Beautiful old house near Bath, England for short breaks or longer stays

This beautiful, tranquil house was built around 1800 near the centre of Frome, a historic town of about 25,000 inhabitants with more listed heritage buildings than anywhere else in Somerset. Frome was recently featured in the NY Times as a place to visit and was described in the London Times as one of the best places in Britain to live and "a mecca for artists and artisans". The house is heritage-listed for its architectural significance and is full of art, well designed furniture and books, with original features such as flagstone and oak floors, fireplaces, sash windows and shutters. There is a log burner. The garden is south facing, sheltered and a suntrap in summer.
Frome is a friendly town with a strong creative community, including several renowned musicians who can often be found playing locally. Its many attractions include a cinema, theatres, galleries, music venues, good cafes and boutiques (Catherine Hill, two minutes' walk away, is a magnet for buyers of fashion and vintage). There are two weekly markets as well as the monthly St Catherine's street fair. Frome is close to Bath, Bristol, Stonehenge and Salisbury with good rail links (including to London, Wales and the Dorset coast) and bus services. Somerset is a gorgeous county with great scenery and beautiful coastline, and many attractions such as Bath, Glastonbury and Wells.
I am a British ex-teacher and graphic designer.  I would be interested in exchanges to any interesting places, anywhere in the world.
