The Berkshire town of Wokingham has been named the best place to live in the county by the Muddy Stilettos Awards.

Praised for its "excellent schools, buzzy town and surrounding countryside", the town beat the likes of Windsor and Cookham to the top spot.

However, our readers disagree with the rating, with one stating: "Surrounded by countryside. Not any more."

Many were quick to point out the increase in houses being built in the area.

Liam Nagle said: "It was a lovely country town surrounded by farmland and woods, but there has been a huge amount of development since."

While Jonny Hawkins said: "Really says something about the rest of the county if this is the best it gets doesn't it."

Despite the depleting countryside, Wokingham still has a lot to offer, with a bustling high street and plenty of attractions for all generations.

Boasting plenty of unique independent restaurants and cocktail bars such as The Leafy Elephant, Wokingham has a thriving high street whether night or day.

Gift shops, boutiques, bakeries and sustainable shops line the high street - which has moved with the times and trends.

Just down the road, Swinley Forest offers great "outdoorsy fun", while theatres and cinema cater for those seeking a more relaxing environment.
