Case study: Rural Roosts, Stainfield, Lincolnshire

Rural Roosts is a Lincolnshire based, family run business, owned by Katie and Tim Olivant, providing self catering pine holiday lodges in a peaceful countryside setting.

The lodges are part of Manor Farm which is located in Stainfield, a quiet village 8 miles east of Lincoln. Visitors enjoy 300 acres of grassland, wild flower meadows, wetlands, birds and other wildlife along with the farm’s sheep and Hereford cattle. Rural Roosts is the perfect rural retreat.

As much as it is great to get away from modern-life, guests of Rural Roosts did not have access to a reasonable internet connection. With the previous internet provider, the farm was too far away from the exchange, only able to receive up to 2Mbps and with no hope of improvement in sight, the business owners were concerned, as customers complained about the wifi and some who enquired about it before booking, were put off.

After discovering Quickline in 2015, Katie tested out the service in her home and office. Instantly impressed with the service, took the plunge and connected all of the lodges.

Katie Olivant says:

“We had started to loose bookings because we couldn’t offer reliable wifi. But sometimes a poor connection is more frustrating than no connection at all, so we wanted to put Quickline to the test before offering it to our customers.”

“We are absolutely delighted with Quickline as we receive 30Mbps, needless to say we are very happy with the service. It gives our customers the opportunity to stay in touch with work, if they want to and also use social media.”

“We have had great feedback, with some guests commenting it is faster than their connection at home.”

Rural Roosts signed up to Quickline’s Beanstalk Pro30 package and also ConnectCall which provides a landline telephone service.
