Situated in southwest England, Somerset has everything you need in a county. As well as coastlines, rich with fossils and wildlife, there is a wealth of heritage to explore, rolling English countryside, and breathtaking scenery of outstanding natural beauty.
Somerset is the home of the famous Bath Spa, which is steeped in history and Somerset also takes in the stunning Exmoor National Park.
Exmoor is natural beauty of the the highest order, bursting with wildlife including the Exmoor pony and wild red deer. Exmoor is rich in hidden haunts, deep valleys, ancient oak woodland, England’s highest sea-cliffs, sparkling rivers and waterfalls. Its landscapes and seascapes are dotted with medieval towns, villages, harbours and resorts full of character and timeless charm.
Due to Somerset’s size, it is far from being the most highly populated meaning there are vast expanses of open, unspoilt spaces waiting to be explored. Described by the ancient Welsh Celts and the Saxons as the ‘Land of the Summer People’, Somerset really is a county of captivating contrasts.
First time visitors are always surprised at the undisturbed tranquillity of its heather-clad moorlands, not to mention a breathtaking coastline of plunging cliffs and sheltered bays.
Nestling on the West Somerset / North Devon border, it is a remarkable landscape that makes a natural choice for living.
