During the late part of 2020 I was asked to redevelop a website by Clare, owner of Holmebeck Shepherd Huts. Clare had a website already, one which she had set up herself using one of the template “out of the box” sites. This website had served Clare well for a number of years but like so many business owners, she wanted to focus on her business, rather than struggle updating her website.
Extending the functionality of the website was another key aim. Being able to book holidays and short stays directly from a mobile phone or laptop is an expectation of anyone looking to book their “staycation” especially during the pandemic we found ourselves thrust into in 2020.
Clare had some wonderful images, taken by her friend, Sarah Caldecott, Photographic Coordinator for The Northern Echo. She also had some drone video footage. Using the wonderful images and video and embedding a booking and payment system is now helping Clare to market the beautiful Shepherd’s Hut.
I was able to visit Holmebeck for one of the included training and tuition sessions in September 2020 and can say it was so beautiful, so peaceful and really is the perfect spot for a romantic “away from it all” break.
