Archangel lands in Frome and chooses Great Elm
Glorious bathrooms with the best of personal toiletries

Frome, arts hub of Somerset, has been visited by an angel or rather an archangel ... in the form of a fabulous new restaurant, bars and rooms. It's glam, hip, urban and simply gorgeous.

In the six bedrooms of Archangel Frome, and in the public restrooms, developer Simon Waterstone and his wife Louise have chosen Great Elm Physick Garden products to grace the new enterprise. We have provided Rosemary & Soapwort Hand Wash, Geranium & Soapwort body wash, and some snazzy new herbal bath bags and bath salts bags so that customers can soak up the stunning decor while relaxing in one of the fabuous zinc baths that sit so well in each room. We have also made some tiny Rosemary Hand Soaps and Rosemary Conditioning Shampoo for clients' rooms. Louise has been the creative force for the interior design in consultation with designer Niki Turner.

Simon has spent a fortune on the refurbishment of what used to be in the old coaching inn The Angel, King Street, to bring in cutting-edge architecture and design that is stunningly beautiful - but welcoming and comfortable too. Sam Wylde, who worked, inter alia, at the elegant establishments Babington House and At The Chapel, Bruton, is the charming and effective general manager. Head chef is John Melican, who worked in London for seven years, with culinary luminaries such as Simon Hopkinson at Bibendum and Richard Neat at Pied Terre. He said, I dont want to put the food on a pedestal. Simply, I hope it will be great fun.

The whole team is dedicated to local produce in every form: food, toiletries and talent (chef de partie Archie Swann has grown up in Great Elm).

Great Elm physicks are going down extremely well with the clientele, say Louise, Simon and Sam. And Great Elm's owner Liv O'Hanlon has (incognito, of course) quizzed a few customers herself. The verdict: 'Just fabulous... they smell gorgeous and they leave your skin feeling divine.' You can buy them here!
