Angel News - “Here I have much more time to think and therefore I get things done quicker. When I was in London I acted quickly all the time but was not as efficient.”

Ariel Motor Company - “We have slowly grown over the years and have never had a problem in finding skilled labour, even though we are incredibly picky about who we employ.”

Autoday - "People work better in a better environment. Somerset’s unique blend of country, coast and historic towns provides significant advantages to the achievement of a healthy work/life balance.”

Bay Tree Food Company - “Somerset is very business-focused and has a great diversity of small businesses. The people are generally friendly and helpful. The potential for business space at a reasonable price is good so you can spend more money on your business.”

Corbin O'Grady - “The availability of broadband means we have all the benefits of a rural lifestyle whilst being able to stay totally in touch with the marketplace.”

Cuddledry - “At Cuddledry we have shown that it is perfectly feasible to quickly grow an international business whilst living a lovely rural and healthy lifestyle.” 

Cup of Tea - “Somerset offers excellent availability of great staff, realistically priced property, good communications with fast links to London and the South East and a wonderful lifestyle.”

Evert & Veronique Veltink - “We have been impressed with the speed and efficiency of the broadband in the area. I also found the airport links to be fantastic, which is essential for a business that has close ties with Europe.”

Filbert's Fine Foods - “We are 35 minutes from the M5, we’re 45 minutes from the M4, 40 minutes from Bristol airport and 15 minutes from Castle Cary, which means I can be in London Paddington in under 2 hours. It’s a great place to be, you can get anywhere in the country quickly and easily."

Frances George - “It’s a really lovely location and there’s much more of a community and ‘local feel’ here compared to being in a larger city. Everyone seems to have a network of people they can put you in touch with and everyone wants to help, which I have found incredibly helpful in terms of developing my business.”

Gooch & Housego - “People are central to our success. We are fortunate to have a skilled local workforce and the heritage of seventy years of specialist manufacturing in Ilminster gives us an advantage which cannot be overstated. Moreover it’s a beautiful part of the world and a good place to do business.”

Hauser & Wirth - "Somerset is an inspiring place to work and there are many thriving locally based businesses, so there is a real sense of community and of people wanting to help one another."
