One particular region of the county ended up at the top of the leaderboard, simply missing out on a podium spot.

In fourth place on the list is the historic town of Wells in Somerset, narrowly beaten by Sky Island which came third, the Cotswolds which came second and Settle in Yorkshire, which was crowned first.
