Priced out of the Bath property market. If you're trying to get onto the property ladder and don't mind a short commute to enjoy all that Bath has to offer. Why not try Trowbridge.
We've decided to take a look at the county town of Wiltshire Trowbridge. It is a good option for those priced out of the beautiful City of Bath. It is from a swift 16-minute train ride from Trowbridge to Bath. You'll also be from a 31-minute train journey to Bristol and from a 33-minute train journey to Swindon. The average price for a flat in Trowbridge is £149,000 and terrace house £211,500, which is very reasonable in contrast to Baths £347000 average price tag for a flat and £433,500 for a house. If you're looking to get on the property ladder, but need/want to be close to Bath, then the major price difference between properties available should prove very tempting. Obviously, Trowbridge doesn't have the allure of Bath, but there are many plans in the pipeline to improve the area especially now that the town has received £16.3m from the Future High Streets Fund. Trowbridge has also received funding for safe cycle routes. The town is home to some good primary and secondary schools, the Arc Theatre, and the National Trusts Court Gardens.
