The County Town of Taunton dates back to Saxon times and was given it’s name due to it’s position on the River Tone, “Tone town” and was an important Saxon settlement.
The Town Centre offers a superb variety of historic buildings of considerable architectural importance dating back through Tudor times to the medieval period and the crowning glory surely is the 13th Century Castle that stands in the centre, which is now run as the internationally acclaimed Castle Hotel.
Taunton has become a very popular area of the country to live in recent years because of it’s fantastic location within Somerset. Many refer to it as the gateway to the south west offering superb road and motorway links to Devon and Cornwall, whilst also being ideally located for Bristol, the A303 to London and the north and south coasts which are a little over half an hours drive.
Taunton is the County Town of Somerset and offers a fabulous shopping centre with many well known high street retailers and a superb selection of bars and restaurants. It has a mainline railway station making intercity links (London Paddington in under two hours), highly respected primary and secondary schooling, a well stocked library, ‘out of town’ multiplex cinema and ten pin bowling, highly regarded golf courses and tranquil walks can be enjoyed on the Quantock and Blackdown Hills, designated as areas of outstanding natural beauty.
"Ware & Co provide a highly competent and professional approach to the services they offer, which I have experienced as both a purchaser, vendor and landlord. The sale and letting of property is becoming more regulated and competitive, so it is refreshing to find a family run firm that offers value for money, personal service and has technically proficient staff. In particular, all the tasks involved with managing a let property (especially rent accounting) are undertaken within the office and there is no reliance on centralised administration or outsourcing of services. I appreciate their pragmatic approach to taking up references rather than relying on referencing agencies which is so common these days. Earlier this year I purchased a property through Ware & Co which they then let for me within a few weeks, and more recently I asked them to let and manage another property for a corporate Landlord, and they found a good tenant within a matter of days.
