Good places to stay

This list is not sponsored. These are places we have stayed at and have been very happy that we have. Its likely that everyone staying at these places will also be very pleased with their choice, but I cannot, of course, except any responsibility if this isn't entirely the case.
I've listed the year we stayed; for those a few years back you may wish to check its still the same people.
