Over the years we have created many website designs for Kent area businesses. Here are just a few of the genuine reviews and testimonials we’ve received after completing the design.
What do the clients say?
Thanks Nigel, love the new website design. Looking forward to getting more enquiries for my roofing company in Canterbury soon – Bob
“We have been clients of OHM for many years now and this was our third update of our website that supports our Commercial Property Rental Business www.joinerholdings.co.uk It’s was used more for information to existing and prospective tenants but it is hoped to use it more as a marketing tool for units as they become available in the future as well as supporting / promoting the activities of our tenants to others. Nigel has always been very helpful and the process was smooth and straightforward with good advice on some aspects of the design to make it easy to update. I have no problem in recommending Nigel and OHM for your project.” David Mann Property Manager GS Joiner & Sons Ltd
“We are very pleased with the way in which you have crafted our web site. It looks very professional and caters for all our needs. In fact my son who owns and runs DMB Scaffolding took a look and said that when he is ready to have a website he will give you a ring as he was just as impressed (Believe me he is not easily impressed!) I think that the training was comprehensive and covered everything that we needed to know in order to operate it efficiently, whether we can retain all the information is another matter but we were relieved to learn that were we to be in real trouble we could ring you for advice and support. Today we had our first email into the website and we have not even loaded the music into youtube or other sites so all is looking good. Thank you for all of you help, assistance and guidance. Best regards. Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.” Mike and Jacqui Brimson michael-brimson-composer.co.uk
“Oast House Media has made my new website a reality and I’m really pleased with the result. Nigel has shown extreme patience, waiting for me to get back to him with images and feedback and to put into action the excellent one-to-one training he provided. It now means I can update my own website when I have some news or want to show some of my latest work. It has been a long time in the making (purely down to me) but well worth the wait. Thanks Nigel.” Carol Wilkinson. Owner alpacacreative.com
“I was very worried about changing my website. I need something which is easy to edit myself and add posts, but I am not that okay with computer technology. I have been using Contribute and have found it okay, but I was persuaded by Oast House Media to change and go for a mobile friendly website using WordPress.
I have to say I am so glad I did. It is a better system, so much easier to use and the look is great. Nigel at Oast House spent lots of time with me , showing me how to add posts, edit posts etc. He explained everything in a clear and easy way. Definitely recommend Oast House.“ Brian Booth. Awayday awaydays.biz
“I just wanted to write a few words to express my sincere thanks for all your help setting up my business website. You made the whole process easy to understand and created a great tailored website which will help my business tremendously. Throughout our meetings and discussions I could tell that not only were you personally very keen on creating a great website but also on helping my business develop. I look forward to working with you in the future.”
Robert Shipp. Will-Works
“Its been great working with you to redevelop my website. My requirements are not often straight forward, or comprehensive, but we have worked together to achieve a vast improvement. I can’t thank you enough for your patience and attention to detail, being able to transfer my thoughts into a lively and interactive website. Feedback from customers old and new has been very positive, and has brought added value to my person brand at Intermix2.”
Ken Corbin: intermix2.co.uk
“Nigel recently advised me that I needed to update my website as it was no longer mobile-friendly. He achieved this in his usual professional manner and I am very pleased with the new updated design and have already had several new enquiries in the last couple of weeks since the new website went live. I have recommended him to several of my business associates and he has been working with them and has achieved similar excellent results on their behalf.”
Steve Girdwood: confettiproductions.co.uk
“We are thrilled with our website – it was a quick and easy process dealing with Nigel at Oasthouse Media and our site was up and running within weeks of our initial meeting. Nigel also provided a very thorough training session so that we are now able to keep the site up to date ourselves. Highly recommended.”
Dan Beeson, Snug Fireplace & Stove Installations: snuginstallations.co.uk
“Many thanks Nigel, I asked for a quick turnaround but that was awesome, 2 days! We love the new Loveshack design. Looking forward to the free training!”
“I recently had my taxi website completely revamped by Oasthouse Media and would like to say a big thank you to Nigel and his team for doing a Fantastic Job on it. I am over the moon with it and would recommend them to anybody” Richard
“Arthur Bryant Surveying Services Limited have used Oast House Media for several years, Nigel Stevenson the Director is always helpful, professional and friendly. Nigel is always a telephone call away should we have any problems, which is very rare and always advises us when we need to update our website to incorporate Google and mobile phone changes so that we are constantly on page 1 on google searches. The Oast House Media newsletter is useful with lots of tips. I would happily recommend Oast House Media to anyone that requires a professional website.”
