    Somerset is a large county with Taunton as its county town, a jurassic coast, Exmoor and areas of outstanding natural beauty for walks, riding, cycling etc. Cricket features highly, there is a great museum, day trips to Bath, and National Trust properties at Barrington Court, Montecute House, Dunster Castle as well as Tyntesfield not far. Shopping is good, but Exeter is only 40 mins away (John Lewis just opened!). We had a fun day trip to Butlins in Minehead with a great splash centre and free fairground rides. It takes 2 hours by train to London and although we have lived here 8 years, there are still places left to explore.



    some of those places left to explore inc; Glastonbury town and a walk up to “the tor”. Clarks village at street. Fossel hunting at charmouth and along the jurassic coast mentioned above. Cribbs causeway shopping center. Bristol museum and the “@Bristol center including the imax theratre and cafe/returants around the docks and the ss great britain. etc



    If somerset is bringing out the latent hippy in you, there are a ton of things going on this summer where you and the kids can let your hair down and run barefoot about eating locally sourced food, quaffing cider made down the road, and meeting a broadest cross section of people possible! This weekend, 9th June, I recommend the Green Fair and Sythe competition at Thorney Lakes. Here is link to the flyer. If you are in a festival mood, there is camping alongside the fair.

    See you there!!



    Somerset is rapidly moving on from the hippy, cider, cheese image with many household names manufactured. Probably the most important message is that connectivity is good and the costs associated with living, or running a business are substantially less than some areas of the UK will give you a good insight as to what is here.
