A real 'Gateway Town' for the south-west and the natural beauty of Somerset, Taunton sits on the main line operated by Great Western trains and is close to the M5 motorway.
After being named as a ‘Strategically Important Town’ in the government’s Regional Spatial Strategy, Taunton has seen a good deal of regeneration in the last decade. Helped by good transport links, due to its proximity to the M5 and a train station on the mainline between Exeter and Bristol, corporate travellers often come to the area and find serviced apartments a great way to make the most of their stay.
Our serviced apartments in Taunton give not only great access to Somerset’s county town itself, but also to beautiful Somerset countryside nearby. The Somerset Levels, Quantock Hills and Blackdowns offer three very differing landscapes all within easy reach.
Serviced apartments are a great alternative to hotel living, especially for travellers who find themselves in an area for more than a few days. With your own cooking facilities and flexible space to entertain or just relax, these apartments offer a safe and affordable way to make the most of your stay. So whether you are coming to Taunton on business or pleasure, or both, have a look at what our Taunton serviced apartments have to offer.
