Find us at this postcode: RH17 6QH. We’re at Bowders Farm. Turn in and hang a left as soon as you can. The pod should be dead ahead.

 

Internet

The site has broadband / 4G Wi-Fi. Great for sending/recieving emails, web development etc. Not ideal for video work or any heavy upload applications.

Location

Bowders Farm is about an 8 minute drive from Haywards Heath train station. A 4 mile bike ride, or if you’re feeling brave, there are some great footpaths that get you very close.

Kitchenette

The pod offers free tea and coffee (including Nespresso and Pukka teas), has a fridge and the usual crockery and cutlery. Let us know if you want a sandwich or salad!

Facilities

Clean and functional loos, but in keeping with the Greendesking ethos, aren’t super luxurious.

Green Credentials

Almost all of our first pod is built from recycled materials, so whilst it’s not solar-powered just yet, we’re off to a strong start.

Panoramic Views

Our south facing 5 metre window provides glorious views over the Ouse Valley. Work away in a cosy environment while the weather does its thing right in front of you.

Fire Pit

We’re launching as winter draws close, so you’ll be delighted to hear that we have a firepit to enjoy with your coworkers.

Coworking

Naturally network with like-minded individuals. Build new relationships. Collaborate and make what you do, better.

What is Greendesking?

Greendesks aim to bring all the comforts of a typical office to remote and semi-remote locations. Historically, power consumption and internet connectivity have been the stumbling blocks for organisations like ours. Solar tech and the imminent arrival of 5G will make these concerns a thing of the past. That said, our environmental footprint is of great concern so you won’t see fields of solar panels and big HVAC units on our pods. Think of Greendesking as Glamping meets Hot Desking. Come dressed to be cosy and we’ll take care of the rest.
