Wellington is a friendly, community-based town situated one mile from junction 26 of the M5 motorway and is just 7 miles from the County town of Taunton with its main-line railway station. The town offers varied amenities, which include two large sports complexes (Wellington Sports Centre with a 25 m. pool and the Princess Royal Centre located at the local public school); an historic art-deco cinema; a beautifully maintained park with adjoining football pitch, rugby club and children’s recreation ground.
The town has several small restaurants and independent public houses, numerous independent retail shops and three supermarkets (including Waitrose). Children’s education is provided by five primary schools (two of which are Church of England V.C), Court fields secondary school and Wellington public school.
We love Wellington for its proximity to the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nearby coastal towns and exquisite National Parks of Exmoor and Dartmoor.
