A Suffolk village has been named among the best places to live in the UK. 

Orford in east Suffolk has been included in a list of the best places to live in the country by The Mail. 

Describing the coastal village The Mail said: "Red-bricked Orford has the foodie revolution to thank for its sudden popularity. 

"Gourmands love the Saturday country market and rave about Pinney's on the quayside where they buy freshly landed fish and Pump Street Bakery where the doughnuts are to die for. 

"To get rid of the calories there's a little light crabbing on the quay, dinghy sailing up the Ore and the Alde and walks along footpaths and on the dyke opposite Orford Ness.

"In terms of more cerebral pursuits, there is a beautiful church – much admired by Benjamin Britten film nights, concerts and singing in the Jolly Sailor."

It comes after the village was named as one of the best hidden food destinations in the country

The Times said there is something for everyone pointing to the village's famous oysters, opting for the Butley Orford Oysterage as the best place to devour seafood.

For the sweet-lovers, they advise visitors to head to Pump Street Bakery in Pump Street, while selecting The Crown and Castle as a place to stay and enjoy a meal.
