somerset retirement-properties

Somerset is nestled in the South West of England, bordering the counties of Bristol and Gloucestershire to the North and Wiltshire to the East. Somerset’s not just known for its mix of rolling hills and large flat expanses of land, it’s also known for its great food - strawberries, cheddar cheese and of course cider – so it makes for the perfect retirement location!

With its delicious food and beautiful landscapes, this area is very popular for retirees and there are a lot of retirement properties in Somerset to choose from. Read on to find out more about the area, or skip to the bottom of the page to browse properties currently on the market.

Some of the more popular towns in Somerset to retire to include: Taunton, Burnham-on-sea, Glastonbury, Yeovil, Minehead, Cheddar and Mendip. Somerset’s also home to England’s smallest city – Wells! If you’re thinking of retiring to Somerset, why not visit the Tourist Information Office website to learn what each town has to offer.

There’s lots to see and do in Somerset. You could visit Dunster Castle or the Jane Austen Museum if you enjoy sightseeing. It’s also home to the legendary Glastonbury festival where one in five festival goers are over the age of 45. If you want to get out for some fresh air, you could take a brisk walk down the sandy beach at Minehead or stroll down the promenade at Weston-Super-Mare and find a deckchair to sit and admire the beautiful view. If you want to meet new people or learn a new skill, Age UK Somerset run a variety of activity and exercise classes such as Tai Chi and computer clubs to help tune up your IT skills.

In addition, Somerset has access to some of the country’s best green open spaces including Exmoor National Park, the Quantock, the Mendip Hills and the Somerset Levels, which is a wonderful place to watch wildlife and is one of the best locations in the UK for birdwatching.

Somerset has some great transport links - the ‘West Somerset Railway’ has ten stations between Bishops Lydeard and Minehead and the ‘The Buses of Somerset’ have over 40 bus routes running throughout the county to keep you connected.
