Yes, a beautiful Yorkshire Dales village caught the attention with its lush green surroundings and location within the national park along with the amenities found in the quaint village.
The village of Reeth is a lesser-known place to visit in the Swaledale region of the Yorkshire Dales national park, but it is no less impressive than the more popular choices of say Burnsall or Muker.
It has a population of 700 people and according to the CBD retailer Ice Head Shop, it is the number one village in Yorkshire and seventh in the UK.
A range of factors is taken into account such as population, crime rate, hiking opportunities, birdwatching opportunities, fishing trails and how much it appears on social media to determine its place.
Obviously, these surveys can be taken with a pinch of salt, but it still doesn’t take away from the fact that Reeth it located within one of the most beautiful locations in the UK and is an idyllic spot to visit.
It has three pubs, numerous guest houses and hotels nearby so make for a great place to enjoy a few ales after exploring the surrounding areas.
Taking the top spot in the survey was the village of Bassenthwaite in the Lake District which was less than 500 inhabitants, one pub and no shops.
Following that was Dartmouth, Devon; Over Haddon, Peak District; Broadway, Worcestershire; and Bakewell, Peak District. Another spot that got a nod in the list which was located in the Peaks a stone’s throw from Yorkshire was Hathersage which came tenth in the list
