Cumbria Business in the UK
Cumbria is the operating homebase for Dark Sea Web Design Limited and we are proud to have amongst our clients many Cumbrian based companies, some of whom put their faith in us in the relative 'early days' of the Internet in 1997/98 and whom we are delighted to have helped in building and expanding their businesses to date.
One such company was Palmyra Limited, a manufacturer of artifical grass for sports and leisure including synthetic soccer turf, whom we attracted as a client back in 1998 and worked to develop not only their previously well established UK market but also international markets including China and the Middle East. In September 2005 Palmyra's assets were purchased by Support in Sport, an Anglo-Dutch company hitherto specialising in the installation of real turf stadium pitches such as for Celtic and Real Madrid. Hence a new Cumbrian-based company was born: Support in Sport (Manufacturing) Ltd, producing synthetic soccer turf for the SIS Group and we are delighted to have been commissioned by them for 2 websites to date plus Internet marketing requirements.
We have also developed websites and Internet marketing strategies for other Cumbrian companies including the DTI Award-winning Primasonics International whose silo cleaning systems are in demand worldwide.
Our web design portfolio shows many other Cumbrian businesses whom we're privileged to serve.
One of the most visited parts of the UK, Cumbria's great attraction for tourists from all over the world is the breathtaking scenery of the beautiful Lake District. Walkers can enjoy the fells, climbers can scale the hills and mountains and sailing and water sports enthusiasts have a myriad of lakes to enjoy.
There are many hotels, pubs and inns throughout the county offering excellent accommodation and function rooms - such as the Heather Glen Country House Hotel in the Eden Valley which is now a popular Penrith wedding venue. Hadrian's Wall, now a World Heritage Site attracts its own special type of visitor - and from every corner of the globe. Bed and breakfasts, guest houses, country pubs and holiday cottages abound along the length of the wall from Cumbria into Northumberland, many of them being award-winning places to stay such as this Lanercost cottage.
Cumbria's history is a fascinating one - from the Romans to the Border Reivers, spanning centuries of rule mixed with unrest. Even the legend of King Arthur is said by some to have its base in Cumbria. So whether for history or just the beautiful scenery and walks it has to offer, Cumbria merits a visit by anyone in the UK.
