NMA Site Inspection

Farm & Cottage Holidays site awarded 84/100

Will Cooper is very complimentary about the Farm & Cottage Holidays' website in this week's NMA. We're very pleased to say that the site was awarded a respectable 84/100.

This is a great example of team work with our client. The aim was to ensure that every detail of a particular holiday was presented in a meaningful and intuitive way and this review confirms our thinking. We hope that the site inspires you to holiday in the South West too.

A big congrats to the team at Farm & Cottage Holidays and everyone involved in the project at Yucca.

"Having once spent a miserable few days on a rainy holiday in Devon, I was intrigued to see if this site could spark any remnants of enthusiasm I might have towards what’s clearly a beautiful part of the country.

It’s essentially a property listings site for holiday and farm cottages in the South West, but offers something far more comprehensive. It’s a fantastic-looking, content-rich experience, with use of photos and colour lulling you into that tranquil feeling you hope to achieve when on holiday. You can search by almost any criteria, including whether the cottage has a sea view, a hot tub and even, perhaps most importantly, whether it’s within a mile of a pub. It does lack a facility to search on price, although you can sort results by cost.

Each cottage has a detailed profile page with great photos and information on the local area. In fact, it’s the destination guides that really make the site stand out. Every town of reasonable size, and some smaller destinations, has a guide and links to nearby cottages. It’s this attention to detail that makes you want to book."
