From 17th century weavers to 21st century social entrepreneurs, Turnpike Farm has been home to generations of enterprising people. The roadside farmhouse is a business centre, whilst the barn behind is both home and workplace of Robert Ashton, the barefoot entrepreneur.
Right now you have the opportunity to base your business here too and rent an office. It’s a friendly place, where tenants share kitchen, toilets and a reception/meeting space. Your office is at the top of the stairs, with three work stations, whiteboard and views over the fields. The room has exposed timbers and is quiet.
The room has 257 sq ft so is perfect for three people. Rent is £600 + vat per month, reviewed annually with just one month’s notice to give if you outgrow the space and need to move.
Your rent includes:
· Heating lighting and cleaning
· Use of the phone system (calls charged at cost)
· Use of copier (there’s an honesty sheet for you to write down what you use)
· Use of communal areas, reception, toilets and kitchen
· Parking, either on site or on the adjacent lay-by
We’re scheduled to get fast broadband next winter (2017/8) but right now use a 3G system provided by Rural Broadband. This gives download speeds of 19mbps (upload 2.4mbps). If you take a room here you can apply for a grant here that will get you set up for free.
We’re literally yards from the top of a slip road from the Main A11 so very conveniently placed. We’re five minutes’ drive from Wymondham railway station and the Norwich – Attleborough bus passes the door every 30 minutes. We’re in the country, but well connected.
