Consider a move to Midsomer Norton

People looking to get away from busy city life may consider looking at property for sale in Midsomer Norton.

This lovely Somerset town can be found at the foot of the Mendip Hills and is perfect for both families and couples wanting to settle in to a more sedate pace of life.

Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the local area is ideal for those who enjoy the outdoors and a spot of fresh air.

There is also a national centre for caving that is popular with locals, walkers, climbers and tourists, as well as the Silver Street Local Nature Reserve, which boasts some of the UK's most interesting flora and fauna.

However, there is still the chance to enjoy the benefits of the nearby cities of Bath and Bristol. Both are within a commutable distance and offer a whole host of facilities and activities, including theatres, cinemas, shopping, restaurants and bars.

The town's market hall is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and following consultation with local residents it is set to provide a new hall for public events and a community cafe.

One of the key highlights of the Midsomer Norton events calendar is the West Country Carnival. Held every year in November, it is a must for local residents to get involved with. The procession is held on the main Fosseway through Westfield and avoids the main high street because some of the floats are too large to fit!

Families relocating to Midsomer Norton will also be able to pick from a number of good local schools, such as Norton Hill School, whose exam results are regularly in the top five per cent nationally.

Fitness fanatics will also enjoy the local South Wansdyke Leisure Centre. It has good facilities, including a swimming pool and there are also Zumba classes on offer to those who enjoy something a little different.

Sporting fans will also be able to spend their spare time either watching - or playing - in the number of football and cricket teams that are based in the area.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801699915-ADNFCR
