Why move to a new build home in Taunton?

Welcoming hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, it should come as no surprise that Taunton is a hugely desirable area for prospective homebuyers. Away from the rich history and cultural vibrancy that gives the town such tourist appeal, Taunton offers all the resources that you need in a residential area. You'll enjoy a great mix of high-street and independent retail, unique restaurants and a wealth of attractions – all wrapped up in the picturesque countryside of the West Country.


Taunton boasts a number of superb walking trails that celebrate the area's greener side. Trails along the Somerset Levels, Quantock Hills and Blackdowns offer miles of postcard-worthy landscapes, while the wider Taunton Deane area around the town has plenty to offer, too.

The town is also known for its history, much of which can be discovered in the Museum of Somerset that sits among what remains of the famous Taunton Castle. An occasional visit to Hestercombe Gardens is a must; those looking for first-class sport, meanwhile, can find it at Somerset Country Cricket Club.


As a town of more than 70,000, there are a number of 'Good' and 'Outstanding' schools from which to choose in Taunton's immediate catchment area. The renowned University of Exeter is also within easy reach by both road and rail for those pursuing further education.

Getting around Taunton

Road links in and out of Taunton are excellent, with the A3087 the main road running through the town. Just off of the southeast edge of Taunton is the M5, which is the fastest travel route for drivers looking to get to nearby major locations like Exeter and Weston-Super-Mare.
