Parts of the south west have been named as some of the best places to live in Britain.

Sherbourne in Oxfordshire and Tisbury in Wiltshire are just a couple of the areas that made it onto the Sunday Times Best places in Britain to live, list.

Fifteen Southwest locations in total were announced.

Judges make their choice by looking at data such as crime rate and education as well as their own personal experiences of the area.

This is the fifth year we have compiled the list, and this year's is even bigger and better - the guide is more personal, more detailed and more comprehensive than ever before. The list weighs up everything from considering the likely impact of the local plan, to whether the post office is still open, the range of housing, and the quality of the coffee.
