LA SABLONNERIE, Little Sark, Channel Islands is this month’s prize giver. The winner of an Editor’s Choice Romantic award, this rose-covered, 16th-century farmhouse on a car-free island, continues to delight. With no TV and limited Wi-Fi, people come to read (and write), to watch the cormorants and puffins, to take sightseeing and fishing boat trips. There is no swimming pool – but no swimming pool could compare with a dip in the Venus rock pool.
Tyr Y Felin, St. Davids, Wales.

Simon Hur from Winchester is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at TWR Y FELIN, St Davids, Wales. A former temperance establishment built around an 1806 working windmill, it has had a multi-million-pound facelift. The architect owner has lavished loving care and attention to detail on the redesign. The bedrooms, decorated in shades of chocolate and white, have a safe, a mini-fridge and espresso machine, along with robes and slippers, aromatherapy toiletries.
