We were approached by Orchard Lodge to create a responsive website design for their newly refurbished, pet-friendly bed and breakfast. In the initial website meeting we spoke about the demographic of their intended customer – they were looking to attract a younger age group and aim their clientele more towards walkers, dog lovers and general lovers of the outdoors.
The main branding of the business is another project that we recently undertook, read more here. The site was based around this new brand – moving away from the staid blue and red theme that the previous owners had and taking the site in a more ‘natural’ direction using lush greens and pale, creamy yellows.
The site is relatively simple, basing the structure on the existing content – but including new pages tailored towards keywords specific to that of the new site’s aim. As part of this, we also integrated their choice of booking system into the site.
All of the pages have been optimised to work well on all devices, whether being viewed on a desktop, tablet or a mobile phone.
Andrew and Lucinda were very happy with the end result and gave us a fantastic testimonial:
“The guys have done a fabulous job and we are incredibly grateful to them. We are really pleased with the website and everyone we speak to who has seen it thinks it looks amazing. Within 2 hours, we had a booking through it and 24 hrs later, a dog friendly booking as well.”
