Retire to Midsomer Norton

Retire to Midsomer Norton

Midsomer Norton could be the perfect place for anyone who is looking to settle down to enjoy their retirement.

Situated close to the Mendip hills, the town is a popular commuter settlement for people who live and work in surrounding areas such as Wells and Bath.

Retirees who buy property for sale in Midsomer Norton can therefore enjoy easy access to neighbouring towns and cities, while living in a charming and historic location that boasts loads of great amenities and historic buildings.

Midsomer Norton had established itself as a mining settlement in the 20th century and reminders of its coal industry heritage can still be seen today.

The town also boasts its own shopping centre, which can be a convenient option for anyone who does not want to head out into Bath, Wells or further afield to Bristol to pick up a few bits and pieces.

Residents can also enjoy a good night out in Midsomer Norton, as there are bars, places to eat and even the chance to see some live music.

There are also schools and places of worship, so retirees living in the area and younger families alike should find just about everything they need in close proximity.

Another landmark that should appeal to people of all ages is the old railway station, a reminder of when the town was included on the Somerset and Dorset Railway until the 1960s.

The station is still standing and is currently undergoing restoration work, which could lead to vintage steam trains eventually running along part of the remaining line.

While this could be some way off, it is a reminder of how Midsomer Norton is a place that is keen to embrace its past and bring it firmly into the present.

As a result, it could be the perfect place for older people who want to settle down in a spot that evokes memories of times gone by without giving up the luxuries they have become accustomed to in the 21st century.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801743035-ADNFCR
