Holme-next-the-Sea was ranked 33rd in the list which was topped by Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds and Hathersage in the Peak District.

The ranking was compiled by HomeToGo to help travellers "find first-class, lesser-searched spots for their summer getaways".

Each area was judged on its summer weather, pubs, local activities and its scenery.
