About Colette Coleman


Hello and welcome to my website

The images and suggestions on this website are just a taster of the type of holiday I can book.

Many of the website pictures were taken on my own holidays and during my 20 year career in travel, so if these images inspire you who better to help with your holiday?

I run my own business as a fully bonded Travel Agent operating under the Hays Travel umbrella.

My office is in Pateley Bridge a beautiful town in the Yorkshire Dales.

In addition to my own adventures and my career in travel I have written two touring guidebooks, which have been translated into four languages.

It is this experience, and passion for travel, that I bring to my business. My contacts within the travel industry enable me to advise and book anything from a city break to a round the world adventure. I have booked holidays on every Continent. If you would like to read more about my career in travel and some of the countries I have visited follow this link. Expert Knowledge I really know my stuff!

Whatever your expectations or budget I have the experience, knowledge and a passion for travel that helps me put together holidays that will excite and inspire you. 

So why use a Travel Agent?

I really get to know my clients and their holiday preferences, many have become good friends. My clients just have to make one call and I use all my contacts to source and book their perfect holiday. I advise on destination, use my knowledge to bring it in on budget, and encourage my clients to visit new places and try new experiences. 

I am often asked if I charge a fee for my services and the answer is NO.

In fact I can match, and often beat many online holiday offers as I have contracts with most of the tour operators advertising online.

Let me take away the uncertainty of knowing which Internet company you are actually booked with.

Special Offers or Repeat Client Discounts are still passed to you when you book through a Travel Agent.

I speak to my customers at a time that suits them – no 0844 numbers or overseas call centre queues. You speak to me from start to finish. Once you head off on holiday I will always be on hand to help, no matter where you are. 

I am here to advise, recommend and talk through your plans in detail, ensuring you get the perfect holiday and within your budget.

I can book you onto a ready-made package, or tailor-make a holiday to your requirements and budget. You can choose to travel independently or join a group of like-minded travellers. 

Please call me on 01423 299023 or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I will contact you to chat about your plans.

Let me inspire you to go somewhere different or try something new!