June Kelly arthurbryantltd.co.uk
“thanks Nigel, as you know I’m not technical when it comes to websites but you made it very easy for me to understand. The website works well on my mobile and the yell guys are happy as well”
John Barton john-barton-tree-surgeons.co.uk
“We contacted Oast House Media via our IT suppliers for a new website design. After a face to face meeting with Nigel we quickly received a written proposal explaining what we were getting and how much it would cost. The draft design was available very soon after we approved costs and the final design went live after we added further content. The image galleries are an excellent way for us to showcase what we do – lovely design. All the original and addition work were completed to budget and without any delays, we’d recommend the Oast House Media team”
Stuart Lockhart lifetimedriveways.co.uk
“Why get a bespoke website built for you when you can get a very good stylish website using the template solution offered by Oast House Media? What you get for the price you pay is astounding – mobile and social media friendly. I was very impressed with the way in which Nigel interpreted my ideas and “got” the feel of my business – also providing me with a smart new logo and letterhead. The whole process was very efficient and fantastic value for money, which means I can continue to keep my overheads low for my charity clients.”
Chris Lockhart www.cllaccounting.com
“Once again Nigel has not only redesigned my website to the new mobile and Google friendly format he also made the whole experience for me as a IT novice easy to understand he also delivered on site training to make the future editing etc a walk in the park, I highly recommend Nigel for all your website needs 5*+++”
Jason Harding www.jason-harding-first-aid.co.uk
“It was time to update and refresh my website, Nigel at Oast House Media pulled it out the pond again! I was after a mobile friendly site which incorporated social media and real time reports and that’s exactly what I got and within budget. Having used Oast House Media for a number of years I was confident of the professional and efficient service they provide. Great design and content and all the support you need along the way. I would recommend you give them a go.”
Kev Kileen www.sandwichlakes.co.uk
“I started my business in 2006 and was referred to Nigel at Oasthouse Media as someone who builds websites and is based in Kent. The first website that Nigel produced got me and my business on the map and the leads that followed were all of good quality.
Since 2006, I cannot believe that was 10 years ago, Nigel has refreshed my website and designed another for a different part of the business.
I will always recommended Nigel and his company to any business ampills.com who wants to be seen in the mad world that is the “interweb”. The websites, when they have been made and updated or refreshed keep on providing leads. The only pity is that the old websites have to go which is always a moment of sadness for me.
I have also had my business cards and compliment slips designed and produced by Nigel. They work as well.
Nigel is a very personable guy to deal with, always seems to get the message and produces eye catching designs that really work.
Thank you Nigel, you have helped me and my business to grow and prosper.
Couldn’t have done it without Oasthouse Media.”
Clive Glaze – owner www.operatorcompliance.com
“Thank you Nigel & OHM for the web site design and construction you have done for my Mobile Discotheque business. You made the whole process from start to finish easy, and put the requirements of information needed in terms even I was able understand. Although I think I know my way around a computer, the creation of a web site was far too complicated for me to achieve. Particularly as I did not even know where to start.
From my sketchy information you produced a great site, not only that but you were always available on the end of the phone and nothing was ever too much trouble, even though I probably asked some stupid questions! In fact OHM are now doing a second website for me for a start up business which will be running shortly.
Your advice has been invaluable and your professional friendly attitude along with the finished product means I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone looking for a new or refreshed website.”

There has never been a time when they have not reacted to a problem or a service requirement with speed and efficiency, along with sound advice.

Since then I have not looked back and would never change to another company. Not only do I have a great website I know I can contact them at any time and they will help me. I receive a monthly newsletter and through this have improved my company profile even more. I would highly recommend Oast House Media to anyone.”

“I couldnt praise this company enough, they built my jewellery website Nigel was very helpfull and even gave advice which saved me money unlike some of the other companies I approached.”
