Why Move to Yeovil
Yeovil (the name means ‘town on the river’), is situated in the county of Somerset. It lies around 21 miles from Shaftesbury and 27 miles from Taunton.
Once a strategic position for the Romans, a busy farming centre in medieval times and then a centre for glove making in the 1800’s, (Yeovil Town Football Club’s nickname is the Glovers). Yeovil is now a busy, active country town.
The Somerset town is deceptively big and engaging. It might only have a population of just over 40,000 but the town is still home to professional football club Yeovil Town, boasts several impressive theatres and cinemas and has a compact town centre packed with cafés, restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs.
Away from its centre there are several beautiful country parks offering green space to residents and visitors, just minutes from the town.

The purpose of the forward-thinking Growth Plan is to attract and guide investment; to overcome barriers; and maximise sustainable growth from local opportunities, benefiting Somerset’s communities, businesses and residents.
If you want to live in a fine old English country town with but with all the modern facilities you need, it would be hard to beat Yeovil.
