Daniel Bradnam

As someone who has been involved with travel for many years, creating beautiful trip itineraries is a true passion of mine. I was born and raised near Cambridge in England, I am proud to call the United Kingdom my home, and I truly put my heart and soul into providing unforgettable adventures for our customers when visiting our beautiful island.

My passion also comes with a very professional service, and I pride myself on being responsive, efficient and effective as I understand the importance of this to our customers. I have travelled to many destinations across the world, with a particular focus on European countries and extensively throughout the United Kingdom. I have lived for some time living in Italy as well as all over England.

With my knowledge of the United Kingdom and Ireland and experience in the travel industry, any tailor-made adventure you can dream of is possible with enough imagination and organisation.

10 nights in New Orleans. Experiencing Jambalaya, the French Quarter, the trams, and the Creole culture. And of course, jazz music being played in the streets.

Your most annoying travelling habit?

Waking up too early everyday with excitement for the day ahead, just ask my travel companions!

What 5 things do you always travel with?

An open mind, comfortable clothes, sunglasses, a camera and a credit card!

What is on your bucket list?

Whilst I have been to many parts of Scandinavia, I have not yet found the time to travel up there and stay in an ice hotel. That is on my list!

You are stranded on a desert island with 2 famous people, who are they?

Tom Hanks and his volleyball friend Wilson. Hopefully, he picked up a thing or two when filming the movie Castaway!

 

My Favourite Destination

The UK has countless breath-taking locations to visit. My favourite is the naturally beautiful region of Cornwall in England. Over the many years I have been visiting this region I’ve enjoyed lots of amazing experiences, such as, hiking the Lizard Walk whilst taking in the rugged coastlines, surfing off the coast of Polzeath, eating at Rick Stein’s restaurant in Padstow, visiting the Eden Project’s rainforest and tasting English sparkling wine at the Camel Valley Vineyard. Cornwall caters to both the need for adventure and desire to relax. Every visit, the unspoilt sea views and quaint fishing villages take me back in time.

Daniel's Recommendations

Throughout my travels there are some experiences and memories which stand out. I would like to share these recommendations with you for some travel inspiration..

  • Kylemore Abbey

    Favorite Island - Ireland

    For me, a close second to the United Kingdom is the beautiful island of Ireland. Made up of Northern Ireland in the north and the Republic of Ireland in the south one could spend a lifetime exploring this island. At a glance, some great locations in the north include Belfast and the impressive Giants Causeway, as well as Bushmills whiskey distillery. In the south, head east for Dublin, Wicklow, Glendalough, Kilkenny, Wexford and Waterford. And head west for Killarney, the Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry, Limerick and the Cliffs of Moher. And to enjoy one of Ireland’s smaller islands I can personally recommend the Aran Islands.

  • Crestow House

    Favorite Hotel - Crestow House

    Located in the intimate village of Stow-on-the Wold in the heart of the Cotswolds, Crestow House is a luxury boutique hotel set within a beautifully restored Victorian manor house. Perfectly located to enjoy one of the most beautiful areas of England; the Cotswolds. And great locations not far beyond such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, Bath and Stonehenge. Stow-on-the-Wold itself is a small market town with many little quaint shops and a couple of great pubs for a good evening meal.

  • York Minster

    Favorite City - York

    York is a smaller city, in the north of England. This city makes a great stop when travelling from London to Edinburgh. Steeped in history, evidence suggests that people settled in the region of York as far back as between 8000 and 7000 BC. As well as many pubs, bars and restaurants, York boasts the impressive York Minster, the Shambles medieval street, the ancient city walls and even a chocolate factory!

  • Favorite Winery - Camel Valley Vineyard Cornwall

    My favourite winery in Cornwall, England and anywhere on the plant is the Camel Valley Vineyard near the town of Bodmin in the great country of Cornwall. Set in its own microclimate the Camel Valley offers International award-winning English wines. The family-run estate has been operating since 1989 and offer fabulous tours throughout the year, which I can highly recommend. The Pinot Noir Rosé Brut sparkling is my favourite.
