Uphill Manor is a unique Bed and Breakfast “hotel” set in the village where I grew up, in Somerset. The Manor is a very traditionally run business with only 5 rooms available per night; all encompassed in a beautiful building dating back to 1805, with fantastic surrounding gardens.
I originally created a website for Uphill Manor back in 2007 whilst still at School and only just learning the basics of website creation. Some 6 years later and the owners returned to me for a refresh of the site including a new design and new photography. This project really shows my complete set of skills; digital design, web development and photography. Since the owners prefer to talk personally to their guests, either on the phone or via email, there was no need for an online booking system. The whole site is built entirely on WordPress to allow for easy maintainability for future updates.
I took all of the photographs that are displayed within the site and had complete creative freedom over the stylistic nature of them.
WordPress Content Management System
The site is built on WordPress to allow the owners of the Manor to update the content and add new content. One feature that the owners were very interested in, is the ability to add testimonials and comments from guest to the website.
