Being English Riviera locals we wish to fly the flag proudly (and our beaches have got more than enough blue flags to fly) after having built up and managed a very successful holiday business in Thailand. There's no better place to be proud of than home, and in Torbay and Totnes we have certainly got good reason to be.
Can you tell us a bit about yourselves?
I’m Danny, the Director, and I am from Torquay, the Jewel in the Crown of the English Riviera; Jasmine, my daughter, is looking after the finance and marketing; and Leah, my sister-in-law and our Operations Manager, is organising our day to day activities. I should also mention my brother, Matt, who is taking care of our photography, social media and all things artistic and inventive as well as our IT.
