Isle of Skye wins the title
Isle of Skye in Scotland has been named the most desirable place to live in Britain. And considering its all rolling countryside, pastel-coloured waterfront houses and idyllic little pubs, we can see why.
Rightmove ran a survey of almost 24,000 people to ask about the most picturesque places in the UK and this is where came out on top. (We’ve never wanted to book a seaside staycation more. Move over city living…)
Isle of Skye
Even just for the harbour town of Portree [pictured] and it helps that the average price of a home is around £230,952.
Woolacombe, North Devon
A surfer’s paradise, this seaside resort has ridiculously beautiful beaches. Not a bad view to call home…
This small Cornish town (with a population of just 4,500 people) is based in the south east and is all country lanes , churches and small cafés.
St Ives, Cornwall
The staycation favourite remains a top choice thanks to its beautiful beaches and highbrow art scene at Tate St Ives.
This small market town in the Lake District can’t be beaten in terms of surroundings. (Think mountaintops, lakes and that fresh, clear air.)
This coastal town along the south-west coast of Wales is the cheapest place to live out of the shortlist with houses averaging at around £169,969. Sign us up!
This fishing port town will make you feel like you’re on holiday everyday. We’d basically present we were in the French Riviera.
This coastal escape is famed as a sailing haven on the south coast of Devon so there’s never been a better time to buy a boat.
Situated atop of Windermere (England’s largest water), this North West England town is within the Lake District National Park.
The beaches! The surf! Need we say more?
