Aberaeron, the beautiful harbour town of colourful Georgian houses situated between Cardigan and Aberystwyth on the Welsh coast, has been voted the best place to live in rural Britain by The Sunday Times.
Perhaps best known for its seafood festival, regetta, festival of Welsh ponies and cobs, Harbourmaster Hotel and delicious honey ice cream at The Hive, the town attracts thousands of tourists every year but predominantly it is a lovely place to live with its bustling harbour, great community spirit and low crime rate coupled with its accessibility to the university town of Aberystwyth providing all the amenities you could wish for.
The official panel took into consideration a number of variants before reaching their decision. Data on house prices, schools, crime rates and transport links, as well as other significant factors, such as the local pub and even how likely you are to get a parking ticket!
Aberdovey in Gwynedd followed up in second place, beating Arlesford, Hampshire to third followed by Banburgh, Northumberland and Bampton in Oxfordshire. St Davids in Pembrokeshire and Port Eynon, Gower also made the list.
