As digital partner for Ramside Estates we have worked on a number of large scale projects that have focussed on not only improving the customer experience and increasing revenue but giving the individual businesses the ability to take control of their site and deliver content across the group quickly and easily.


Ramside Spa

The Ramside Spa is one the foremost luxury spas in Durham. Based at Ramside Hall the spa has five pools including one of the UK’s largest hydrotherapy pools and an outdoor infinity pool, as well as a state-of-the art gym. We were tasked with creating a simple, clean website as an extension to the Ramside Hall site. The result significantly increased one off spa bookings as well as increasing the membership over time.

Colonel Porters

Botanical gardens, a rhum bar and secret bars Colonel Porters has to be one of the quirkiest bars in the North East. We were tasked with designing the website to show off the best it has to offer. With a bit of animation and great photography you certainly know you are in for an experience.

Impeccable Pig

An impressive new development from Ramside Estates with a 130-seater restaurant and 10 rooms, the impeccable pig has proven a huge success. The website was built using the same platform for all Ramside sites whilst integrating booking systems for both tables and rooms.

Hardwick Live

The biggest music festival in the North East, impressive acts, a relaxed atmosphere and it never rains, what more could you ask for. We were tasked with building both the marketing website and the e-commerce system for handling ticket sales. With incredible responses to radio adverts our platform stayed live throughout ensuring a high return on advertising spend and a seamless process for customers.
