Houses and flats in South of Bath
Somerset is the gateway to the West Country and a wonderful place to live with its varied landscapes of rolling hills such as the Mendip Hills and the large flat expanses of land of the Somerset Levels.
Ranked as the seventh largest county in the UK, it is far from being the most highly populated meaning that there are vast expanses of open, unspoilt spaces waiting to be explored.
The county boasts plenty of beautiful properties for sale such as townhouses in cities like Bath and Wells, country cottages in villages such as Freshford, Wellow and Combe Hay and family homes in bustling market towns such as Frome.
