Wordpress Web Design in Stroud, Glos

Web Design in Stroud

Advance Web Solutions is a freelance web design business owned and run by Teresa Vance.

We provide a web design service based in Stroud in Gloucestershire; we cover the local area, including Painswick, Nailsworth, Gloucester and Cheltenham, but we can also liaise with you by Skype if you are further afield. We have happy customers from many different places, even as far afield as Portugal!

We’re particularly used to working with small businesses / SMEs. Our designs are functional, attractive and “up-to-date”. More importantly the websites we make are fully responsive and will work well and look good on mobile phones and tablets too.

If you would like to discuss your requirements and get a quote for a new website, or even to improve or make changes to your exisiting site, please contact us.

As a freelance web designer, my main priority is to establish a good working relationship with my clients – many people find they prefer to meet someone face-to-face who understands their business. Before starting on your site, I’ll meet with you at least once to establish exactly what you want from your website, and how best we can make it work for your business. We will build you a website that is:


  • clear and attractive
  • easy to use
  • responsive (works on mobiles and tablets)
  • has good content

We listen to you

  • are excellent communicators
  • will listen to your requirements

I was fortunate to meet Teresa in a coffee shop in Painswick and soon became professional partners in my Digital Marketing business based in Gloucestershire. Teresa is now a preferred supplier of web design and copy writing to over two thirds of the Client base of EQBP.

Teresa has a practical, hands-on approach and not only works to achieve tight deadlines, but has high levels of emotional intelligence, enabling great enduring relationships with Clients.

Whilst EQBP now works across Portugal as well as the South West UK, Teresa continues to be an integral part of our service offering, and produces excellent work on a consistent basis as well as maintaining close professional relationships with Clients in both countries.

I’d have no hesitation in recommending Teresa and her support team for all OMB, SME and Professional web design projects.

Teresa has recently revamped my B&B website to bring it up to date and modernise it. I found her easy to work with and very communicative. She has plenty of good ideas but always listens to you, the customer, and incorporates everything you need and suggest. She is prompt and efficient and is also good at explaining new and difficult concepts. I would recommend her to anyone wishing to reformat their website at a very reasonable cost. Thank you Teresa Anne Brooke-Smith

Woodchester Lodge B&B

Teresa designed and built my website late last year (2013). I knew roughly what I wanted but did not have a specification. She interpreted my ideas and turned them into an excellent solution, providing a technically creative commercial website for my company. Feel free to contact me as I would have no hesitation in recommending Advance Web Solutions in the future.

1329 (Stroud) Squadron Air Cadets has always had websites that fall out of date quickly due to people moving on after creating the website. Now with ‘AdVance Web Solutions’ the difficult bit of managing and hosting the website is covered at great value. Not only did AdVance Web Solutions do all the hard work for setting the website up, but they also provided some extremely useful information and simple ‘how to’ guides to enable some of the cadets to start keeping the website current – one of our constant challenges.
