The poshest and most picture-perfect villages in Britain have been named in a new survey.
These are the rural villages where people are so desperate to buy a home, they will rent for months or even years until the right property comes on the market.
Now estate agents Savills has identified the most desirable villages across the country, based on the highest house prices, best lifestyle amenities, connectivity and chocolate-box appeal.
They have picked the best village in each county and shared the results with the Telegraph.
“People want villages that have a bit of everything, from schools to stunning countryside, with accessibility to cities and transport infrastructure,” Frances Clacy, analyst at Savills, told the paper.
So which village made the cut from North Yorkshire?
Big family homes and good pubs make Kirkby Overblow, west of York and south of Harrogate, the top posh village in North Yorkshire.
“It has all the things that define a village, such as good pubs,” Ed Stoyle of Savills tells the Telegraph, recommending the Shoulder of Mutton. “It has a school and a quiet road that just leads to more villages,” he adds.
The average house price in the village is £698,656.
Elsewhere in Yorkshire, Sutton upon Derwent is named as the poshest village in the East Riding.
With an average house price of £409,071, a great pub in the St Vincent Arms and the famous Woodhouse Grange Cricket Club just a mile down the road, the village east of York has it all.
And in West Yorkshire, Scarcroft near Leeds makes the cut.
