THE STAR CASTLE, St Mary’s, Scilly Isles is this month’s prizegiver. With epic views across to Tresco and Bryher, this historic 16th century castle hotel welcomes guests with excellent seafood, comfortable bedrooms and friendly staff. Guests enjoy island-hopping, swimming with seals and a scenic golf course said to be the loveliest in the UK. The old stone-walled dungeon is now a bar and some of the bedrooms are in the original 16th century fortification built in the age of Sir Francis Drake.

We welcome reports on places that have never been in the Guide or have been omitted, as well as those that have a current entry.
