Hello my name is Lindsay and I live in the village of Middleton Cheney with my 3 children and husband. We all love to travel!
I became a personal Travel Counsellor because quite simply I take pride in looking after my clients before/during and after their holiday. As I work from home, I can speak to my clients at a time that suits them, even if it is outside normal working hours. There are no office hours :)
I use award winning technology to tailor make holidays, with the support of a world leading, independent travel company. I provide a highly personal, unique and exceptional service, tailor-making holidays to suit each customer.
Every holiday I book is also 100% financially protected through the Travel Counsellors Trust.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. I would be delighted to help you with any future holidays or with any holiday advice.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-

Myself and 4 friends have just got back from Vidamar Resort Villas in Albufeira. We were celebrating my forthcoming big birthday (I am still only 39 1/2 so it doesn't count yet!) From the airport, it is 40 minutes in a taxi, much easier than using the transfer coach that stops everywhere. The villa we stayed in had 3 bedrooms and a private pool. It was perfect for the group and so well equipped you could easily go self-catering. There is a supermarket 10-minutes’ walk away that sells everything and Albufeira Old Town is only 10 minutes in a taxi, costing around 15...

My family and I went back to the Olympic Lagoon Resort in Paphos for 11 nights in the Easter holidays. We stayed there last year too and loved it; hence we went back, and we never go back to the same place! The hotel is spotless, you cannot fault it at all. The staff are all so helpful and friendly too. A few of them recognised us too which was lovely! Our 2 boys aged 12 and 9 loved the football coaching and then when this was over, they played matches with new friends. Our 5-year-old daughter went to the kid’s club...

I was lucky enough to be given a four night educational trip to Dubai from 7 May 2016. I have never been to Dubai but had sent many of my clients there and have always wanted to go. We flew from Heathrow with Qantas and got upgraded to business class! Wow what an experience, I have never flown anything but economy before. The crew were so friendly to all passengers and very chatty. We also saw the premium economy seats which were more than comfortable and the First Class seats which were amazing! Like having your own suite! We stayed for two...

Family holiday to Menorca in August 2014. Myself, my husband and three young children travelled from East Midlands to Mahon with Thomson Holidays for 11 nights in the sun! Great flight, and short which was a bonus when you have a baby on your lap! We had pre booked a taxi transfer to avoid hanging around and having a longer than necessary transfer. We stayed in Vista Blanes Apartments in Cala N Forcat. The apartment was clean but basic with a great view of the large pool. We soon got settled and enjoyed the freedom of self catering board. The resort is so family...

I was lucky enough to visit the 5* Intercontinental Aphrodite Hills for three nights at the beginning of April as part of an all-inclusive agent’s weekend (bliss with no children for four days!) We flew to Larnaca which is a one hour transfer to the resort, however if you fly into Paphos it is only a 15 minute transfer. On arrival at the hotel we had a lovely greeting from the receptionist and she took us to our room. The room was lovely with a massive bathroom, bed and loving area. We opened the patio doors and we have our own private...

In October 2011 we went on a family holiday to Dalyan in Turkey. I have sent many people to Dalyan, however never stayed there myself. I had been on a day trip to the mud baths before but that was it. We flew with Jet2 Airways from East Midlands, they were very good and the service was great. No delays! The taxi transfer from the airport was around 30 minutes, so perfect with a 2 and 5 year old! We stayed at the Sahin Apartments. The apartments are family run and are quite basic but very clean. The staff and owners...

As we have never cruised before we decided to try one of the P&O 2 night cruise to Bruges. We checked in at Southampton on Friday lunchtime and parked our car at the cruise terminal, this was around £30 for the 2 nights and it was definitely worth it! Getting on board was really easy and then we were ready to embark on our adventure! We could not get into our cabin until 3pm, which wasn’t a problem as they had already taken our suitcase at the terminal. The sun was shining, so we sat by the outdoor pool and soaked...

We travelled to Bulgaria with 2 children for 14 nights. The flights were with Wizz Air (low cost) from Luton. I have used them many times and they have always been great. We stayed at the Selena Hotel in Sozopol which is opposite a lovely beach and the promenade. The hotel was amazing and all the staff were so helpful. Bulgaria is getting more commercialised, however Sozopol is still very Bulgarian. There is no need to go any more than B&B because it is so cheap and the selection of restaurants is immense. A bottle of white wine in the local shop...

I have been lucky enough to visit Marbella for the weekend as part of the Travel Counsellors Annual Conference. I could not believe what gorgeous weather it was only 2 hours flight away! The skies were blue and it was around 22 degrees everyday! We stayed at the Guadalpin Marbella Hotel. It is a very modern, quite large hotel. The rooms all have kitchenette, which would be great for a family holiday. The hotel is around 200 metres from the beach promenade. This is where you will find lots of bars and restaurants, excellent place to watch the sun go down! I took...

I travelled to Borneo and Langkawi on 2005. Both places were amazing! I spent 4 nights in Borneo and 10 nights in Langkawi. In Borneo we stayed in the Shangri La Tanjung Aru. 4 nights was perfect as we saw the orangutans at the Shangri La Rasa Ria orphanage. That was really good! The time difference (+8 hours) really takes a few days to adjust to so we decided not to visit Sandakan as this would take a day out of our stay. In Langkawi we stayed at the Pelangi Beach Hotel in a sea view room. This hotel was also lovely!...

Lindsay has been so helpful and professional when dealing with my holiday arrangements at, i would guess, an extremely busy time. She took all the worry and anxiety out of my experience of loosing my Thomas Cook holiday. I have already recommended her to many of my friends and family.

Lindsay is fantastic. She really thought about what we wanted and provided us with plenty of options in all price ranges. I could have happily gone to any one of them. We booked our first choice, even though it was more expensive than we'd planned, and we are delighted to have booked through Lindsay.
