Girl Friday is a small business, created by myself Christine Coombes, operated from my home in Cirencester in the Cotswolds where I was born and bred.
My background over the years has mainly been in sales and customer service roles, and prior to the pandemic, I worked for several years in International tailor-made travel as an Africa Travel Specialist for the fantastic Audley Travel. Audley are renowned for the quality of the trips that they create, and for their outstanding commitment to customer service.
Having loved the planning of international holidays, right down to the last fine detail and, having experience in delivering outstanding customer service, I decided that I would create my own business, which would be aimed at offering the same level of detail and quality of service to those visiting the Cotswolds.
I needed to understand what people visiting the Cotswolds were looking for and spent some time working within a stunning private lake estate, The Lakes by Yoo close to the town of Fairford over the Summer of 2021.
It quickly became clear to me, that there was certainly a market for offering a full end-to-end holiday booking experience in the area.
GFC can assist with your holiday plans, right from the booking of accommodation to arranging taxis or chauffeurs, booking chefs, planning parties, simply getting in some shopping, or delivering one of our freshly prepared hampers.
Also, as part of our itinerates, we can arrange exciting activities, or simply book bikes or paddleboards. The end-to-end service we offer is designed to ‘take the work out of your holiday’ and is totally bespoke so that it's all tailor-made for you. That way, you can simply look forward to, and enjoy the time that you are in the Cotswolds.
Girl Friday Cotswolds is also aimed at providing a service to holiday homeowners and property management companies , who although have a properties to let, once they have the booking confirmed would prefer to hand over the detailed day-to-day planning and continued communication with the guest to someone else. Or, they may just want to use our holiday hamper, shopping and gift service.
I would love to hear from you, and please don't hesitate to contact me if you feel that I can assist you in any way.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Cotswolds
