Ten East of England locations, including two from Norfolk and two from Suffolk, have been named among the Best Places to Live in Britain by The Sunday Times.
Orford in Suffolk was crowned as the Best Place to Live in the region with Holt, Thorpe St Andrew and Framlingham all making the top ten.
The accolade comes in part one of The Sunday Times Best Places to Live guide, which is published tomorrow (Sunday March 13).
The supplements combine data and statistics such as crime rates, house prices and school performance with local knowledge to compile the definitive top locations to make your home.
The locations were selected for offering the best quality of life to the widest number of people, and combining desirable features such as a positive community spirit, good local shops and services and attractive outdoor spaces.
