Many professionals have had the luxury of working from home in recent years, which has offered refuge from the dreaded commute. Despite this, some have still experienced the distractions that can come from combining home and work life.
To find balance between these two worlds, coming into a flexible office has become the ideal solution for those wanting a workplace closer to their homes.
In light of this, here are some of the top cities in the UK for hybrid workers facing a similar situation.
1. Far Peak, Gloucestershire
This region offers a lower cost of living compared to Central London, as well as access to Far Peak Climbing.
The converted beetroot factory offers 22 units, a cafe, gym, climbing wall, and an ideal place to get some work done.
2. Kowel Gwenen, Cornwall
The Kowel Gwenen coworking space in Cornwall provides desks for £120 ($162) per month and is set in Newquay Community Orchard which offers yoga classes and unlimited organic tea and coffee.
“My desk overlooks an acre of beautiful orchard. We are above the canteen, which serves locally grown food. We have free breakfasts on Motivational Mondays,” said Kayleigh Tucker, who left behind a corporate job at a supermarket chain during the pandemic and is now an account director. “It’s a stimulating, creative environment. It was a great place to meet people as I’d just moved to Cornwall and didn’t know anybody.”
3. The Pump House, Winchester
The Pump House is a coworking space within a converted water station that opens in late February. The space features a cafe, personal chef, coffee, fitness facilities, and Zoom and podcast studios.
4. The Old Post Office, Hampshire
