The pretty village of Wye has been voted as one of the most attractive places to live in Britain.
It is one of 14 areas in the South East to be named in the top 101 Best Places to Live in Britain by the Sunday Times.
The village - with a population of just over 2,000 - ranks along big hitters such as Henley-on-Thames in Surrey and the Queen's 'home town' of Windsor in the prestigious list.
The guide combines data and statistics such as crime rates, house prices and school performance.
The places were selected for offering the best quality of life to the widest number of people, and combining desirable features such as a positive community spirit, good local shops and services and attractive outdoor spaces.
The historic village of Wye was last year voted third best place in Britain to live in the guide.
It boasts a monthly market and stands on the Pilgrims' Way and at a junction of the North Downs Way.
It also sits on the picturesque Great Stour river.
Sunday Times home editor Helen Davies said: "The Best Places guide is dedicated to celebrating Britain’s abundance of great cities, towns and villages.
"We combine in-depth data with first-hand personal experience to produce an authoritative list."
The full list is published in this Sunday's Sunday Times.
