Ten areas across the county have appeared on an annual list named the top 250 places to live in 2023.

The annual list is compiled by Muddy Stilettos, which is an urban guide to the countryside and a leading women’s lifestyle website.

Each detailed online feature, focusing on an individual village, town or city in the Top 250, comes with location map, up-to-date information on desirable properties available for sale and on-the-ground insights into top postcodes, schools and nurseries, shopping, culture, restaurants and bars. As well as the all-important commuting journeys for those still traveling into London and major conurbations.

Hero Brown, the founder and editor-in-chief of Muddy Stilettos, said: “When people decide to move, they’re searching for more than just a house - they want a home, a lifestyle that works for them and their family, and if they’re strategic, a long-term investment too.

“Our 2023 Top 250 Best Places to Live’ guide will give them that extra reassurance they need to make their search easier in these difficult economic times.

“We’ve built our reputation on our first-hand knowledge of the most exciting, vibrant places to go and things to do outside London.

“Now, with 50 more recommendations than last year’s guide and new information added on important considerations such as nursery education and nearby culture, the 2023 list is a natural step for us to continue to expand our authority in this area.

“Combined with up to the minute listings of desirable properties, we think it’s a unique reference point in a turbulent yet hopefully resilient property market.”
