In the feature, Uffington is described as a 'lively community', with a thatched pub - The Bertie Arms - and an annual scarecrow festival.

Its closeness to Stamford and Burghley House, Gardens, Horse Trials and Golf Club also add to its ‘posh appeal’.

Burley's mansion and 'fascinating local history' are listed among the reasons for its charm, as well as its proximity to Rutland Water.
