What do you do at Orion Holidays?

I am the founder/Managing Director and still love doing what I do!  My job is essentially to oversee everything and ensure our owners properties are managed to the highest possible standard and that our holiday rental guests have the best possible time.  We understand that we are dealing with people’s valuable leisure time, which we know is very precious to them!

 

What’s going on in your photo?

I enjoy flying as it’s a good release from the challenges of running a business; this photo was taken when I flew to Lee on Solent for the day.

 

What do you love about the Cotswolds?

It’s a beautiful part of the country, I love the scenery, walking and being by the water.  From a business perspective, the Cotswolds is an ideal base for us to operate as it has easy to access for our guests, being about 20 minutes from both the M4 and M5, making it ideal for family get-togethers.

 

What’s at the top of your bucket list?

I have to say that I am pretty content at the moment!  I have achieved one of my long term goals of learning to fly a Gyroplane, but two others that spring to mind are to spend time travelling around Europe with my wife and cockapoo in our motor home and fly a Gyroplane to the Isles of Scilly!
