Forgotten Houses holiday rentals web design

A holiday rentals web design with online booking with WordPress.

Web Design for Holiday Lettings Business, responsive design


Forgotten houses are a holiday rentals agency providing holiday homes in Cornwall, Ireland and Wales.

The Challenge

The existing website was very old and difficult to update, Helen had to rely on a web developer even when making the smallest changes. Forgotten Houses provide online booking via a specialist provider and these pages also needed to be fully customised to match their main website. The outdated structure was not search engine friendly or suitable for mobile devices. The brief was to provide a website to showcase the properties, increase sales and reduce the delay in getting changes done.

The Solution

The new holiday rentals web design makes it easy for visitors to find the perfect property for them. SEO work carried out to ensure a better ranking in Google. Home page features such as full width image slider and featured properties, showcase the quality of the holiday houses. Customised calls to action buttons and boxes blend with the theme and stand out to encourage visitors to view more/book etc. The main font is modern with the more traditional Georgia used for titles. Built on WordPress for content management and easy editing.
