New Homes in Somerset

Live the life

Located in South West England and referred to by the Saxons as the ‘land of the summer people’, Somerset has something for everyone.

Buying a new home in Somerset provides coastal scenery, lively market towns, a national park and a rich history. It also has great transport links connecting it to the rest of the country.

Things to see and do

The national park of Exmoor and no less than three areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty will all be on your doorstep when you move here.

Exmoor is made up of ancient woodlands, mountains, valleys and lovely waterfalls. Wildlife lovers will enjoy spotting Exmoor ponies, bats and wild red deer. Designated as Europe’s first Dark Skies reserve, you’ll be able to pick out constellations and maybe even spot a shooting star here.

The Cheddar Gorge is another great spot. As Britain’s largest gorge, it rises up 450ft and was created by melted Ice Age waters over millions of years. Cox’s Cave is another highlight, where you can venture deep underground and discover a crystalline grotto with calcite sculptures, fountains and pools.

The city of Bath in Somerset provides lovely architecture to explore, along with the ancient Roman baths. Bathe in the city’s warm spa waters or enjoy shopping in its boutiques. Several museums will keep history fans busy, and there are a great selection of restaurants and bars to choose from.

Education

There are several schools available in the area, giving families plenty of choice. The University of Bath, and Bath Spa University, are two choices for those hoping to study at degree level.

Transport Links

Somerset can be easily reached by road, rail and air.

Somerset is entered along the M5 from London or the Midlands, by the M4 or A4 into Bath or the A38 through Bristol. The A361 bisects the county from Frome to Tiverton, or the A37, which bisects it from Bristol to Yeovil. You can also enter from the A303 from London, the A30 through Yeovil, or the A39 of Exmoor. Taunton is just 165 miles from London and 132 miles from Birmingham.

There are several choices for rail travel into the county. You can travel in either through Bath, Bristol and Weston-super-Mare to Taunton, or from London through Frome, Bruton and Castle Cary.

For those travelling from further afield, the nearest airport to Somerset is Bristol (49 minutes), located on the A38. Exeter airport (41 minutes) is another choice.
