Presenter - Danni Menzies

Whether she is racing in muddy tracks for Car and Country or interviewing big name designers backstage at London Fashion Week Danni is always the first to dive into a challenging situation. 

Having grown up in the Scottish village of Kenmore, which is very much in 'the sticks’, Danni loves nothing more than being up to her knees in mud surrounded by the beautiful countryside.

From an early age Danni was involved with her family business, which over the years grew with her. What started out as a caravan park and old farm buildings set on a 120 acre estate now boasts nearly 50 buy-to-let holiday houses, a golf course, riding stables (which Danni founded,) a bar, restaurant and delicatessen. 

Property development became a part of Danni’s life before she even knew it. She loves nothing more than brainstorming development ideas with her dad, or getting stuck into the interior design with her mum.

As well as being involved in property development, Danni had her first home-buying experience age 21 in Edinburgh which was a valuable experience - especially as it didn’t go exactly to plan.

Since moving south of the border to pursue her presenting career, Danni has settled in south west London, where she hopes to invest in a new home in the near future. 

Danni has presented T-in the Park, London Fashion Week and hosted a Walk the Walk charity event to a live audience of 17,000 people! She has interviewed the likes of Rita and Labyrinth, made pilots at Radio 1 and is the co-host of Car and Country

Danni is incredibly excited to be a part of the A Place in the Sun team working on something that's a natural passion for her.

Her parents now want her help finding their very own place in the sun, and she's very happy to be able to give them firsthand advice!
