New year, new tech location?

Are you thinking of an office move in the New Year? Follow the tech trail to the Cotswolds.

Every year, thousands of businesses relocate. Many move out of London, heading for places such as Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire, where the commute is less frantic, the cost of doing business is reasonable and the location means they are still within easy reach of clients, customers and suppliers.

Tech firms are leading the charge. By nature lean, adaptable and flexible, tech SMEs know they can build their cutting edge business from anywhere they choose. What better way to demonstrate the power of high tech, free from manufacturing and large labour-intensive workforces, than to move to a place where ideas flow freely?

At Cotswold Business Centre you will be in a beautiful rural setting, allowing time to breathe while still being in easy reach of high tech centres in Oxford, Birmingham, London, Reading and Swindon.

Moving out of London? Things to consider for start-ups and tech firms


Superfast broadband and sufficient bandwidth are crucial, and are an intrinsic part of doing business in Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds. Don’t forget physical connections, too - Cotswold Business Centre is so central, it’s easy to go north, south, east and west, via the M4, the M5 and M40.


You need access to a skilled and educated workforce. Independent-minded people who want to combine working in a high-tech business with a good quality of life. Not surprisingly, the stunning Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire Cotswolds region attracts people from Oxford, London and Birmingham. There are also a large number of professionals and enterprising people who have chosen to move to be near the pretty and bustling towns such as Chipping Norton, Chipping Camden, Stow-on-the-Wold and Cheltenham. Many will have worked in London, and want to stay in touch with the capital while working in peaceful and inspiration surroundings. 


Tech businesses need to scale up, or sometimes even scale down. Cotswold Business Centre offers offices for 2-6 people as well as 4,000 sq feet of newly-converted space. With shared communal facilities and a boardroom, you won’t work in complete isolation.

Rural, not remote

There’s more to work than an office. The Cotswolds Business Centre is next to local shops and there is access to a gym, bar and restaurant. Not to mention the wonderful pubs, markets and artisan shops nearby in the Cotswolds. Train stations at Kingham and Moreton-in-Marsh offer fast connections to London and west to Worcester and Hereford. Local buses run from Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water. There’s ample free parking, and plenty of scope to enjoy cycling to work.

A simple move

  • service charges

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.
