I have worked for many retail travel agents over the years, followed by working from home as a Travel Agent after I became a mum for the first time. Then, 10 years ago both myself and Jon decided to start up Stanhope Travel, the best thing I ever did!

I love the way we are a small independent company, more like a family really, and we all work together and help each other out. As we are based in Stanhope, a small village in the Durham Dales we try to get involved in the community as much as possible. We work closely with schools in the area, and sponsor local events and charities.

I am a firm believer in customer service, and whether it be restaurant recommendations, hotel / room requests or tickets to a show, we are happy to do that little extra, having you leaving us feeling completely satisfied and hopefully for you to return to us year after year. Many come in as customers and leave as friends.

Also being a mum of two boys, one currently 20 and one 5 years old we have a lot of experience in family holidays and can recommend some fabulous destinations and hotels.
