Surrounded by stunning scenery
Blagdon Village is close to Taunton town centre in Somerset – yet close to Exmoor National Park and the Quantock, Blackdown and Mendip Hills – all of which are easily accessed by the M5 motorway. The Somerset Levels and famous Cheddar Gorge are also just a short drive away.
Blagdon Village itself is separated from the town centre by the famous Vivary Park – a popular attraction for local people who enjoy the wide open spaces and recreation facilities available. It is also a popular choice for Blagdon Village residents.
Somerset is a beautiful county with coastal scenery, wetlands and stunning hills and gorges. Add to that the lovely towns of Taunton, Wellington, Glastonbury, Bridgwater, Wells, Dunster, Ilminster, Yeovil, Chard, crewkerne and Shepton Mallet – and you start to get a sense of why Blagdon Village is so popular for those looking for the perfect retirement location.
