The town is blessed with some fantastic independent traders and local businesses. Here’s our pick of the Best of Chard;
A real hub of the local community, Eleos is loved by locals and it’s easy to see why with so many tasty treats, healthy dishes, and desserts you’ll keep coming back for.
A real taste of Somerset, packed full of local flavour, farm fresh produce, gifts, treats, wine, cuts of meat and more. There’s even a great café, the perfect spot to fill your pantry.
Want an old look for your new home? Stuart Bull Antiques is full of stylish, tasteful and occasionally quirky furniture and decor to grace your home.
If you enjoy the occasional glass of something cool, Tapstone Brewing Co is right on your doorstep. There’s even a friendly taproom, so you can try before taking your favourite brews home.
The most southerly point of Somerset, Chard is actually closer to the Devon coast than it is Somerset cities like Bath, that just means it offers the best of both worlds and is certainly packed with the charms of the south west.
Surrounded by glorious countryside, Chard is nestled between the Blackwood Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, East Devon AONB and Dorset AONB. And if that’s not enough initials and organisations, it’s also not far from the Jurassic Coast (a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Site of Scientific Interest… Phew!). Plus there are charming villages and country pubs to be explored at your leisure.
The town itself has a fascinating history, from hanging judges and hunted hotels, to the Bank of England’s secret stash and a claim to being the real Camelot. You’ll find great local shops, quirky producers, delightful eateries and a friendly community feel.
As well as being close to no less than three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, dog walkers, joggers and cyclists have the Chard Reservoir which covers 91.4 acres as well as a nearby nature reserve. The town has a cricket club, theatre society, plus groups dedicated to photography, cycling, literature and all manner of interests for those that like to join in.
There’s a weekly street market (Saturdays), a good selection of local shops and a supermarket.
