The 20 Most Idyllic Towns and Villages in the UK

To help you pick the most idyllic retreat among many, West Wales-based vacation cottage company FBM Holidays has compiled lists of the 10 prettiest towns and the 10 prettiest villages across the UK. Those awards include designations like “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty,” “Special Area of Conservation,” and “Village of the Year.”According to those metrics, Keswick in Cumbria’s Lake District is the most beautiful town in the entire UK. It also boasts the Derwent Pencil Museum, since modern pencil production began in Keswick. See both lists below, and find out more about the towns and villages on them here.
