User centered design with a focus on making the journey from search to enquiry as simple as can be

Independent Cottages are based in Meopham, Kent, and provide a large choice of independently owned self catering accommodation in the UK. The company is different from their competition in that they do not charge a booking fee.


The brief

With over 1500 properties on their books Steve and Sarah Jarvis contacted Luno to help them create a website design that was modern and easy to navigate.

As a developer, web marketing consultant and business analyst Steve Jarvis has worked with us in the past on projets here at Luno.

For this project we designed a number of screens that followed an agreed corporate language style. This project concentrated solely on the UX design as Steve then interpreted our designs into a custom coded website.

Project highlights:

  • UX focused design
  • Intelligent accommodation search (programmed by Steve Jarvis)
  • County guides
  • Icon designs for key information
  • Custom calendar design

With Garry’s help, enthusiasm and professionalism, we developed a holiday cottage website that was ranked higher than AirBnB, Homeaway and Booking[dot]com by Which? Magazine. Impressive stuff.
