These picture postcard villages are stunning in the summer, but when a dusting of snow falls over winter they take on a magical quality. If you’ve always dreamed of living in such a beautiful location, then consider moving to these villages across the UK.
Originally, Castle Coombe was a British hill fort which became occupied by the Romans due to its proximity to The Fosse Way. After the Romans came the Normans, who built the fort up into a Castle.
More recently, the picturesque streets have been the backdrop to films such as Doctor Doolittle, War Horse and Stardust.
While it isn’t a traditional village, this perfectly designed tourist attraction would be a top winter village for many. The attraction welcomes around 225,000 visitors per year to see the colorful buildings, coastal setting, and famous Portmeirion Hotel.
Clough Williams-Ellis bought the land on the Dwyryd estuary near his home in 1925, and the full competition wasn’t finished until 1976.
The setting for one of ‘Britain’s best-loved adverts’ is in Shaftesbury. In a 1973 advert for Hovis bread, a baker’s boy had to push his bike to the top of the cobbled hill. Even now, people still visit the village to see the famous hill. The village has a farmers’ market, information centre, museum and supermarket.
Rated as one of the most beautiful villages in the UK, Lower Slaughter looks stunning in winter. This quaint village sits beside the little Eye stream and is known for its unspoilt limestone cottages in the traditional Cotswold style.
Copse Hill Road in the village was once named as the most romantic street in Britain in a poll for Google Street View, so it’s the perfect destination for couples.
The village is nearly 60 miles from London, between Colchester and Ipswich. The village has a fifteenth-century flint faced church which is clearly visible from the A12. It is also served by a primary school, post office and village store, and three pubs.
This village is not across the pond in New York, but actually in the Cotswolds. The village is named after its wide central street, boarded by fine green chestnut trees and an amazing array of beautiful Cotswolds stone houses dating from the 17th and 18th century.
At Christmas time every year, the red chestnut trees that line the high street are adorned in fairy lights. On special nights, carol singers and street entertainers come out for an evening of Christmas shopping.
Chipping Campden was one of the most important of the medieval wool towns and famous throughout Europe. This legacy of fame and prosperity is everything that give the town its character. In 1970 the High Street and much of the rest of the town was officially designated a conservation area to preserve the ancient town for centuries to come.
