With over 400 Cornish cottages spanning the length and breadth of Cornwall, holidaymakers are sure to find the perfect getaway thanks to Cornwalls Cottages. Whether it’s a rural retreat in the heart of Cornwall or a beach holiday on the Cornish coast, Cornwalls Cottages has a wide range of holiday homes, cottages, farmhouses and barn conversions available to hire.
We were contacted by Cornwalls Cottages who were in need of a brand new website that would showcase their 400 spectacular rental properties and give their overall online presence a boost. Cornwalls Cottages were also keen to incorporate an interactive map of Cornwall on the new site that would highlight local attractions and places of interest in relation to their rental properties. There was also a requirement for the new site to have a visually appealing design that allows for high-quality imagery together with an integrated booking system.
The outcome – a beautiful, custom-designed website that provides visitors with a seamless booking experience, thanks to a number of enhanced features.
By working closely with Cornwalls Cottages, we created a design that allows high-quality images to be displayed, together with the ability to add detailed descriptions of the facilities and location of each property. Integrated SuperControl booking has also been incorporated into the site, giving visitors an effortless experience when checking availability and making reservations for their holiday. To further enhance the user experience, live chat has also been built into the site, giving holidaymakers the chance to speak directly to a member of the Cornwalls Cottages team. The custom-built interactive map gives holidaymakers an easy to use tool for planning their trip to Cornwall with holiday cottages with places to eat, visitor attractions, beaches and more are all clearly pinpointed. It also allows users to see live changes to the results as they change their search parameters.Take a look
The bespoke search page allows customers to not only search for cottages based on their location, attributes, and the number of bedrooms. But also the attractions that are close by, with pins for beaches, restaurants, and other more iconic places like the Eden Project. Changes to the search parameters are presented the user immediately, and there is no need for the user to refresh; making it quicker for customers to find their perfect holiday.
Cottages are managed and maintained through SuperControl. SuperControl is an online property management system that we have worked with several times in the past. SuperControl allows the user to input information about the cottages, add images, and a lot more. They also manage the bookings and availability of the cottages.
"Our site was not an off-the-shelf system and took a great deal of time and effort to get right, but we are very happy with the end result and would definitely recommend gloversure for any SuperControl integrated websites."
