To stay true to Wyndham Vacations Rentals UK original website structure we applied a refreshed look and feel to the Cumbrian cottages and its sister websites Northumberland Cottages, Yorkshire Cottages, Peak District & Derbyshire Cottages, Scottish Cottage and Wales Cottages.

Six websites for Wyndham by Codehouse

Six refreshing Sitecore websites

This Sitecore project involved developing Sitecore page types, modules and components for six websites including complex integration with Wyndham’s internal systems.

There was also some migration. Content from Mosaic was migrated to the six websites, and WordPress blog content migrated to blog articles. So that the migration went smoothly, we developed a custom migration tool.

Manageable content

Over 20 fully editable user control components are part of this Sitecore project. These controls enable content editors to select content for carousels, image galleries and booking control.

To address an overloaded content tree we created item buckets. These item repositories are ideal for minimising the amount of content items in Sitecore's content tree, and most importantly, perfect for minimising content maintenance overheads. So Wyndham’s content team became familiar and confident with their new Sitecore websites we produced a bespoke Sitecore user guide.

Mobile first

The new “mobile first” interface design uplifts the online image of the site family, bringing it in-line with modern day web design. The Sitecore controlled responsive multi-site architecture caters for all Wyndham’s sister sites, each having a distinctive and defined colour scheme, strong imagery and easy navigation controls, all of which contribute to a vastly enhanced user experience.
