6 PLACES TO WFH IN THE UK
Week 1375 of working from home…
You’ve developed a crick in your neck that may never go away. You’ve memorised all the weird splodges on the wall. And your relationship with the coffee machine brings you more joy than your actual relationship… which may or may not have ended. You don’t remember.
We’ve done you a favour and found six of the best places to work remotely in the UK. From luxe cabins in the Kent countryside to charming Cotswolds retreats.
Devon, United Kingdom
The WFH upgrade you deserve. No, need.
Secreted away in the Devon countryside, this lodge is more wholesome than Mary Berry in a cashmere knit. It’s a one-bedder, a king. The open plan decking is the scene-stealer but you've also got a snuggly living room.
Spend your evenings by the fire pit and days off at the beach. Who said working from home had to be stressful?
Hampshire, United Kingdom
This isn’t a sad, soggy cottage… this is the other kind. Think, massive windows opening out onto the garden and roll-top bathtub. Ideal.
There are 2 beds - a double, and a queen-sized sofa bed - both are cosy. You can set your laptop up in front of the luxe kitchen to be close to the garden views. Or you can make the most of the wood burner setting and pitch up in the living room.
Luxury Rural Barn
Kent, United Kingdom
In the middle of the countryside, but only 40 minutes (by train) from London. And it has Netflix.
SIGN. US. UP.
This luxe barn is for living out your WFH fantasy. The one where you have your own vegetable garden, castles on your doorstep, and a king size bed with fluffy duvets. Work from the sofa, or snuggled up in bed, or with a vino on the patio. There are only winners here.
Dorset, United Kingdom
does that make me the woodpecker?”
This place is a hug of a stay. There’s a sunny little kitchen with a squishy sofa and sun trap terrace. Work from the breakfast table or you can head to the garden - it’s got a trickling brook at the bottom and a fire pit.
Sweat off that after work frustration at the tennis court before starfishing into your king-size bed. You’ve got a Smart TV and walk-in shower too.
Cotswolds, United Kingdom
Bracken Cottage has been plucked right out of a fairytale. It sits on a street of houses that all used to be silk weavers’ cottages. You’ll be hunkering down in a quiet area but you’re also within easy reach of Chipping Campden, Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold.
After a day of working you can head to one of the two village pubs or go for a countryside stroll. The WiFi is good here and you’ve got a few nice WFH setups to choose from. Perch yourself on the dining room table or sink into the sofa. But your best bet is the landscaped garden.
The Dog House
Saffron Walden, United Kingdom
A Dog House you’ll want to be banished too…
This guy’s a tall glass of water, serving all the sunny California vibes. Even though it’s actually in Saffron Walden - a charming market town.
The massive bi-fold doors open out onto a patio with a hammock and fire pit. Inside there’s a super king bed, TV with Netflix and a big kitchen with a breakfast bar.
