By Car

Opening PlaqueLeave Frome by the A362 heading northwest to Radstock. After roughly half a mile outside the built-up area, turn left, onto the road signposted “Hapsford, Great Elm, and Mells”. Around 1 1/2 miles down this road you will reach the centre of Great Elm; you will pass 2 signs welcoming you (we really are that friendly!)

Coming to the centre of the village, there is a large tree on a grassed area – turn left here (Elm Lane). Proceed down the sharp hill and Jackdaws is on the left just before the river bridge.

Please note that if you are using a SatNav, it may only bring you to the centre of the village.


A frequent service of mainline express trains operate to Bristol, Bath and Westbury, where you can change for connecting services to Frome. For more specific information and times visit the National Rail Website.

Taxis are available from Frome Station for the short journey to Jackdaws or your B&B (3 miles – around £10). You will find more regular train services to and from Westbury (10 miles – around £25 taxi fare) or Bath Spa (15 miles) rather than Frome, especially on Sundays.


We are situated on National Cycle Network route 24. For more information visit the Sustrans website.
Be warned – there are several hills on this route!
