A Bit About Us


BookNow Websites

We love the outdoors

IT’s Where ideas start

While strolling through the Peak District near my home, a conversation with a friend sparked an idea. We discussed someone dissatisfied with their Airbnb experience. They were wanting control, direct guest communication, and freedom from hefty commission fees. Lacking the technical know-how and time, they were put off by the complex options available, especially the challenge of synchronising calendars.

Recognising the need for a solution, we pondered our skill sets and realised we had the opportunity to provide this service. Enter BookNow Websites – offering user-friendly WordPress designs that not only highlight properties but also extending support in marketing and social media, ensuring a seamless and empowered hosting experience.

🌲 About Me: Embracing Nature, Golf, and Scandinavian Dreams

Hi! I’m Philippa, and if I’m not busy crafting websites, you’ll likely find me chasing trails in the great outdoors, swinging clubs on the golf course, or daydreaming about epic camper van adventures through the breathtaking landscapes of Scandinavia. ⛰️⛳🚐

⛰️ Hiking Enthusiast: As a passionate hiker, I find solace in the rhythm of nature. Whether it’s conquering challenging trails or discovering hidden gems, the call of the wild is my ultimate inspiration.

Golf Aficionado: When not exploring the wilderness, you’ll catch me perfecting my swing on the golf course. There’s something therapeutic about the green expanse and the satisfying thud of a well-struck ball.

🚐 Scandinavian Wanderer: My heart longs for the open roads of Scandinavia. The dream? Endless breaks, cruising in a cozy camper van, witnessing the Northern Lights, and soaking in the serene beauty of fjords. One day, this dream will become my reality.
