FREELANCERS, designers, business and self-employed people are being invited to take a trip to the beach.

As of November 9, DeskLodge, based in Belvedere House, Basing View, is again providing companies with a unique, co-working office space with a beach-like area filled with beach huts as sound-proofed telephone cabins, a watermill-style meeting room and a New York-themed area with rooms named after the city’s famous streets, murals and amusing memorabilia.

Desklodge founder Tom Ball said: “Basingstoke is a somewhat hidden hotbed of innovative small companies and ambitious larger companies, keen to attract great talent. DeskLodge Basingstoke has something for both these types of companies.”

“Basingstoke is also easily accessed and beautifully located between the great incubator universities of London, Surrey and Southampton. We’re proud to be a pioneer in the town’s new Enterprise Zone.”

DeskLodge aims to create a collaborative community where freelancers mix with cutting edge established companies, enjoying the benefits of their enriching workspace without the hassle of building maintenance and management.

Freshly ground coffee and tea are also on tap for free as is super-high-speed WiFi and internet connectivity.

Much of the Desklodge office space is now available for rent.
