The list of the 54 poshest UK villages has been compiled from exclusive data from Savills Estate Agents - based on a combination of the highest house prices, best lifestyle amenities, connectivity and 'chocolate-box appeal.

Little Gaddesden

Little Gaddesden is known for its historic ties with the National Trust’s Ashridge Estate and sits in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The average place for homes in this village are over £1.3m, the high house prices are reportedly driven by its close proximity to Berkhamsted - a popular location for London commuters.

Kris Smith of Savills said: “It’s highly desirable and full of character, with a local shop and post office, a primary school and tennis and cricket clubs."

Among the reasons for the village's posh appeal include it's proximity to the National Trust's Ashridge Estate and Berkhamsted and the number of tennis and cricket clubs.
