Surely the most beautiful time of the year to visit the New Forest, with the golden leaves and low setting sun, you can capture shots like this amazing picture in Lyndhurst Village.
•
Known as the capital of The New Forest since William the Conqueror established it as a royal hunting ground in 1079. Lyndhurst has been visited by kings and queens staying at the Royal Manor throughout the centuries.

Pretty much the most epic English Village shot we think we’ve seen so far.
Shot in Pateley Bridge, which we have featured before but we’ll proudly do it again, nestled in the West Riding of Yorkshire, amongst the stunning scenery of the Yorkshire Dales

Uppingham is blessed with a range of speciality shops and traditional retailers, many of whom are still family owned and run. For browsing around antiques shops, Uppingham hits the mark perfectly allowing you to meander around the town for hours, finding hidden gems around every corner.

Mansion houses, millponds, a golf course and horse riding trails...in Dulwich Village you would think you’re in a rural village and not in Zone 3 and in London.
•
It’s maintained its village charm and earned its conservation area status in 1968. Very upmarket, exclusive and has lots of independent shops, a Grade II listed pub and a lot of white picket fence buildings.

A picturesque coastal village on the shores of the Forth, with historic buildings, cobbled streets and winds, a peaceful harbour where time stands still.
•
You can explore Dysart’s nooks and crannies, strolling along the shore to glimpse seals and dolphins, or just sit in the sun and watch the sun go down.

Describes by @telegraph as the Cotswolds and canals without the crowds, Bradford Upon Avon is enchanting and full of beautiful places to stop and take a minute to admire your surroundings.
•
The ancient bridge in the centre remains its natural focus and the bridge still retains two of its original 13th-century arches.
The historical view from the main bridge incorporates the hill above the town which is dotted with the old weavers' cottages and the river bank flanked with the 19th-century former cloth mills.

We want to stay in this private, handmade Bothy on the Scoraig Peninsular, near #Ullapool and #Gairloch.
•
Perfectly isolated, with panoramic views and abundant wildlife including dolphins, whales, golden eagles and much more.
•
Accessible to the tiny village of Scoraig itself, a secluded village of around 70 residents that can only be reached by boat. The five school children in the area were without a teacher at the end of 2015, with a job advertisement seeking someone with ‘emotional stability’...
•
Post is delivered here three times a week and most of the resident lives off their own land, harvesting veg from their plots or gardens raising their own livestock.

Though it’s located just five miles from central London, a visit to leafy, family-friendly Greenwich almost feels like a retreat from some of the city’s more hectic districts. 
Calm and community minded, Greenwich has the feel of a genuine village, albeit a large one, Greenwich is the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and the Prime Meridian of the world.

@thecreakyshed_greenwich provides the freshest local ingredients and seasonal produce, a perfect village greengrocers.

Smallest House in Great Britain
Conwy, Wales
•
Reputed to be Britain's smallest house, The Smallest House in Great Britain (Welsh: Y Tŷ Lleiaf ym Mhrydain Fawr), also known as the Quay House, is a tourist attraction on the quay in Conwy, Wales.
•
The minuscule home was created in the 16th century and remained in use until 1900, when the tenant was a 6-foot-3-inch (1.91 m) fisherman named Robert Jones. The rooms were too small for him to stand up in fully and he was eventually forced to move out when the council declared the house unfit for human habitation, along with a number of properties. The house is still owned by his descendants, having been passed to female relatives since Robert's sons showed a lack of interest in the business.
