Yeovil is a vibrant market town on the Somerset/Dorset border surrounded by beautiful countryside and villages. It is an attractive area to live with a wide array of leisure, cultural and sport activities. Within the highly desirable South-West of England, house prices in the area are very favourable compared to other parts of the region, and the post holder may wish to be able to purchase a large rural property. There are excellent state and private schools nearby.
