Clovelly has been revealed as the ‘most Instagrammable’ village in the UK.
It has been marked the UK’s most picture-perfect by Bankrate, which took to the social media platform and assessed the number of hashtags for 100 different rural locations from the tip of Scotland to every nook and cranny of Cornwall.
It found Clovelly’s charming cobbles and stunning harbour have been captured 134,353 times, putting it at the top of the charts.
Portmeirion in Wales, was runner-up with 114,323 Instagram hashtags.
Castle Combe, a village within the Cotswolds Area of Natural Beauty in Wiltshire, was third with 99,641.
