A Norfolk coastal village has been named in the top three spots in the UK for a staycation with a pet.

Happisburgh has been included in a list drawn up by

The seaside village is known for being home to the oldest working lighthouse on the county's coast and the only independently operated lighthouse in the UK.

It is also known for coastal erosion, as the village loses two metres of land to the sea every year. This rate is predicted to accelerate in the future.

It was featured on BBC's Countryfile last month with John Craven and Matt Baker visiting for part of an episode.

Happisburgh was the only location in the east of England on the list with others being in Yorkshire, Northumberland and Derbyshire.

Keswick came top of the list with Whitby in second. Matlock, Scarborough and Seahouses also featured.

The rankings were collated using data from the holiday rental site.
