Which three West Country villages ranked most popular in the UK?

According to a report from Rightmove this month, three West Country villages ranked most popular for buyers and those renting in the UK. But, where are these highly desirable areas?

Chacewater, Cornwall

Based on the number of views per property, Rightmove reported that Chacewater in Cornwall was the most desirable village to buy property, unsurprisingly, due to its quaint nature, elegant buildings and range of ​​​​​​​amenities. Chacewater is situated just five miles from the cathedral city of Truro and is just a short drive to the beach. Steeped in a history and heritage of mining, this quaint West Country village would be an ideal location to relocate.

Wembury, South Devon
​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​Another West County village featuring in the top five is Wembury, situated on the South Coast of Devon in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this coastal village is laden in dramatic cliffs and beautiful beaches.         Wembury beach is fun for all the family whether water sports such as surfing, kayaking and sailing is your thing or whiling away the hours with a net and bucket in its renowned rockpools.
