Taunton: Find something for everyone in Somerset

Taunton: Find something for everyone in Somerset

When it comes to buying a new house, some people will be on the lookout for specifics such as good transport or a fantastic educational system. 

However, for most of us, finding something that offers us the best of everything can be the best way to find a home where we can see ourselves settling for years to come.

Few places across England will offer you this better than when you head out to see the property for sale in Taunton.

The Somerset town is the ideal place for a family to settle down. With only just over 60,000 people living there, you will be assured that it will never be too noisy or busy, allowing you to raise the family in a wonderful setting.

There is also simply something for everyone in the town, and it has it all under one proverbial roof.

For example, when it comes to shopping, you will not want to have to travel way out of town just to get some retail therapy.

Thankfully you will not need to if you live in Taunton, with Hankridge Farm retail park near to the M5 motorway, The County Walk indoor shopping complex, or the Orchard on the site of the old town market, and known locally as "The Pig Market" all nearby.

It will also be important when moving to any town that you can find things to do locally. Having to drive to find fun and activities is no one's idea of fun when you're not on holiday.

In Taunton, there are things such as a number of parks - including Vivary Park, Goodlands Park and Victoria Park. Here, you will find plenty of activities including mini-golf, tennis courts, children's playgrounds and par-63 18-hole golf course. These make for great family days out.

There are also a number of community-based events in the town such as the Taunton Flower Show, and excellent facilities such as the nearby Musgrove Park Hospital, and a wide number of schools for parents to choose from so they know they are making the right decision to meet the needs of their children.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801638614-ADNFCR
