About Us


Barbara Hallwood together with Kate Gerbich are the founders of this lifestyle blog

With an initial focus on sharing their experiences with the people of Cheshire – the haleandbowdon blog was born.  Barbara and Kate  however quickly found that their passion for travel was shared by a far greater audience – and their followers  increased.

Barbara has spent many years travelling the world reviewing worldwide destinations.  In addition to this blog – she is Managing Director of Marketing Profile, a PR, Marketing & Events company based in Hale, Cheshire.

Kate has a wealth of experience in the travel industry including working on the BBC Holiday programme.

Barbara and Kate are always keen to hear from restaurants and hotels close to home but are more than happy to review properties further afield.
