Families with young children will also be pleased with the range of education facilities on offer and there is a mix of state secondary schools, such as The Castle School, and co-educational independents Queen's College and Taunton School.

Adult learners and older students will also be able to enjoy courses run by the nearby Somerset College of Arts and Technology, which is linked to the University of Plymouth.

There is also a wide choice of sporting activities on offer to residents, including the chance to watch Somerset County Cricket Club play their home matches at Taunton's County Ground, while there are also football, rugby league, basketball and volleyball clubs in addition to Taunton Racecourse.

This spring will see the £1.2 million revamp of Taunton's public swimming pool completed and visitors will be able to enjoy a new high-tech health suite, which will include a sauna and steam room.

Taunton is also close to the M5, so those working in Bristol can easily commute to the office on a regular basis. They also have the option of a frequent rail link to a number of key locations.
