A user’s opinion
I found you online by using Google as a search engine and typed in Accommodation in Exmoor, loads of sites came up, but on the right hand side of the screen were some suggested sites, the first being www.exmoor-accommodation.co.uk, I found this to be a very user friendly site, with a choice of B&B, Guest Houses, Self Catering or Inns. I knew we wanted to stay in an Inn, and that is where I saw The Rest and Be Thankful, I was also able to click in to last min deals and mini breaks, to get the deal rate.

Exmoor Accommodation Website History
Although Exmoor was untouched by foot and mouth, the area effectivly closed overnight and my 18 year well established tourism business went from fully booked to empty overninght. At that time, I had a complex of six 5 star holiday cottages at Wheddon Cross, purchased as a rural slum in 1998 when we moved from Dorset.
In 2000 most of Little Quarme’s new customers were already finding the cottages on net via the 3 national sites and one local one I was advertising on. All four were unattractive, difficult to navigate and off putting to potential guests, but were starting to produce good results. So with no guest to look after I started thinking. The upshot was my 30 years of tourism knoweledge combined with Jay Nevada & Dave Silvera of PCWebshop Hi expertise and a few months later a live exmoor-accommodation.co.uk went from an idea on a sheet of white paper to a reality in Sept 2001 at a cost of £4.000.
