Commercial Property Opportunities

Finding suitable premises for your business is one of the hardest tasks facing an entrepreneur wishing to relocate, but Somerset provides a host of commercial property options supported by a professional and efficient network of agents.

Somerset is home to top-quality business parks and industrial estates off motorways and in its market towns, with a further 150 hectares of employment land to be allocated through the South West Regional Spatial Strategy (2008).

There are a variety of business development sites across Somerset –

  • Taunton Deane – Firepool and Blackbrook Business Park, in Taunton; Chelston Business Park, Wellington
  • Sedgemoor – Express Park and J24 Rural Business Centre, in Bridgwater; ex-BAE Site, Puriton
  • Mendip – Commerce Park, Frome; Moorlands Enterprise Park, Glastonbury; Gate Lane, Wells
  • South Somerset – Lufton and Bunford, both in Yeovil
  • West Somerset - Roughmoor, Williton; Minehead and Dulverton

Other local authority funded commercial opportunities can be found within Project Taunton, Yeovil Vision and The Yeovil Innovation Centre

Travel is quick and convenient, as our Business Parks and Industrial Estates are in key locations off all five motorway junctions as well as the A303 at Wincanton, Yeovil & Ilminster. In addition, Somerset has a network of unique, high-quality rural business developments, often in the grounds of historic farms, such as Bowdens Farm, Hambridge; Upton Bridge, Long Sutton; Eaglewood, Dillington – and many more.

Bridgwater Gateway

The Bridgwater Gateway site comprises 37.8 ha of land to the south of Bridgwater which although currently undeveloped, has seen considerable changes to the surrounding areas over the last few years including the development of Stockmoor Village, the Regional Rural Business Centre (RRBC) and the Wiseman Dairy Site. In this regard, the site represents a logical development opportunity and can be seen as the ‘final piece of the jigsaw’ in South Bridgwater.  Visit  Contact Phil Wade:  m: 07714 008581

Abbey Manor is one of the leading private property companies in Southern England with a £200 million development pipeline stretching from Cornwall to Essex. The company has associated property investment, business centre & conferencing and waste management business interests.

The Abbey Manor history can be traced back to 1870 with the establishment of Somerset builder E.R. Bartlett. The company incorporated in 1913 and grew steadily as a regional building contractor for the next fifty years. In the 1960s, the company shifted its focus to property development. This has remained the core business activity to this day.

As property developers, not traders, Abbey Manor undertakes the full development process from blank sheet of paper to completed building with a team of project, development and construction managers. The company produces results by focusing development activities through effective project and financial management and building long-term relationships with our customers and partners.

To date, Abbey Manor has completed some 7 million sq.ft of commercial and residential development. A cornerstone of this activity has been an extensive portfolio of both bespoke design and build and speculative employment land use based development projects.
