Tunbridge Wells has been named in the top three chilled staycation destinations to visit this summer.
Taking into account factors such as green space, tourism figures and air quality, the historic Kent town was ranked in third place, behind Cirencester and Bourton-on-the-Water in Gloucestershire.
Maidstone also featured in the top 10 ranking in ninth place with Canterbury in 11th position.
The experts at PaulCamper said: "Surrounded by nature reserves and woodlands, Royal Tunbridge Wells is an ideal location for those looking to unwind after a year of stress.
"This peaceful town offers beautiful parks and gardens such as Dunorlan park and Scotney Castle Gardens, as well as vineyards close by for wine tasting and even ancient ruins to explore.
"It isn’t a fast paced place, but after a year of upheaval, it is the perfect place to recharge and reconnect with nature."
The research, carried out by private campervan rental service provider PaulCamper, aims to help people find the most stress-free locations they can explore and unwind in over the next month.
Tunbridge Wells was found to have the best mean temperature and ranked third for the location with the lowest humidity.
It also ranked highly for factors including tourism numbers and traffic levels.

Data for the various factors was obtained from a number of sources and the figures were ranked from one to 55 for each location – one being the best and 55 being the worst.
The location with the lowest final total was deemed the least stressful location and the location with the highest total was found to be the most stressful according to these factors.
PaulCamper started out as Germany's first campervan sharing platform for privately owned campers and caravans.
They launched their UK platform this year and already offer an extensive range of private campervans.
Unlike most traditional providers, they have many locations across the UK, which means their private campervan owners are accessible up and down the country, and they list new campervans on their website every day.
