Beckington is a proud Somerset village, just outside of Frome, within easy reach of both Bath and Bristol. Mentioned in the Doomsday Book, this historic village still enjoys life at a slower, friendlier pace, creating a strong sense of community and belonging for its thousand or so residents.
Enjoy a match at one of the country’s oldest surviving cricket clubs, join the whole community, young and old, for the annual Village Day and the hilarious annual Music Hall production, or simply enjoy a friendly drink in one of the fine local hostelries. Whatever you are looking for in traditional village life, you’ll find it right here in Beckington.
Yet with the A36 right on your doorstep, and regular trains from nearby Frome or Trowbridge, you’ll never feel out of the way or isolated, giving you the very best of both worlds, just like the stunning range of two, three, four and five bedroom Heritage Collection homes we’re building here.

TransportThe village has enjoyed a quiet life since the A36 was diverted around it in the late 80s, but this major route still remains just a few minutes away from the village. Frome lies just 3 miles to the south, with Trowbridge just 6 miles to the north. Further afield, Bath is around 12 miles away, with Bristol within easy commuting distance at just 25 miles. The M4 is around 20 miles away, with the M5 around 39 miles. The nearest rail station is Frome, but you can cut around 20 minutes off the journey time to Bristol by catching the train from Trowbridge instead. Bristol to London takes just 1hr 30mins by train, making the total journey time from Trowbridge around 1hr 50mins, if you time your connections right. Alternatively Westbury, 8 mile away, has a direct service to London and trains to Salisbury, Southampton and Portsmouth. Bristol Airport offers a wide range of flights across the UK and Europe for both business and pleasure.
