Cambridge is one of the most prestigious places in the UK and world-famous for its historic university, but it is also one of the most picturesque cities in the UK. Cambridge has a historic city center with lots of impressive architecture, but it also has a peaceful river flowing through the city and plenty of green spaces and surrounding natural beauty.

There is also a range of new build homes in Cambridge, making it a good option for first-time buyers.


Cornwall is one of the premier UK destinations for summer vacations, thanks to the beautiful beaches, charming seaside towns, and rolling English countryside. This also makes Cornwall a great place to live as you can enjoy all of this throughout the year (it is also much quieter outside the summer months!).

Cornwall has many beautiful places to live, including St. Ives, Penzance, and Truro. The temperature is usually warmer than in northern areas of the UK, so if you crave good weather and being by the sea, Cornwall is a great choice! 

The Lake District

The Lake District boasts postcard-esque views with the ability to get out and hike, cycle, and spend time in nature throughout the year. There are many places in the county of Cumbria that will allow you to make the most out of the Lake District, such as Ambleside.

Ambleside is one of the most picturesque towns in the Lake District, overlooking the stunning Lake Windermere, and is filled with stone houses, cafes, and shops.


Bath is another historic city founded by the Romans and used for its natural hot springs to create a thermal spa. This means there are historical landmarks and pretty architecture throughout, but you are also surrounded by the rolling hills of Somerset, combining city and countryside life.

There are many things to do in Bath, including the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey, Putney Bridge, and many museums and galleries.

The UK has beautiful places to live all over, whether you want to live in a historic city or out in the rolling countryside. The above are 4 of the most beautiful places to live in the UK that would allow for a great quality of life.

There is obviously a lot that you need to think about when choosing a new home, but living somewhere filled with beauty can make a huge difference to your well-being and make every day a treat.
