Meet the Team at Pitched

Pitched is a digital design agency specialising in design, marketing and online booking for the holiday park industry, all under one roof.

Located in Cornwall, we’re a friendly bunch made up of web developers, graphic designers, marketeers, project managers, copywriters and two very excitable spaniels!

We’ve worked directly for some of the smallest and biggest holiday park operators in the country — and we haven’t just been supplying them with stunning websites and marketing services. Our team have collected glasses, manned reception desks and even managed holiday parks in the past. So, it’s fair to say we know the industry inside out and back to front. This knowledge of the tourism sector, combined with our technical expertise, means we offer the most comprehensive design and marketing package to holiday parks and campsites in the UK.

The enthusiasm we have for our sector drives our creative and strategic minds to offer the best solutions for our clients. Working with us means you’ll have a direct dialogue with our team and they will have a personal involvement in everything that we produce for you.
