    Trentinney Farm Holiday Cottages

    Hi everyone

    I am a new user here, just this minute signed up. By day I am a business application developer, it just so happens that my most recent business application is an Intranet with an ASP .NET MVC 3 front end.

    A friend asked me to develop a "family friendly" looking website for his farm. I am by no stretch of the imagination a "web designer" but in order to save him some money I agreed and this is the result


    Because I am practically a complete novice when it comes to web design I would really appreciate feedback, as I love to tinker with the site and make improvements.

    I hope to learn a lot of good stuff from you guys during my stay here

    The text at the bottom is too small for practical reading.

    Comic Sans Criminal, lol!
    You should really change the font - it spoils the whole feel. Otherwise, it's a good site. I like the cow and the background and the images. Makes me wanna come there!

    Oh, snazzy...

    A warm welcome, (you only need a cow tune to go with it, Stomping Tom Conners or something, but not seriously).

    It must be a family getaway for husband and wife, two and a half children, station van wagon, and Dalmatian!!!

    I wonder how many children have input in the family's vacation plans these days??

    The layout looks fine so far. It's not hard to read but I would suggest to stay away from the ComicSans font. Also, I would suggest looking at web design portfolio sites to have a better idea and inspiration on web design. But I appreciate the simplicity of it and the ease of navigation.
    great how to printing videos

    Thanks for the feedback. I posted a request on another web developer forum and didn't get a single reply.

    I am not 100% keen on the font myself, but not sure which font to use which will both look better and also look informal.

    Any suggestions?

    I've updated it, I chose "MS Serif"

    Here is the main page - Cornwall farm holidays
    And I also decided to change the CSS for one of the buildings called "The Roundhouse" which is focused more on couples wanting a Romantic Break rather than a family holiday.

    I'm pretty pleased that the redesign of the latter page was so easy with CSS, I can by no stretch of the imagination be classified as a website designer.
