The History of The Frogmill Cheltenham
The Frogmill Cheltenham is a noted wedding venue nestled at the heart of Andoversford in Gloucestershire. With its first mention dating back to the time of the Doomsday Book (1086), the venue preserves a profound sense of historical heritage. Its name, “The Frogmill,” was inspired by the historical presence of paper and corn mills that were established on the facility’s site during the 11th to 16th centuries. Interestingly, the term “Frog” is believed to have evolved from the Anglo-Saxon term ‘frig’ meaning ‘free’ – an embodiment of the peace and tranquillity the place possesses. Formerly an inn during the 17th century, it became widely-modernised in 2007, transitioning into a perfect blend of rustic beauty and modern elegance. The Frogmill has become an ideal wedding venue, offering spacious indoor and outdoor locations accompanied by luxury accommodation. In addition, the beautiful river Windrush flows by, offering a breathtaking landscape that enchants many couples. Today, The Frogmill Cheltenham resonates with a historical charm that provides a unique experience for couples and their guests, celebrating one of life’s most significant events amidst the venue’s fascinating history. This picturesque venue continues to enchant its visitors, embodying an irreproducible fusion of past and contemporary elegance.
