If you are moving house, looking to start a new life in Chard or retiring to Chard, we can help you.
Chard is geographically the highest town in Somerset and nestles in a corner of South Somerset between Dorset and Devon. Chard lies on the A30 road, 15 miles from Yeovil and the same from Taunton both offering mainline railway stations.
The town is surrounded by beautiful countryside and has a wealth of lovely places to visit for all the family, ideal for getting out and about and explorinf the local area. As the birthplace of flight, the local museum is a must for any visitors to discover the rich history of Frome’s past.
Chard is one of the towns in Somerset which takes part in Somerset carnivals which are the highlight of the year for locals. The ritual dates back to at least the 1600s when many parts of the county commemorated the Gunpowder Plot. Today, it’s a combination of open-air entertainment, fairgrounds, street food and late-night openings for many shops and restaurants so be sure to pop the date in your diary as you won’t want to miss out.
Many Somerset carnival carts are over 50 feet long and come covered in intricate themed designs featuring moving parts and thousands of light bulbs – not to mention the characters, all played by members of the local Carnival Clubs. Remember to bring plenty of loose change, as the proceeds from the coin-collection carts go to charity.
The town itself offers a variety of shops, pubs, restaurants, and cafes found in the main street. It has a small hospital and a medical centre of good repute so there are plenty of local amenities right on your doorstep.
