Experience the best of Somerset with a new home at Chaucer’s Meadow
Between the sought-after towns of Bridgwater and Taunton, in beautiful Somerset, our new development Chaucer’s Meadow offers a range of 2, 3 and 4-bedroom new homes. With plentiful town amenities a few minutes away, and the stunning Quantock Hills AONB on your doorstep, the semi-rural location of this development will suit a wide range of buyers. Also benefitting from good local schools and fantastic commuter links to the cities of Bristol, Exeter and Bath, this is a fabulous place to call home.
A 10-minute drive will take you to the heart of Bridgwater. The friendly and attractive town has plenty to offer, including independent shops and high street stores, a state-of-the-art theatre, a good range of pubs and restaurants, an arts centre, two museums, a swimming pool and a cinema. The town is also well-known for its spectacular annual carnival, the oldest in the UK. Or, drive 7 miles south of the development to reach Taunton, the county town of Somerset, which has an even larger range of stores and amenities.
Chaucer’s Meadow is located on the edge of the Quantock Hills AONB, just minutes from rolling hills, great walking routes and pretty villages. For days out you could visit the arboretum and wild gardens at National Trust Fyne Court, the beautiful formal gardens and lakes of Hestercombe House, and 13 miles away, the peaceful Bridgwater Bay National Nature Reserve. Closer to home, Kings Cliff forest is just 2 miles away and a great place to walk dogs and take children.
