The whole of the steep main street in Haworth (Yorkshire) is cobbled.
The cobbles were made especially wide so that the cart-horses could get a grip as they pulled their wares up the street.
There's lots of character in Haworth as a whole, it's a very interesting village.
Some of the residential streets in Lancashire, where I live, are still cobbled, but it's sometimes in the more neglected areas, where the council hasn't been bothered to spend the money covering them with tarmac!
Sometimes when the main roads are being resurfaced, they uncover the cobbles and the old tramlines. Wouldn't it be nice if they kept them!

LUXURY - where I come from the roads were (and still are) just dirt with stones sticking out of them. We dreamed of the day we could afford to live where there were cobbles*

Norwich is a very picturesque town with loads of history and winding streets.
Then, once you get into Dorset, Devon or Cornwall, really you can more or less take your pick! Lyme Regis if famously pretty. Dorchester. Clovelly must be one of the loveliest of the coastal villages and you can ride up and down on donkey taxis.
