So without further ado, lets go through our recommendations for the best places where to live in the UK. The criteria is simple - the places that local residents boast about the most make the final selection!

Northumberland is a real life paradise in the Northeast of the UK and it boasts one of the lowest crime rates in the country. There are plenty of buses and trains too to link residents to nearby cities Newcastle, Sunderland and Middlesbrough. Towns such as Alnwick are charming with beautifully cobbled streets and local shops and there is plenty of snow to ensure a White Christmas.

Surrey has long since been a mainstay on these lists of the best places to lve and it continues to harbour happy residents who seem to want for very little. You will need to be well off though to move to Surrey as property prices in the area are well above the national average. It is therefore no coincidence that many celebrities reside in and around Surrey which is within a hop skip and a jump from London.

Gloucestershire is one of the best places to live in the Southwest and house prices are on the cheaper end of the scale here for those looking to purchase. Schools in the area are regulars on the top performer lists and there is also a relatively low crime rate. Have no fear about getting around either with a very high functioning transport system in place. Explore what Gloucestershire has going for it at www.exploregloucestershire.co.uk.
