Drupal Glamping Website Design
Located on a private farm in the Peak District, Edale Gathering offers a luxurious glamping experience for families, groups and wedding parties in an area of outstanding beauty.
In addition to four luxurious tented safari lodges, The Gathering also offers provides self-catering accommodation in their stunning Victorian shooting lodge.
Website Interface Design
The proprietors required a new website which would reflect the quality of their accommodation and convey the beauty of their location. They wanted to reduce the amount of text and scrolling required to navigate their existing website and to provide users with a more visually inspired experience to help them boost conversion rates. Having been impressed with our previous work for businesses in the glamping industry they approached us to see how we could help them achieve their goals.
We worked with the client to establish a new sitemap and then began the process of creating wireframes showing how the content would be displayed across all devices. Once the wireframes were confirmed we began creating high fidelity design proofs to show just how the site would look, starting with mobile first and working our way up to desktop.
The design was built around lots of high-quality images to create the maximum visual impact. It needed to be clean and contemporary and reflect the clients existing branding. After some minor revisions, the designs were all approved and we moved onto the development phase of the project.
We developed a bespoke easy to use Content Management System (CMS) using Drupal, to give the client greater control over the content and appearance of their website. The new CMS allowed them to update all pages with text and photography and create new pages as and when required.
We integrated the clients preferred booking system, displaying a live availability calendar on the site via an iframe and providing a seamless link through to the bookings provider for secure payments.
Once the development phase of the project was finished we tested the site across the most popular browsers and on iPhone and Android devices, then once both ourselves and Edale Gathering were 100% happy we were ready to launch the site!
