Yeovil Local Area

A guide to Yeovil and the surrounding area

The town has good communications, being a short distance from the A303 to London (130 miles) and Taunton (30 miles). Its rail links are excellent and there are two railway stations: Yeovil Pen Mill and Yeovil Junction.

Ham Hill, just to the south of Yeovil, has for centuries provided the lovely honey coloured stone for the construction of property in pretty villages, such as East and West Coker. Stags also deal with properties going out towards the Somerset Levels, up to the Mendip Hills and to the east into the Blackmore Vale.

Yeovil boasts a thriving centre with large employers such as Leonardo Helicopters (formerly Agusta Westland) based within the town and great shopping and leisure amenities. Neighbouring towns, including Sherborne, Crewkerne, Castle Cary, Bruton, Langport and Somerton, offer a variety of local services and independent businesses.
