“We have worked extensively with Loyd & Townsend Rose.  They have the best castles and private homes, and they provide wonderful guides and all the other ground services one needs.  Great attention to detail, very creative, and so efficient.”

“Andrew, you are a pleasure to work with.  You are knowledgeable, have a great sense of humor, and are quick to respond to any and all requests.  My clients were delighted with the rental property we booked through you, and I have recommended you and your company to my fellow agents who are looking for wonderful service and high quality products.”

“It was our great pleasure to work with Andrew and his team.  We had a large family group of 32 that required significant coordination, varied activities and detail.  Andrew provided seamless management and exceptional recommendations for excursions, activities and entertainment.  Our family said it was their best vacation ever! Thank you for your extraordinary service and trip management!”

Loyd & Townsend Rose is a destination management company with over 20 years experience of working both with Travel Agents and directly with our clients, organizing all the ground services for travel in the UK and Ireland.  Whether it is a multi-generational family group or group of friends wanting to experience the ‘real’ Scotland, England, Ireland or Wales, we can offer truly unique experiences through our unparalleled destination knowledge.  We only work with the very best suppliers to ensure that every experience exceeds expectations. 

Jonathan Townsend Rose and Andrew Loyd have, in the past, been known as ‘The Castle Boys’.  They have built up over the years, excellent relationships with the castle and country house owners around the UK and Ireland, to ensure that their clients expectations are always met, and more often than not, exceeded.  We also work very closely with a number of boutique hotels and can find our clients some very special places to stay when we are event planning and organizing bespoke tours for them around the UK.  Nearly all of our clients are repeat or referral clients and we are very proud of this.  

As we know every castle and country house that we work with extremely well, once we have got to know the clients needs and requirements, we are able to advise them as to the most suitable venue for their vacation.  You can rest assured that this is where our years of local knowledge, provides us with the skill to ensure that we are the ideal DMC partner.   From this point, we can then arrange all the other activities and entertainment for the vacation to ensure that it is a truly bespoke and tailor-made itinerary.

    What exactly is a destination management company?

    A destination management company has event managers with expert local knowledge of their specific destination or destinations. They provide a ground service to their clients and are management experts in offering transportation, accommodation, restaurants, activities & excursions, evening entertainment such as special dinners, themed events etc. They can pass on preferential rates because of their relationship with their usual suppliers.

    Why can it be better to use a DMC rather than organizing everything yourself?

    Using a DMC can allow travelers to benefit from genuine local knowledge which will mean a more efficient, bespoke itinerary accessing ‘off the beaten track’ places and enjoying unique destination experiences. With such depth of knowledge of a destination, means that each itinerary is unique and special. We also keep up to day with latest developments and changes.
