London-based Butler has been immersed in the U.K. and Ireland hospitality world ever since winning a coveted student internship at Thomas Cook decades ago. Her clients, often ultra-high-net-worth travelers, rely on her to plan one-of-a-kind experiences—many of which, too exclusive to divulge here—but she’s just as comfortable planning a modest family vacation or a quiet country getaway.
Trends Butler is noticing in British Isles travel? Ireland, always popular, is growing even more so, from city stays in Dublin to a tour of the Guinness family’s personal farm. Stately manor hotels are opening up in quieter parts of England: the Newt and Shatwell House in Somerset; Thyme, in the Cotswolds; Yorkshire’s Grantley Hall. And clients are more and more interested in sustainability, from plastic-free stays and ways to reduce food waste to social responsibility efforts, including donations to local organizations all along the route.

"I used Nicola Butler and her Noteworthy team to host my family for a two-week trip to England last summer. On a scale of 1 to 10, the trip was a 12! The itinerary was terrific. Our guides were incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and charismatic. The entire process is a memory we will forever cherish." - H.R.
