Kingsbridge in Devon named as one of the 30 best towns in Britain
Kingsbridge in Devon has been named as one of the 30 best towns in Britain to live by The Times.
The paper said the South Devon town makes the list because it is "less costly than nearby Salcombe".
It adds: "The big draws are good schools, cafes and pubs, and coastal walks."
According to The Times, Kingsbridge's residents are "retired folk and families wanting a small-town vibe".

Also named in the list are Liskeard in South East Cornwall and Bridport in West Dorset.
Liskeard is described as "an antidote to glitzy Rock and free of drunken teens on their first solo holidays".
The paper adds: "its granite houses are honest and charming - and extremely affordable. Local schools perform well. The town is on the edge of Bodmin Moor and an easy hop to the coast."
Residents are described as; "Locals, many of them farmers. Incomers may struggle to shake off the 'grockle' tag for a generation or two."
Bridport is described as "a market town with chutzpah".
"The street market hums with activity, and Bridport's independent retailers are holding up strongly.
"You can commute to Exeter, but why do it?"
