UNIT J8, JENSON COURT, JENSON AVENUE, COMMERCE PARK, FROME

Martial arts facility relocates in Frome

The only full time martial art training facility in Frome has relocated to a new base on one of Somerset’s most popular business parks.

Gracie Barra Frome has taken space at the town’s Commerce Park in a deal brokered by property consultancy Myddelton & Major.

The move to the 1,875 sq ft (174.2 sq m) Unit J8 at Jenson Court comes after nearly two years of running classes from The Train Station Gym.

Quoting rent for the unit on the first phase of the recently completed 21-unit Jenson Court development was £11,750 per annum and Gracie Barra Frome has agreed a six-year lease.

Myddelton & Major Surveyor Gary Mead said: “I was pleased to facilitate this relocation which gives the martial arts school a larger training area, including 120 sq m of mat space, plus changing rooms, a waiting area and a functional training space. 

“Gracie Barra Frome, the only full time martial art training facility in Frome, is set to offer classes seven days a week by the end of 2019 once on-site building work is finished. Regular classes are running as usual during this time.

“The school is run by Somerset-born Callum Swift, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Brown belt who has been training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu exclusively since 2012 and made the move to become a full time athlete and school owner in autumn 2017. He is a two- time British Jiu-Jitsu Open Championship finalist.  He has recently earned triple gold medals at ES Events European Championships held earlier this month, alongside many members who also medalled.  They have already seen a vast improvement in competition success since moving to their new facility and can attribute this to their ability to run more classes.”

Jenson Court, the latest development at popular and growing Commerce Park, is creating new jobs as the demand for high-quality industrial space regionally from new and expanding companies continues to grow.

The strategically-located park offers high specification industrial/warehouse units and strong demand continues with three units now let, one under offer and just three remaining.”

Frome is situated in a strategic location on the Somerset/Wiltshire border with excellent road and rail access to major networks.

The M4 is accessed via the A36 and Frome station offers direct mainline services. Bristol Airport is approximately 30 miles away.

Commerce Park is located on the Frome bypass, midway between the M4, M5 and A303 corridors close to the junction of the A36 and A361.

It is approximately 14 miles south of Bath and 13 miles from the A303 and is situated on the A361 (Frome by-pass), approximately two miles south of the A36/A361 junction.

Other established businesses at Commerce Park include Screwfix, Storagebase, Cox & Cox and Euro Car Parts. Facilities include a Premier Inn Hotel and Public House. There is also a petrol filling station with convenience store.

Myddelton & Major was named the most active agency in Wiltshire in 2018 for the seventh year running by Estates Gazette, the weekly and online magazine of the UK commercial property industry.
