Cool Places is the brain child of two pretty cool people!
Jonathan Knight set up Punk Publishing which became known for its hugely successful camping books. The first book, Cool Camping England, became a travel bestseller
Martin Dunford is the co-founder of Rough Guides – a leading publisher of travel and reference information known for its ‘tell it like it is’ attitude.
Together they created Cool Places where you’ll find more unique, quirky and independent places to stay in the UK than any other site.
Focusing solely on the UK, they want us to rediscover what this amazing country is about and they’re on a mission to get city dwellers into the country and country folk exploring towns!
This week we’ve been speaking to Amy who has been with Cool Places since its creation. Amy is the marketing manager who looks after the user reviews and keeps their site up to date with the latest information.
Amy grew up in Camden, London and now lives in a small village between Cardiff and Swansea in South Wales. She says this is her favourite place to be as she has access to beautiful beaches and countryside from her doorstep.
We can relate to that as we love where we live too! Right in the heart of the Cotswolds, hidden away in our Secret Cottage and surrounded by breath taking scenery.
We’ve teamed up with Cool Places to launch an exciting competition. You could win a pair of tickets for our Cotswold Tour, along with bed and breakfast at the Kingham Plough.
