Put the coffee on!

  • Co-working is often also referred to as shared hot-desk or flexible space
  • Co-working space is accommodation which is available to book by the hour, half day or longer. 
  • It is a business space shared with other individuals where you can touch down and work in an office environment. 
  • People only requiring formal office space for short periods and really benefit from the availability of this type of accommodation. 
  • The only financial commitment is for the period booked on each occasion which is particularly attractive in keeping business accommodation costs to a mimimum but also allowing dedicated space to carry out work. 
  • This can be particularly attractive to individuals usually working from home who may on occasion need to escape to an office with all the benefits it brings. 


The co-working concept is designed to cater for freelance and start-up businesses looking for a presence in the heart of the Allen Valleys, North Pennines, with fixed prices and ultra-fast secure Internet, printer and laptop if you need one, but the best part is you work with likeminded people sharing ideas, a cup of coffee and cake!
