Dulverton Website Launched  – https://visitdulverton.com/

The pretty Exmoor market town of Dulverton is delighted to announce the launch of its new website, dedicated to the visitor to Dulverton – visitdulverton.com. Following the upheaval and uncertainty of the pandemic, Dulverton Town Council was keen to attract visitors back to the town to reignite its tourism economy and it was agreed that a website featuring local businesses within the TA22 postcode would be a great way to start. The Visit Dulverton Facebook and Instagram pages have already proved very popular, and the website was created to give further details and information about the town and its businesses.
The website has been specifically designed with the visitor in mind – with pages suggesting places to stay, places to eat and drink, places to shop, useful information and, of course, things to do! An events calendar is already filling up with the many events planned for the year ahead – including the celebrations for Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, the return of the popular Vintage Fair, the second Dulverton Fun Run & Canicross and – new for 2022 – the Dulverton Artisan Food, Drink and Crafts Festival and the Dulverton Literary Festival.
Initial feedback for the website has been very favourable from local businesses, tourism organisations and visitors alike. Paul Hardy from Hardy Antiques in Dulverton said “the site looks fantastic. It’ll be a massive help to boosting trade in our lovely town” and Beverley Brown from Dorset described it as a “wonderful, online, pocket sized guidebook to Dulverton that’s very easy to navigate”.
The website was designed by local Devon company, Marketing Chameleon, with the town’s traders providing images and descriptions of their own businesses. The launch of the site has been timed to coincide with a new influx of visitors for 2022, beginning with those expected over February half term.
