FLOWERDEW'S, 6 MARKET SQUARE is in a prime town centre position facing the attractive market square. It is a period Grade II listed building with a spectacular half-timbered front, inside there is a wealth of exposed half-timbered walls and ceiling beams. The building, it is understood, dates back to the late 16th century and over the years has been a vinegar distillery, home of a surgeon and apothecary, the towns library from 1947 to 1979, the home, studio and business of a renowned local artist. For a number of years the business has been ‘Flowerdew's', a tearoom and gift shop.

The tearoom is a special area of exposed oak floor boards, exposed ceiling timbers and a feature dividing oak half-timbered frame with some wattle and three bow windows facing the market square. The rear courtyard style garden has decking and a southerly aspect being used as an extension to the tearoom (weather permitting). On the first and second floors there is a spacious three-bedroom apartment again with half-timbering to most rooms. There is mains gas fired central heating and lovely views to the rear to the countryside of the Frome Valley. The apartment has a staircase leading to a ground floor hall and its own access from the lower rear garden area with steps to a CAR PARKING SPACE in Sherford Street.