Mrs S. Dream Charm
“I approached OHM with a couple of very specific ideas in mind, one was to make a professional looking site, the other was to see if we could raise our google ranking when a user types in two words (wont bore you with the technical details) but Nigel had us top of the list within days of the site going live!, he made good use of my amateurish photo’s and was very easy to work with. The site was delivered on time and on budget. I would highly recommend OHM to any business looking to ‘up their profile'”
Drew Fuller Grundon Marine Ltd
“I just want to thank you for your help in creating a website for my new business venture – Deal Keyholding Services. I just about know my way around my own computer – but the creation of web pages – far too complicated for me. You made it all seem so easy and you always took the time and trouble to explain the technical jargon to me when I had that confused look on my face. Your advice has been invaluable and your professional friendly approach assures me I can contact you should I have a problem or need to update or change my pages.”
Caroline Young – owner
“I have recently had a brand new website designed by Nigel and his team at Oast House Media and I must say I am absolutely delighted with the result.
From conception to completion Nigel could not have been more helpful or informative and has produced a high quality website to showcase our business.
I have had some excellent feedback already and the site has only been live a few days so I am very confident that I will be getting significantly more bookings from our association with Oast House Media. Thoroughly recommended.”
Steve Girdwood, Confetti Productions Limited website
“As I am a small business and being not very technical minded with regards to computers, but realized that I need a web page but unsure who to go to, I was recommend Oast House Media.
I can only say it was the best recommendation I have ever had, Nigel was very so professional and nothing was to much trouble. an talked me through what I needed. The support that I had from Oast House Media, was Ist class, and even though I did not understand some of the things Nigel was so patient. The finished product was far more than I expected and would recommend any body looking for a web site to contact Nigel. Thank you Nigel for all your support and help”
Mrs M Walsh, Night Owl Care Monitoring
“Oast House Media created a striking design incorporating the company branding but also adding some of their own ideas to bring the site to life. A supportive and collaborative approach ensured that the process was easy to understand, even to someone without good IT skills!”
Edwina Crowley, Proprisk
“We have enjoyed working with Nigel to produce our ‘newlook’ website for our farmhouse bed and breakfast. Nigel spent a lot of time listening to our new ideas for our design and coming up with his own suggestions to produce a professional looking website. We are extremely satisfied with all the work he has done for us over the past four years and have no hesitation in recommending his services to your business.”
Wendy Burrows, Alkham Court B and B
“Our first website was around two years old, and need a few changes. We love our new website, the new pictures and layout are great.” Damien Gillies – MD
“We tried the ‘DIY’ option, researched quite a few web companies but soon realised that what we really needed was a designer that understood our business and could take a ‘sketchy’ brief and turn it into a bespoke website with a bit of creative flair that fulfilled our needs.
From our initial meeting with Nigel, our website went from ‘concept’ to ‘live’ within 2 weeks. Delivered with creativity, ideas, feedback, within budget and on time as promised. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of OHM to our clients.” Julie Waller, JPW Business Solutions Ltd
“I had a website already built with Oast House but after a few years decided it was time to get with the times! So contacted Nigel to see what he could offer. After a short meeting work was underway to update and refresh the site. Nigel was great and knew exactly what was needed. By adding FLICKR and Adobe Contribute I am now able maintain the site on a monthly basis myself!
I was also after a site map of the fishery and he was able to design and deliver a colour overhead of the site, Just what I was after. And once more it didn’t break the bank!
My Site is now top on each relevant search and is performing well. I know if there is ever a problem I can contact Oast House and get a swift reply.
Oast House Media offer a professional and efficient service and I would and do recommend you contact them for all your website needs!”
Kevin Killeen – Sandwich Coarse Fishery
“Oast House Media were recommended to us by our IT trouble-shooter, and we can see why he was able to recommend them with such confidence. Right from the start Nigel understood what we wanted to achieve, and he has given us a well designed, well presented and easy to update website.”
Lin Brown, Brown Commercials
“The site gives everyone a clear view of our business and frequently rates highly on search engines. I have recommended Nigel to potential clients and have no hesitation in continuing to do so as unlike many other developers he continually monitors and advises on ways to improve / promote your business.”
David Mann, Property Manager, GS Joiner & Sons Ltd
“OHM developed a web site for our Commercial Property Rental business in 2010 which enabled us to let current and future tenants know about our business and how we operate in a totally different way to “Traditional” commercial property rental businesses as we own, manage, maintain, market and promote all our 50 commercial units in Whitstable, Canterbury and Herne Bay areas ourselves, even having built most of them as well. Our simple, flexible and secure Licence arrangements mean tenants can be in vacant units within 48hrs with no legal costs to pay.
