Farncombe Estate

Helping a hotel chain relaunch their web estate.

The Challenge

Farncombe Estate needed to quickly (very quickly) rebuild and move their entire web estate to a new CMS and a new hosting platform. Although their old websites looked pretty good, they were very hard to update and maintain – something that is very important. Farncombe also wanted to build an on-going partnership to ensure that the new websites continue to look and work their best.

What we did

Due to the time constraints, we used the existing website design as a starting framework and made alterations and additions to create a clean and inviting design that could work across all 4 hotel websites. We worked efficiently, building one website first, then replicating it 3 times and making the required changes (rather than starting from scratch 4 times). We built the sites in a CMS that is natively very easy to use.

We continue to work with Farncombe on an on-going basis providing support and continued improvements on their websites.

What the client said

“We have been working with Herd for the past year (previously worked with a number of Herd’s team members for a lot longer) and I can’t recommend them highly enough. Their energy, creativity, efficiency in doing what they say they’re going to do, when they say they’re going to do it is a breath of fresh air. They have recently built and launched new websites for us which design wise look great as well as giving us easy to manage CMS functionality so we can easily update it ourselves. The team are fab, work with them, you won’t regret it!”
