New site for Shepherd's Hut in the Lake District


The Client

Local farm offering holiday accommodation in a shepherd's hut.

The Journey

The client's farm is the other side of the fields, which she owns, that are opposite my house. For the initial meeting she visited my office after tramping through the fields in her wellies!

After the meeting the client submitted ideas for the layout and some content. She also had a browse through some royalty free images and picked a couple of sketches that she liked for use in the banner design.

I designed a fairly simple site, with a photo gallery on the home page and I managed to get her added to Google maps.

The client decided to use the Freetobook online booking system which I integrated with the site.

She did well on the search engines after the site went live, due in part to the fact that shepherd's huts were only just becoming fashionable and we were a step ahead of the game with the search engine optimisation. Her google maps entry still shows at the top of the listing for 'shepherds hut lake district' (October 2023).
