Rural location is no bar to fast internet access
Property experts Greenslade Taylor Hunt are the leading agents for rural business parks in Somerset and Dorset and have a range of units throughout both counties to suit a host of commercial needs.
Previously potential clients might have been put off a rural location by fears of slow internet speed, but that is no longer an issue.
Internet speeds at one rural business park are now faster than could be achieved in a town centre.
The landlord at popular Bowdens Business Centre, Bowdens Farm, Hambridge, near Curry Rivel, Somerset, has installed fibre optic cabling via BT providing 40MB high speed broadband (on 100MB bearer) ensuring optimum speeds that would be the envy of any High Street operation.
Robert Clark, Associate with Greenslade Taylor Hunt, said: “The Government's decision to role out fast speed broadband to rural areas may make rural business parks even more attractive.”
Currently the firm is marketing three units at the vibrant business park which is home to a number of office based firms plus a selection of niche “destination” retailers which draw in discerning shoppers.
It is also the base for nationally renowned restaurant and smokery Brown and Forrest. The well regarded smokery featured on an edition of Mary Berry’s current BBC2 cookery series.
As well as the delights of the restaurant the business park enjoys an attractive rural setting, yet is handy for Yeovil and Taunton, while the A303 and M5 are within easy 10 and 20 minutes drive.
Available units to suit small and medium sized firms are being marketed at the park. They include Unit 8 - a modern air-conditioned office space that extends to 76 sq m (825 sq ft) and is available at a rent of £8,500 per annum exclusive.
For a firm in need of more space there are Units 5 and 15 where 1,670 sq ft and 2,000 sq ft modern air conditioned office units are available.
High quality business units are also to let at the attractive Beaverbrook Business Centre, Cricket Malherbie, between Chard and Ilminster.
The site marries the appeal of converted traditional buildings with the requirements of the modern business age.
The centre comprises the delightful two storey Granary building plus the single storey Tie Stalls. Flexible units from 340 sq ft to 4,820 sq ft are available. Rents start from just £5,000.
