"Nell Barrington’s professionalism and extensive experience in the area of tourism made her an obvious choice of consultant when we were rebranding and refocusing our tourism business. She helped to give us vital guidance which helped us to develop our successful future direction."

Marianne Williams (previous owner),

East Lambrook Manor Gardens,


 “Nell delivered two training days to our senior managers on marketing, brand and identity and succeeded in inspiring a group of people for whom these were relatively alien concepts. Nell made sure that she understood enough about our area of business – one she wasn’t familiar with - before the training, and managed to pitch it absolutely perfectly. We would be more than happy to work with Nell again in the future, and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her wholeheartedly to others.”

Steve Jones, Somerset County Council



"Nell proved a very efficient and wonderfully easy person to work with, she did all the work we agreed for a very reasonable price, her expertise was invaluable."

Pippa, Proprietor of Dove House, Dorset



"Nell Barrington has considerable expertise in the sustainable tourism field and has led several successful marketing and product development initiatives that have added tremendous value to the South Somerset tourism offer - such as the Local Food Festival, cycle routes and equestrian tourism. Nell understands and works exceedingly well with the tourism business community, having set and managed several networks of attractions, accommodation, and specialist creative industries."

Martin Woods, Assistant Director, South Somerset District Council,  


"Nell supported the Community Council for Somerset with a very short notice piece of work which had extremely tough targets. Before agreeing to do the work Nell assessed the brief and came back with suggestions and recommendations of how she could best support us. I had confidence she understood what we needed. Nell was extremely professional and delivered impressive results."

Sarah McKean, Community Development Manager, Community Council for Somerset


“Tailor made training developed taking into account the particular requirements of our organisation and the level of participants. Executed in a professional manner to a very high standard that kept the participants motivated and engaged. I would recommend to any organisation large or small, high quality training at affordable prices”.

Dawn Graham, Manager, Somerset LD Domiciliary Services


"Thank you so much for yesterday and for all your hard work for co-ordinating the day, most of which has been above the call of duty. It was a huge success and a well attended afternoon, I have yet to read the feedback forms but interest is already good for the progression course."


CoVE Manager Tourism & Hospitality. Claire Branson
