Member of the Month – Gail


Meet Gail, owner of Pack Holidays and our Digital Boost Member of the Month! 🥳

Gail joined us at the start of 2023 and we’ve loved seeing her business grow since then. She’s gone from strength to strength, and as a team of dog lovers 🐾, we’ve loved seeing Pack Holidays grow into an amazing business thanks to Gail’s passion and energy 🥰

We caught up with Gail to find out more about her business journey and how mentoring has helped her on that journey 🚀

Tell us a little bit about your business

I own Pack Holidays, a dog friendly holiday rental company with cottages in Norfolk, Scotland and The Peak District. I was inspired to start my business as I have three dogs and finding truly dog welcoming properties where dogs are catered for, allowed everywhere in cottages and are welcomed, rather than tolerated, were few and far between. So I decided to do it myself in 2016 ….and here we are now!

Mentoring has helped Gail to grow Pack Holidays into a great success!


What’s your favourite thing about being a small business owner?

Flexibility and people!

Let’s chat about your business journey…

I started with one cottage (my own) and have grown organically since 2016. Key recipe for success and repeat business is EXCELLENT customer service, excellent products and genuine customer care every step of the way.

What made you decide to join Digital Boost?

To hopefully help others and to learn from others too

And finally, what’s been the proudest moment with your business?

The demand exceeding supply in a difficult market this year

Gail came to Digital Boost through our friends at Small Business Britain and we’re so happy that they introduced us to Gail!

We’re so inspired by Gail’s story and we love the passion that she’s brought to her business – we can’t wait to see even more holiday lets join the Pack Holidays family 🥳
