Liz Beaty

Liz has been working in the family business for 30 years and is responsible for the day to day running of the company along with being very “hands on”. Booking holidays and assisting customers in the office, working with the rest of the team to provide the best possible service. Liz has travelled all over the world but due to work & family commitments has a long list of places she would like to visit when time allows! Liz doesn’t always work traditional office hours so if you have a query in the evening or over the weekend, just send an email and if she can, she will get back to you ASAP.


Shannon joined our team in January 2018. She is also our youngest member of staff, and has recently completed her training to receive her travel qualifications.

Sue has worked in the travel industry for just under 32 years. She previously worked in the Thomas Cook store in Penrith from when she left school until September 2019. She enjoys all aspects of her job and she has made great friendships throughout the years. One of her favourite destions over the years is Florida. Not just for Orlando and its theme parks, but for its fantastic beaches - Sarasota and Siesta Key in the Gulf of Mexico being her favourites. Sue works 2 days in the office and 1 day from home and can be contacted by appointment, email or her work mobile.


Laura has worked in the travel industry for 19 years. She started as a modern apprentice and has worked in a management role. Laura has been to the Maldives, Mexico and the Caribbean including Barbados, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Cuba. She has also been to many European destinations and cruised for the first time this year too.
