Gorgeous Cottages – Meet the Team!

Christina Brion – Managing Director

Christina Brion - Gorgeous Cottages

Originally from Northern Ireland, Christina moved to Yorkshire many moons ago as an English undergraduate at Leeds University. Inspired by the stunning landscapes of Yorkshire and with a love of all things luxury, she launched Gorgeous Cottages in 2012 with just a handful of cottages and a desire to do something different. As well as the business, Christina is kept busy by her two young daughters Poppy & Florence. Find out more about Christina here.

Phil Brion – Operations Director

Phil Brion - Gorgeous Cottages

Phil joined the team in 2017, coming on board as Operations Director. Yorkshire born and bred, Phil is responsible for maintaining our close owner relationships and ensuring everything runs as smoothly as possible for our guests. When he’s not in the office or looking after the kids, Phil can be found cycling across Yorkshire or sampling a local ale or two.

Marion Burns – Booking Manager

Marion Burns

If you’ve booked with us over the last few years, chances are you’ll have spoken to Marion our Bookings Manager. Marion is a bubbly larger-than-life character who enjoys nothing more than a chat and a giggle with our Guests. Mother to 3 grown up boys, Marion is also a Foster Carer, dog-lover (particularly Great Danes) and all round good egg! Here she is having a little cuddle with one of the wallabies at Thorp Perrow…

Mark Davis – Photographer

Mark Davis

Mark has been working with Gorgeous Cottages almost since our launch and has been the width and breadth of Yorkshire for us. Recently featured alongside Michael Portillo in the BBC’s Great Railway Journeys, Mark is an Author, historian and award-winning photographer with a fascination for the lost world of Victorian Britain. He does an amazing job with our properties and we’re thrilled to have him in the team.

Louise Brion – Booking Agent

Louise Brion

It was a pleasure to welcome Louise into our Gorgeous family. Working towards an Accountancy qualification in her spare time, Louise is our super-bright youngster who does a sterling job of looking after our guests.

Julie Jones – Business Development Manager

Once Manager of a High Street Bank, Julie is responsible for getting out and about to meet with Owners and other Yorkshire businesses across the region. Having spent almost a year down in Cornwall we’re delighted Julie decided to return to her roots up North. Sharing a passion for Yorkshire and as a great believer in ‘doing things right’ Julie is the perfect fit for our Gorgeous team.

Julie Smith – Marketing Manager

Julie Smith, Gorgeous Cottages

Yes I know it is confusing having two Julies on the team but Julie Smith has worked in Marketing for more years than she would care to remember and now looks after the Gorgeous Cottages Social Media, Newsletters and Blogs.  She loves a trip to the Yorkshire Coast (particularly when it is sunny) and is pictured here relaxing at The Potting Shed.

Maureen Ovington, Booking Agent

Maureen is a former Gorgeous Cottages guest who loved staying in our cottages so much that she decided to join the team! Maureen’s last cottage holiday was to The Hay Barn with a group of friends and she loves walking, dining at Yorkshire restaurants and relaxing in a hot tub (don’t we all)!

So now you know the team behind Gorgeous Cottages, take a look at what you can book with us! Gorgeous Yorkshire Cottages

  1. Hello The Gorgeous Cottages Team,
    My fiance and I have fallen in love with your Colgote Cottage as we would love to book a weeks stay Friday October 14th but we went to book it and we see that you allow two dogs.The thing is is that we have four but are small.We have two cavalier king charles.a little english bull terrier and a maltese as small as a mouse lol.They are all very well trained and very good.We were wondering if you would be so very kind and allow us to come and stay at your beautiful cottage.It is just what we are looking for?
    I await your reply with anticipation
    Thanking you

    Hi Clare,

    I’ve spoken to Marion several times over the last couple of years and yes she’s bright & bubbly and more importantly very helpful. Great to see the faces behind the names. Great team, great cottages and great to deal with. What more could you ask for. Think we might try & do two holidays next year. So jealous of Julie reclining in the Potting Shed, that was this years holiday at end of August & I have to say first class, from the first phone call to Marion through to leaving at the end of the holiday.
    Well done Gorgeous Cottages.
