Discover a better work-life balance in Somerset

Somerset is ideally situated in the heart of the West Country, between the cities of Bristol and Bath, the Bristol Channel, and the Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire borders. It offers the perfect balance of traditional values and modern-day business success.

The main towns of Taunton, Yeovil and Bridgwater provide a diverse and affordable range of property, shops, sports and leisure activities. Meanwhile, Somerset’s vibrant market towns and tranquil, rural villages offer a wide choice of stunning locations for both businesses and families – with property at least 30% cheaper than in London.

Inspiring landscapes and delicious produce

Somerset is big and beautiful. It is the UK’s 12th largest county, boasting the Levels, the rolling hills of Exmoor, the Mendips and the Quantocks, as well as laying claim to 30km of glorious coastline.

The county’s traditional landscape and architectural heritage have always been an inspiration to those lucky enough to be living and working here. Delicious food and drink are also vital elements of traditional Somerset life and our 8,500 farmers and food producers make up the largest number in the UK. More