After a bad experience with another company we decided to approach OHM as a local company we could work with. From the initial prompt reply Nigel gave clear, honest informative advice on pricing, how web sites work and what could represent us on the internet. The results where live on line within a week giving us a presence on the internet appearing consistently high on Google’s search pages. Thanks for all your help, we look forward to continue working closely with you in the future.”
Grant Byford, Byford Construction
“We commissioned Nigel to build a brand new site for our residetial home, Bradfield Residential Home as we are always looking for ways to improve our business. We researched a few companies and also considered the ‘diy’ option.
We deceided to choose Oast house media as we felt that they could deliver a bespoke website to match the reputation of the home, at a very reasonable cost. It was nice to talk face to face with the designer and build up the relationship and trust from day one.
Nigel was very easy to work with, and kept close to our original design brief, but also had plenty of ideas and recommendations to optimise the site.
The site was delivered on time and to our agreed budget. We were aware of all the costs up front with clear pricing for any extra’s.
The website went live in January 2012 and I can honestly say that the investment has increased the amount of enquiries, which converts into excellent occupancy levels for the home.
Since then we have made many changes to the site as it has grown over the years. We have also listened to our customers and made changes which they have recommended, for example the ‘Events and Activities’ list on the home page. The last major update, in March 2012 was well received and again Nigel was very helpful with his recommendations. We added more pages to the site, but the real bonus was the FlickR slideshows and Adobe Contribute software, which puts us in control of our own website!
We can now change, update and communicate the very latest information to our current and prospective clients, but still use Nigel for any changes that require the professional touch.
Thankyou Nigel for your support to us over the last 3 years. We recommend your services to anyone we feel would benefit.”
David Johnson, Manager Bradfield Residential Home, Walmer
“Just to let you know that a new customer of ours said our website was the most user friendly and well laid out of all the boating sites he used, including the big international ones. Thought you might like the feedback, I know most people dont bother to mention it but it always goes down bloody well! Keep up the good work”
James Blackmoore, Highway Marine, Sandwich
“Oasthouse Media have not only developed us an informative and easy-to-use website, but also one that is now out-performing our competitors in search engine optimisation.” Richard Blackmore, Highway Marine
“Nigel at Oast House Media, created and has been looking after our website, for the last couple of years, over this period we have added pages and updated others. The site is so well optimised, it is on 1st page of Google, for most of our search criteria. We have also added back links on Nigel’s advice and are continue to do so. I have no hesitation in recommending Oast House Media as you website designers.”
Peter Varrall, Castles removals
” ….immediately impressed with the quality of the sites Oast House Media had designed for their clients. I contacted Nigel and within days he was back to me with his proposal for the basic site layout and colour scheme, as I had no serious ideas of my own. Nigel’s advice and experience allowed us to establish a great site, utilising great colours, a logo designed by Nigel and complimentary library images. My site has received numerous complimentary comments from UK and USA colleagues including “an amazing and professional looking site” and “the best site of this kind I have seen”.
Phil – Pharmalogics
“We were recommended Oast House Media by a friend and are delighted with the website they have achieved for us. Their flexible attitude, swift grasp of what we required, commitment to and understanding of how to make the most of search engines, competitive pricing, lack of unnecessary fuss and speedy response to all communications makes them unbeatable in our experience.”
Jenny Santos, Choose Leisure.
“We contacted Oast House Media after being recommended by one of their existing clients, and we can see why they were able to recommend them with such confidence. From the outset Nigel has understood what we are trying to achieve, and has been able to translate our rather vague ideas into a well designed and informative website which conveys our company image perfectly. We have already had some very positive comments from our customers and we are sure that our new website will become a valuable part of our company marketing and promotion.”
Wendy Harris, Nicholas Harris Interiors website
“OHM were recommended by a local printer who had seen some of his companies work, we had no experience with web design let alone a shopping site so relied heavily on his help. Nigel completed all the digital photography, editing and design as pre-agreed to budget and ahead of timescale ready for our pre-season launch. The site is achieving good search engine status and e-commerce traffic converting enquiries to hard sales.” Clair Bell – Director, Rock Pool Kids
