of the day 9 people in a hot tub is bound to off balance the chemicals. I also think a future upgrade of the hot tub would be something to look into as you offer a 12 person stay with a small tub. Otherwise can’t wait to book again!!

    Hi Scarlett, thanks for the feedback and awesome that you had such a great stay. Often we have no idea if the tub is getting lots of use or not at all, so it's a balance between us visiting the property to top up chemicals and invading your private stay. Our neighbours hold the chemicals for us and are more than happy to pop some in if needed. Next time you stay just ping me a text and I'll send them round. Look forward to welcoming you again some day. Kind regards Marcus. Property Owner

  • "The villa was well looked after, clean and with several benefits."

    However there was a lack of toilet facilities. On the ground floor there were two double bedrooms. One of these was occupied by an 87 year old lady who was unable to climb the stairs. There was only a toilet on the ground floor. Nowhere to wash oneself properly, or shower. This was situated within the boot room. Turning this into a shower room could have provided facilities for both downstairs double rooms. This sadly let the whole villa down.

    Hi Raymond, thanks for your feedback, it's important that we get things right for our guests and I'm sorry if the layout of the house was not made clear enough in the description. We will look at altering some wording to hopefully make this clearer for future visitors. Kind regards, Marcus Property Owner

    Really well-equipped and homely. Very spacious kitchen and living area so perfect for a big family or group of friends. Great location for visiting Frome and surrounding area. Lovely big garden too and tons of parking. Only downside really is only 2 bathrooms and only a toilet on ground floor level.

    Hi Carol, thanks for the great feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards, Marcus. Property Owner

    The house is spacious and very comfortable and every need was catered for. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio and huge garden and the children loved the swing, trampoline and football goal and everyone loved the hot tub. We would thoroughly recommend Vallis Oak Villa.

    Thanks Jenny, we love positive feedback, especially knowing you had a great family gathering. Hopefully we'll be able to welcome you back another sometime. Thanks Property Owner

    The house is fantastic and as others have said, the pictures don’t do it justice! The house was well-located, very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked and there’s also a downstairs WC, utility room and small basement which has bean bags and a TV. There’s a sonos system, games, towels for the hot tub and an outdoor seating area too. We would definitely recommend this property! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

    Pure Luxury. Everything we needed was there, beds sooo comfortable. Gardens were lovely, as was the hot tub(very clean). The owner was in touch and happy to be contacted if we needed. They were very accommodating. Would highly recommend this property and frome. Lovely Sunday roast in the archangel (if you’re not in a rush as service a bit slow). Amazing shops.

  • "Our party of eight had a fantastic weekend stay and we highly recommend the property."

    It’s very easy to find, with a pretty drive and tons of parking space. The house is lovely, very private yet only a short walk into Frome, and superbly equipped. The main open plan living area is fantastic, comfortable sofas, cosy underfloor heating, a huge dining table and a great kitchen. All of the bedrooms are large, comfortable and have high quality bedding. We made use of several of the restaurants close by, the Royal Bengal Indian just 2 minutes away, Bistro Lotte for lunch on a busy Saturday and the Old Bath Arms for Sunday roasts, all were very good. Any areas for improvement, just a couple of things, there is only a family bathroom plus an on-suite in the main bedroom (there is a downstairs cloakroom also) so for a 6 bedroom house it could do with an extra bath or shower room…and the temperature varied across the house, upstairs bedrooms hot, downstairs bedrooms cold. But these are small things and overall we were incredibly happy with the house, it’s brilliant.

    Thanks for the positive feedback Shaun and we’re glad you enjoyed your stay. I’ll get the radiators adjusted downstairs to improve the temp for those bedrooms. Thanks. Property Owner
