Scope of work



As a long standing client who has relied on our hosting environment for many years we were able to transfer over to the new site seamlessly.

Web Design

A luxurious retirement home with views over Morecambe Bay, The Thorns wanted a design which matched the high standard they offer their residents.


We built the site using a WordPress Content Management System so that The Thorns could effectively manage content going forward.

The Thorns


The Thorns, is a retirement home with stunning views over Morecambe Bay, which prides itself on offering a high standard of care in a luxurious setting. With a website which was over 12 years old, it was felt it was time for a change in The Thorn’s online presence in order to appeal in the digital era.
The discussion around who would be looking at care homes online, what all they would expect to find out about the residential home online and the different generations they were trying to appeal to was important. A life-changing time for many, any website to represent The Thorns would have to be sensitive to this fact.


Our Solution

The Thorns already had fitting branding and had recently taken professional photography of the residential home, Hest Bank and the surrounding Morecambe Bay area. This meant that we could design a website around The Thorns and their image. We built a WordPress website which we felt put The Thorns across at it’s best – a peaceful surrounding offering their residents a home which simply echoes the sign they have on their door ‘Our residents do not live in our workplace, we work in their home.’

What has stood out is how pleased The Thorns have been with their new site. They can update content independently and use it as a tool to update family from further afield on what the people who are most important to them have been up to. It has also resulted in The Thorns receiving more enquiries as finally they can show online what makes them that little more special


“Excellent prompt service. Good up to the minute imaginative ideas which created a very good end product. We have seen a marked increase in enquiries since the inception of the new website. Thanks Darren and Eilidh
