Live the Taunton life


Set into beautiful Somerset countryside yet still offering all the benefits of a major town, buying a new home in Taunton could be the gateway to a wonderful new way of life. Whether you’re local to the area or moving here for the first time, don’t miss offers such as our Movemaker scheme where we’ll pay the estate agent fees involved with selling your current home. 


Things to see and do in Taunton

You can delve into the region’s rich history with a trip to the Museum of Somerset, set in a majestic 12th-century castle. Sports fans will enjoy a visit to Somerset Cricket Museum or catching a game at the County Ground. Kids can have fun at the play area in French Weir Park, and dogs can tear around Longrun Meadow. 

Local beauty spots include Trull Waterfall, Thurlbear Wood and Cothelstone Hill, where you can soak up the views after hiking to the summit. From Hestercombe House to Vivary Park, you can head north to the Quantock Hills and south to the Blackdown Hills when you’re not taking advantage of all the attractions in the town centre. 


There are some excellent local schools to choose between, with Tull CofE on the southern edge of town ranked as one of the best primaries in Somerset. It’s outstanding according to Ofsted, while the central Parkfield Primary and Bishop Henderson CofE are further good options. 

If your children are a little older, the centrally located Castle School is one of Somerset’s top secondaries. Heathfield Community School, meanwhile, is on the north-western outskirts of town and ranked as one of the best sixth form colleges in the whole country. Both schools are classed as outstanding by Ofsted. 

Taunton transport links

As well as bus, coach, train and park and ride services, there’s an array of local schemes which aim to get people choosing greener forms of travel, namely though walking and cycling clubs and initiatives. If you do need to drive, the M5 motorway conveniently passes to the south and east of Taunton, providing you with direct access to Exeter in the south and Bristol to the north. 

The Taunton property scene

Considering its rural location within the Somerset countryside, Taunton has a very strong property market. Prices have been rising faster than the UK average in recent years, so now is the time to snap up a 2, 3 or even 4 bedroom home which opens up to lovely natural scenery on the north-western outskirts of town. 

When you call up to enquire, make sure you ask your adviser whether you can take advantage of an offer such as our Part Exchange scheme, which could save you a lot of money on your purchase.
