The latest buzz word is “workation” – a mashup of work and staycation – ie holidaying in the UK but still continuing to do some work each day. It’s also been called a “woliday”!
Now, more than ever, people are able to work from home. However, working from home often means you can work from anywhere. As long as you have your laptop and mobile with you, many people can, and are, choosing to work in other locations too. And if you can work just as well in the car or a local coffee shop, then why not on holiday? You no longer need to restrict yourself to weekends away and using your annual leave, you can go away on holiday, spend a few hours working, then enjoy your new surroundings for the rest of the day.
We’ve noticed this trend increasing here at The 25. Perhaps one partner pops into town to look round the shops or to explore a tourist attraction on their own whilst the other stays behind to get a few hours work done, then they meet up for lunch and they spend the rest of the day together.
The 25 is ideal for a workation with:
Fast, free reliable wifi in all rooms and reception areas
A quiet atmosphere, particularly during the day when there’s generally only us two in the building
A full size desk / dressing table in all rooms with plenty of space for your laptop and papers
Alternate working areas like a dining table in most rooms, or a comfortable seating area
Drinks on tap with a variety of hot drinks, Nespresso maker and complimentary bottled water in your room
Phone reception throughout the house
We can even arrange meeting space if required
Two suites have separate lounge areas so you can work in one room, and your partner can watch TV in the other
Plenty of free sockets including USB in all rooms
We even have a green screen you can borrow, so with your virtual background no one will ever know you're working from one of the best B&B's in the world!
And after a great night’s sleep, you’ll be ready for a few hours of quality time spent on working.
So if you have the ability to work from anywhere, why not consider working from Torquay and explore Devon at the same time as working? We’d love to see you.
