A rich history and an impressive location attract residents to Bridgwater

Lying close to the north Somerset coast is the market town of Bridgwater. With its bustling town centre and convenient location it's no wonder that so many people are on the hunt for property for sale in Bridgwater

Set in amongst the beautiful Somerset countryside, which includes the Mendips and the Quantocks, while also including many retail and industrial opportunities and being close to Bristol, Bridgwater has it all. The town centre itself is intersected by the River Parrett and requires a short stroll across the town's bridge to cross it. 

Within the town there are a variety of shopping facilities ranging from large, high street retailers to small, independent outlets. Bridgwater is, without doubt, one of the main players in Somerset's industry alongside Bristol and Taunton. The region is perhaps more reliant on the farming and agricultural industries for income and revenue. 

Part of the reason for its high standing within Somerset is its location. Bridgwater is located just off the M5 which meanders down towards Exeter and also up north to the Midlands and Birmingham. This strong location is ideal for businesses to set up while the town is also well placed for travel to some of the more idyllic spots within Somerset. The northern coast has a number of small towns and seaside villages worth visiting. 

Bridgwater train station offers residents the chance to spread their wings whether it be for business or pleasure, being well-located on the Bristol to Exeter line. A number of in-demand towns are dotted along the line including Taunton and Weston-super-Mare. 

The town has a fascinating history also, having been host to some famous battles and rebellions. Bridgwater's museums and cultural buildings will offer residents the chance to learn more about their town's past.

All in all, Bridgwater is one of the big players within Somerset and as such it is not hard to see why so many look to settle down there. ADNFCR-1222-ID-800760548-ADNFCR
