Jurston fields offers a wide and varied range of beautiful homes, featuring different layouts and styles to suit all needs. This is our only new development in Somerset currently, and we are delighted to be able to contribute to the area through building quality new homes; and are equally delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity to acquire a brand new standout home in Wellington.
Each new home here has been designed to give unique Somerset character to blend with many of the established homes within the town of Wellington. There is a real sense of community spirit felt throughout our development. Jurston Fields features many green open spaces on your doorstep to walk and with many of the homes fronting onto pedestrian areas, this encourages our residents to interact with their neighbours and integrate within this new community.
Jurston Fields includes an area of publicly accessible woodland of around 6 hectares. This was planted ahead of applying for the original outline planning permission as the site was known to contain dormice. As part of C G Fry’s commitment to biodiversity protection and enhancement and in order to support future European Protected Species Licence application to remove specific hedgerows to allow the development, landscape architects and ecologists were engaged to design the woodland. The woodland has now been in place for at least 8 years and is flourishing providing new habitat for dormice. There is a programme of regular nest box surveys and we know that dormice are using the new habitat and occupying nest boxes. The woodland also provides for walks and glades for recreation and the local community is already using it.
Wellington itself is a friendly Somerset town set in a wide valley near both the Blackdown and Quantock hills making it the perfect location for exploring. Many visitors and travellers visit the National Trust Wellington monument perched on the top of the hill overlooking the town which was built to celebrate the Duke of Wellington’s victory at the battle of Waterloo.
The high street boasts several independent shops and cafes and pubs, whilst the 'Wellesley', the town's unique 1930s cinema, offers entertainment in the evening. Of course there is a choice of bigger supermarkets in the centre including a Waitrose where you can take care of your weekly shop.
Just 7 miles away is the larger town of Taunton with direct trains to Bristol and Exeter.
Wellington and its surrounding area offer a choice of Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ schools and excellent private schools. The Bridgwater and Taunton College with its dual-site campus, (the nearest being Taunton) offers some excellent further education options as well as the Ofsted ‘outstanding’ rated Richard Huish College.
