Roo and Steve have built a fantastic holiday cottage conveniently located opposite the busy country house hotel Langar Hall. The cottage needed a website capable of showcasing the cottage and its environs, taking bookings and sharing reviews.
The site is linked to Twitter. Every news item automatically tweets. (@Langarnearhall) The booking system uses the award winning third party Free to Book service. The booking calendar and enquiries are managed off site leaving Roo to focus on stories and running the cottage. Payments can be either online through PayPal or offline by cheque or even cash. The booking system can be used by Roo to show bookings made by telephone or in person so that online guests can always see the actual availability of the cottage and not just bookings taken online.
Back in July the new cottage was visited by the Quality in Tourism team. I was so pleased for Roo and Steve that their holiday cottage was not only awarded 4 star status but also received a Gold Award.
A few months on from Roo taking over the site the cottage is booking regularly.
