Responsive Web Design

Simple and effective

What is a Responsive Website?

Put simply, responsive designs allows every user, no matter what device they’re using, to enjoy a consistently usable browsing experience.

This means that all functions should work and behave consistently on whatever device they are displayed on. For example; on a typical holiday accommodation website, everything from social sharing buttons, to enquiry forms, navigation menus and booking systems - everything should perform in the same manner.

Most importantly, you shouldn't need to "pinch out" your screen to enlarge the text, you should be able to easily read the website page text without needing to do anything to the screen.  Content should be easily digestible and legible on any device in order to make the end user experience enjoyable.


Typically, there are four screen types:
1. Mobile, 2. Tablet, 3. Desktop, 4. Laptop


"In this blog post Google say that mobile friendliness will have "a significant impact" on search engine results."

Do You Need a Responsive Website?

You certainly do. There’s no doubt at that.

A quick look at the data provided by products such as Google Analystics will reveal the large number of people who visit your website via mobile or tablet device. Providing them with a positive viewing experience is key to securing their business going forward. Not to mention, but the easier it is to book or enquire with you, the more likely they’ll do it.

Additionally Google has stated multiple times that responsive design is their preferred mobile configuration. And the tech giant has been updating its search algorithms to favour websites that work well on mobile devices. The algorithm will take into account various criteria including text size, the amount of space between links and whether or not the content fits across a mobile screen.

In a nutshell; if your website is NOT responsive / mobile friendly, you will lose visitors who visit it, and Google and other search engines will start to not include your website in search results.

Sarah and Chloe at Web Design for Accommodation made the creation of our website a completely stressfree experience and the end result is superb! We have received lots of positive feedback on the new site and both have been very supportive and always respond if I need any help editing. Thank you for turning our copy and pictures into reality! We will be using them again to create two more websites later this year.

Lesley McFadyean -

Our new website is amazing. The whole process from our initial enquiry was smooth flowing and our website is even better than we imagined. Communication with Web Design for Accommodation was excellent. Our ideas for colour schemes, layout, function and material for every part of our website were taken into consideration and have become reality. Any slight adjustments were made quickly and accurately. I never had to repeat a request nor try to describe again what we needed...
I have already recommended Web DFA and will continue to do so. We could not be more delighted. I keep visiting our beautiful new website just because I I am entranced by it. Thank you so much.

Julie-Anne Trafford - Corsham Farmhouse

Although I run a tour company rather than a B&B, Web Design for Accommodation were happy to set up my new web site. Throughout the process i found them so easy to deal with. They were extremely patient and helpful. I am very pleased with the end product and have received a lot of compliments. More importantly, we are picking up a lot more online enquiries. I could not recommend this company more highly.
