Bolthole Retreats: Online Luxury Holiday Rental

Helping a Leading Holiday Rental Company Grow.

How We’ve Helped Bolthole Retreats to Become a Leading Holiday Rental Company, through design, development and Digital Marketing.

Bolthole Retreats - Holiday Rental Company


Bolthole Retreats are a leading holiday rental company who began life in 2016 with just 2 rental properties. Since this time they’ve grown to over 50 luxury holiday rentals in the Cotswolds.


Since 2015 Bolthole Retreats have specialised in managing and renting luxury cottages in the Cotswolds. Their niche in luxury cottages and combination of online booking platforms has seen them grow rapidly and sustainably.

Bolthole Retreats needed an online platform that would ensure they could not only take online bookings, but it would be future-proofed for further growth.


  • We came on board to plan, design and build the Bolthole Retreats website, which resulted in a website that could take online bookings and allowed Bolthole Retreats to add more properties as the business grew
  • Further to the design and build of the website, the next phase was to begin developing further features to improve the user experience and ensure the design encouraged more people to book online
  • Armed with a solid platform for growth, we work with Bolthole Retreats on a monthly basis providing SEO and Social Media services to increase traffic to the site and brand awareness


  • With an established website and our digital marketing assistance Bolthole Retreats have experienced a huge 3270.78% increase in traffic from 2017-2018
  • Through UX design and ongoing website development, we’ve seen a 467% increase in the number of conversions (online bookings).
