Why Somerset?

Quality Lifestyle

Somerset is a place where life is perfectly balanced. People are attracted here because of our world-class environment and growing career opportunities.

The rise in work-from-home, hybrid working and flexible commuting makes quality of place more important than ever. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect place for the optimum work-life balance than Somerset.

Beautiful stretches of sandy coastline, caves, moors, the unique Somerset Levels, get-away-from-it-all areas of outstanding natural beauty, cool-list towns, internationally renowned art galleries and great food and our world-famous cider.

Somerset attracts millions of visitors each year. With major developments and new career opportunities, it is increasingly viewed as a great place to relocate to.

With thriving market towns like Taunton, Bridgwater, Yeovil and Frome (regularly mentioned in “best places to live in the UK” surveys), you’ll find a high-quality environment to suit all lifestyles and all budgets.

A rich history of alternative, independent and spiritual living, makes us refreshingly different. This is a place that challenges the norm, where freedom and diversity are cherished and respected. Somerset is a special place where creative minds and passionate people thrive.
