Holiday cottages website

Holiday cottages website design and marketing

Paul and Angela had recently acquired a holiday cottages business in Herefordshire and needed to update their website.

The website was well designed visually, but was very slow making the user experience (UX) difficult and damaging bookings. They also wanted it to emphasise ‘dog-friendly’.

They needed someone they could trust, whilst they learned to manage the site and booking system themselves. Having seen the work completed for another propoerty rentla site, HappenOak treehouse, they asked me to speed up the site and help them learn how to manage it.

I moved the site to new hosting, removed unnecessary WordPress plugins that were slowing the site down and renamed key landing pages to improve search performance.

After initial reorganisation and upgrade of the site, I support the owners as they manage all day-to-day operations themselves.
