Grace Darling Holidays – Wide Range of Holiday Cottages to Select

Posted by on August 13, 2012 | Comments

If given a chance to reside in anywhere in England, then I would certainly prefer the North-Eastern region – the most stunning part of the country, gifted with natural aura. And to be even more precise – Northumberland, an area endowed with lots and lots of scenic beauty. In the midst of hills, shores and captivating hamlets, this becomes one’s dream destination for spending a vacation in an exotic location. If you too are desirous of getting a break from your hectic life to spend a vacation, then make sure you have a look at Grace Darling Holidays’ brochure of Northumberland Cottages. And I am pretty sure that it would leave you longing for a trip to this region – having breathtaking scenery along with a distinctive local history.

Grace Darling Holidays is a Holiday Cottages Northumberland-based business which has been in operation in north eastern England for quite some time now. All of the holiday cottages are privately owned and situated along the scenic coastline. Grace Darling Holidays gives you the option of browsing through the cottages online and getting a flavour of what holidaying in such exotic locations is like. You can then book the one of your choice either online or by calling them up.

With a gallery of more than 100 cottages, you have an access to an extensive range of cottages and you can easily select the one matching your requirements and budget – which means you just specify your budget and you get a holiday tailored to suit your needs. I was browsing through the gallery and, I must admit, I was at many occasions tempted to book a cottage for me. They look simply fabulous – a picture perfect destiny for a lavish outing.

Coming to the website, this is one of those websites which you would love to feast your eyes upon. The top of the page has a dynamic banner accompanied by the navigation menus on the left. www.gracedarlingholidays.com has a simple three column layout and looks pretty decent – a blend of professionalism and elegance. However, the font size is pretty small and navigation menus are quite petite too. However, the colour schemes are pretty appreciable and I was impressed by the selection. Navigation is found to be quite simple and users can easily browse through the pages. There are lot of images on the website, pretty obvious, and all of them are really striking. This would definitely generate traffic from browsers on the website. Besides, you would notice a few ads on the website too. The website takes a pretty decent amount of time to load, owing to so much of graphical content. Also, there is a lot of content on the website and each portion of it is absolutely mesmerising. It is these types of web content which are most effective in convincing people.

Before, you complete reading this and ponder over your decisions its time that I book a cottage for myself and go on an exotic trip. Overall, 8 out of 10 for this business. See ya next time around guys! Bon Voyage!

May be they should give a highlight on each cottage and then if desired may go in for detail search.

Polaris World

Posted by on June 12, 2012 | Comments

Welcome back folks!!! This time we are reviewing a completely different site – www.polarisworld.info, not only in terms of subject but also in terms of targeted crowd and other aspects. Before we move ahead, one very important point which comes to your mind would be the meaning of ‘Polaris World’. Polaris World Spain is a vacation resort business with its basis on golf courses developed by Nicklaus Design (Jack Nicklaus’s business of designing golf courses). Each golf course is surrounded by extensive housing facilities like apartments, country houses and cottages with amenities such as malls, shopping complexes, restaurants, amphitheatres and so on all managed by the Polaris World family of companies. The golf courses are otherwise identified as the Polaris World Nicklaus Golf Trail.

With seven resorts ranging from 55 hectares to 900 hectares in size, Polaris World Murcia is the leading golf resort developer in the region. Almost all of the resorts are around 100 to 250 hectares in size, but there are also larger and smaller ones. Presently being improved, Mar Menor was the first one to be completed. La Torre is wholly developed and is an exemplary evidence of what Polaris World stands for. El Valle, another site containing villas for the most part, is almost complete (unlike the others, apart from Mar Menor, which are chiefly apartments). The biggest development, Condado de Alhama, is more than 900 hectares large and has 3 golf courses within it.

Now, at first look it might seem as if www.polarisworld.info is the official website for Polaris World. But factually it is not. It is, in fact, the website for Villa Cashback – the largest seller of Polaris World property in Europe. At first even I was confused and took it to be the official website for Polaris world, but a closer look revealed the truth. The business has a lot of beautiful properties up for sale and I am pretty sure that people with a lot of money in their pockets would not refrain from feasting themselves upon the luxury of a villa in Polaris World Resorts.

Coming to the website, it is a nice two column layout with links and ads all over the left and content on the right side. The site opens with the home page displaying a beautiful dynamic banner at the top (like the ones on Bing’s homepage – keeps on changing). There are a lot of pictures and ads all over the website due to which the site takes a lot of time to load. Browse through the homepage carefully and you will find a lot of un-clickable links all over it. On the left side, a lot of ads (looking cheap) have been posted beneath the clearly laid out contact details. Coming back to the content, plenty of it is available on the website, although I feel most of it is not reliable. The pages have been littered with a lot of unnecessary links which make it look even worse.

Appearance wise, the website is pretty decent. Although the site builder could have made use of a lot more colours but he has chosen a simple and sober layout. The site feels pretty professional and has a nice feel attached to it, owing to the fact that it is involved in transacting such significant properties. On the navigation front, apart from a glitch here and there, it is pretty comfortable and smooth. Overall, a perfect 3/5 for this website.
