web design Snails Pace Cafe, Wenfordbridge near Bodmin.

A few months ago we found ourselves at Wenfordbridge near Bodmin hoping to hire bikes to cycle the camel trail. We found a really great cafe to hire from. It was a self built eco construction using timber and a shipping container; light airy and with a great menu full of organic and homemade produce. The bikes were good quality and the route through woodlands and valley was gentle and quiet.

After a great ride to Bodmin and back I saw that the owner -Nick was creating a web page  using a simple free site builder you can get from a hosting platform. I gave him some advice on getting photos sized correctly and left him a card incase the site became a little too inflexible for his vision.

A week or two later I got a call to build a site that was in keeping with their ethos. It had to be simple, understated and operable by Nick with limited time to learn wordpress and making posts.

I really identified with what they were doing and had achieved. Snail’s Pace Cafe is much more than a cafe. Nick and Linzi have a background in ecology, sustainability and good food. The cafe is off grid with a composting loo, and plenty of solar panels. Kids love that the smoothie maker is bicycle powered and there are books and games to keep them entertained. Made from a shipping container and local timbers  in a quiet valley under the moor it is well worth a visit and a lot of fun whether you ride the camel trail or not.
