Yeovil House Removals
A vibrant market town in Somerset, Yeovil has a population of 40,000. It’s position on the Fosse Way (now the A37) between Dorchester and Ilchester makes it much easier for people to reach, and we have the Romans to thank for that. Its modern pedestrian shopping precinct recalls the town’s Roman roots in its name, the Quedam, while housing many national retailers. The town centre also has a major department store, countless specialist shops and outdoor markets on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Yeovil is very much happy medium for those looking to live within easy reach of a town with excellent facilities but who still want the quality of life associated with the many pretty villages of the surrounding South Somerset countryside.
