The best places to live in Somerset Bath City News

Where to live in Somerset is the best place to live? Whenever the question is asked, it is always hotly contested.

Frome was crowned the Best Place to Live in the Southwest by The Sunday Times earlier this year and the national winner was coincidentally, but unsurprisingly, also in the Southwest.

But what is the best place to live in Somerset according to the people who live here?

We asked Somerset Live readers to weigh in on the debate via Facebook.

Among the most cited are Castle Cary, Street and Porlock, although the latter has been noted to be “a bit pricey”.

The main runners in the debate were Wells, who received several nods, as well as Street and East Quantoxhead.

However, there were a number of other places that received lavish praise – proof that the answer to the question could simply be that all over Somerset has something special to do.

Stephen Hill said: “Chard from a distance. Great people, great pubs and a great local golf course.

Ju Doutch chose the small village of Misterton near Crewkerne, calling it “nicer”.

Ju said: “So many residents have been here for generations including mine and newbies feel accepted and welcomed in the hope that other generations will live in this great place on the southern border of Somerset and Dorset. “

Tom Scarlet appointed Wootton Courtenay to Exmoor because “it’s worth the trip just to hear the big accent”.

Mendips also received a few mentions, especially the south side for its “stunning views”.

Gab Elliot threw Yeovil’s hat into the ring as a potential underdog in the race.

She said, “I know it’s not the most exciting place with a lot to do, it’s not extremely safe, but Yeovil is my hometown and it’s my home. So I would say Yeovil.

Additional honorable mentions were Odcombe, Martock, Shepton Mallet, Sand Bay, Wheddon Cross, West Coker, Bishops Lydeard, Ilminster, Crewkerne, Montacute and Glastonbury.
