Information on Somerset and where to get a building survey

Some may use Somerset as a stop off en route to Devon and Cornwall but we believe that Somerset is definitely a great holiday destination in itself. For walkers there is some of the best countryside in the country including the Mendips and Exmoor . Historically the area has much to offer with for example Bath being an international major attraction and of course there are some great traditional seaside resorts. We love the fabulous local produce served in the hostelries and of course its cider making (did you know that there are over 400 types of cider apples grown in Somerset ?). You need to visit yourself to really appreciate the whole spectrum of what Somerset has to offer but for our insight into the area, read on.

The coast of Somerset has seaside resorts, long sandy beaches, harbours, marinas and of course the dramatic Exmoor coastline. We are delighted to visit any part of Somerset including Axbridge an historic market town at the foot of the Mendip Hills, Bath a beautiful city which of course is famous for the Roman Baths but as property specialists we adore Bath because it has some of the finest architecture in Europe including the Crescent and Pulteney Bridge, Bishop Sutton, visit Bridgwater to marvel at the Guy Fawkes illuminated Carnival which takes place each November, Burnham on Sea, Castle Cary a pretty market town with high quality shops, Chard, Cheddar where you must visit Cheddar Gorge where you can marvel at the wonderous site of the limestone gorge carved into the southern slopes of the Mendip hills, Chew Valley, Clevedon an unspoilt Victorian seaside resort, Congresbury, the medieval village of Dunster which has a castle and a priory, the historic market town of Frome, Glastonbury famous for its annual music festival, Midsomer Norton, Minehead, Montacute with the magnificent 16th century Montacute House, a National Trust property, Nailsea, Portishead, Radstock, Saltford, Shepton Mallet, Simonsbath, Somerton, South Petherton, Street, Taunton the county town of Somerset has a good range of shops in the centre and when you've finished shopping cricket fans can visit the Somerset Cricket Museum, Watchet, Wellington, Wells where you can have a great family day out at Wookey Hole Caves, Weston-Super-Mare which is a great seaside resort with all the traditional seaside attractions as well as dedicated areas for wind and water sports, Williton, Wincanton, Winford, Yeovil.
