Benefits of rural offices in Gloucestershire & Oxfordshire

The most coveted and costly office space tends to be found in central business towns of Cheltenham, Oxford or Banbury.
However, there are benefits too to be found from using high-quality offices in more rural or at least far less hectic locations, like Upper Rissington in the heart of Cotswolds.

Here we’ll take a look at just what those advantages can be for using a managed workspace like Cotswold Business Centre.

Low costs Rural Office Space

As we’ll see, there are numerous reasons why a business who need workspaces for 2-6 people might choose to avoid city centres and head for more rural retreats, however, there is no sense denying the notion that the clearest incentive is to keep costs as low as possible. Cotswold Business Centre offers private office space at just £225 per person, this an all-inclusive price, rates, electric, heating and internet access.

The quiet commute in the Cotswolds

Many employees working in cities are stressed before they even turn up at work because their commute has been hectic. If your business is located in rural surroundings of Gloucestershire, the roads are often quieter, meaning that your employees are happier!

Logistical advantages

Often the precise nature of advantages, to be gained in operating from rural office space, will depend on the logistical challenges that a particular company tends to face. However, it can be the case that not being in a city centre makes it far more straightforward for businesses to access road networks and make lighter work of getting goods and people in and out of a specific location. Upper Rissington to Oxford 30 miles, Cheltenham 38 miles, Banbury 42 miles and Witney 25 miles. 

Purpose-built facilities

Cotswold Business Centre has been custom modified with specific purposes for the kinds of businesses in the Cotswold area. Out-of-town business. It's a small business cluster where companies can both complement and collaborate to worthwhile effect.

Less noise

The constant noise from traffic, sirens and general city life can often get a bit much. However, rural locations often don’t have the same level of noise, making a more peaceful place to work, this is ideal for professionals that need serenity.

Growth opportunities

Another advantage of rural offices like the Cotswold Business Centre is that once a company is settled then there is ready access to a variety of other office options, which won’t always be the case in a big city where demand is high and quality space can be at a real premium.

Green surroundings

Upper Rissington is surrounded by greenery and nature, meaning it is, even more, inviting to go outside for some fresh air on your lunch break. Getting outside and exercising is a great way to relieve work stress.

Red carpet treatment

Upper Rissington is perfectly served by local amenities that are keen to serve, with local shops, bars and gyms. Cotswold Business Centre tenants have the opportunity to take advantage of negotiated discounts of some local amenities.

AA Google Business Reviews

  • We have recently moved our offices to the Cotswold Business Centre and are very pleased with the facility. Richard runs the centre very efficiently and it is always kept in great condition. It is our first experience of shared office space and I would not hesitate to recommend this facility.
  • Great facility for me to walk to work and have access 24/7. Richard has also been super flexible and quick to sort out any issues. Whilst I can stay hidden away in the office undisturbed, it is also good to see more people around the centre. There is a good feel to the place and better than being stuck at home on the kitchen table! I always champion the facility when talking to others and great for the community.
  • Great local Business Centre. Offers good business facilities including a variety of office space options, all the necessary amenities and accommodating and helpful management. Highly recommended!!
  • Absolutely love my working space at the Cotswold Business Centre, set just on outskirts of very quiet housing estate, with the beautiful Bourton-on-the-Water just 5 minutes down the road. The management team are super friendly and helpful, and the other tenants are all very considerate of one another so it is a really enjoyable working environment. Having 24 hour access is great so I am able to work to my schedule. The facilities are always kept well, including the communal kitchen. Highly recommend if you are looking for an office /work space for great value.
  • Lovely premises. We've only been here for a short while but have been well looked after. It's nice and quiet with great facilities. Shared facilities are kept to a high standard. Our own space is also excellent. Would recommend Cotswold Business Centre.
