WHERE do you reckon is the most chic place to live in Somerset?

We've had access to a survey showing the top five most stylish places in the county.

There's sure to be some disagreement about the results of a poll of 5,000 people, including local polling in Somerset.

But don't shoot the messenger - the results have been published by online store Furniturebox.

Here, in ascending order are the results:

  • In fifth place - Watchet;
  • Fourth - Castle Cary;
  • Third - Axbridge;
  • Second - Glastonbury;
  • And the winner is - Cheddar.

Locations were ranked according to the beauty of the buildings, the stunning scenery and their popularity with artists and as a filming location.

Cheddar has been used as a film and TV location countless times, including for the movie Paper Mask and the Robin Hood TV series.

It came tenth on the national list, which was topped by Lavenham, in Suffolk.

On the edge of the Somerset Levels, Cheddar’s elevation soars 500 feet to the top of Cheddar Gorge.

Home to the country’s highest inland cliffs, it boasts one of the country's most impressive landmarks alongside world-famous produce.

A Furniturebox spokesperson said: “Cheddar is the most stylish place to live in Somerset.

“Any of the Somerset locations voted by residents would have been worthy winners and show why it is such a stylish county, loved by artists, film-makers and tourists from all over the world.

“What is interesting is how many of the most stylish locations were not the most affluent places in their locality.

“Good style can be achieved whatever your budget and what marks out Somerset's most stylish places is how they all have a timeless quality achieved over generations by the stylish people living there.

“That same sense of style is true with furniture and having a good eye for the right piece for your home is far more important than how much money you have to spend.”
