The River Frome flows north to south through the parish and at the eastern edge of the village. Local agriculture includes the growing of hops and cider apples. Within the parish is a cider making company and a wine making business. Bishop's Frome gives its name to the Bishop's Frome Limestone which outcrops locally.[1] Parish population at the 2011 census was 834.[citation needed] Although the parish is in Herefordshire, its mail is handled in Worcester and its outward postcode is WR6.

St Mary's parish church at the south of the village is approached through a lychgate. The church contains a font over 700 years old, and a memorial depicting the carved figure of a knight in armour, sword in hand and a lion at his feet.
