Nailsworth has been named as one of the top 101 best places to live in Britain in a guide by The Sunday Times.
The guide, released today, says of the town: "Just south of Stroud, and west of the more fashionable addresses, Nailsworth is a lovely Cotswold market town. Over the past five years, it has been noticeably going up in the world, with ever-fancier restaurants and shops attracting more of the same. William's Fish Market and Foodhall started the ball rolling, and the upward trend is self-perpetuating.
"Nailsworth is notable for its free parking and the number of Saab convertables that occupy the spaces. The best houses in the centre cost up to £1million; larger homes on the outskirts go for £3million-£4million."
The newspaper rounds off its analysis by saying: "Why we love it: Posh grub and no parking tickets".
Cheltenham is also featured in the list representing Gloucestershire.
