Don't need an office, but need something better than sitting in Costa Coffee all day, feeding yourself on caffeine and free wifi? Then maybe hotdesks are perfect for you. So you pay maybe £5/day for drinks in a coffee shop whilst you work. That's roughly £25/week or £100/mth. A few of the 28 Local Enterprise Agencies within the business parks and advice centres in our network offer hotdesk options at roughly this price.

However, compared to working in Costa/Nero, hot-desking in a Local Enterprise Agency means that you're surrounded by other businesses and so can feed off their energy, allowing you to network and collaborate. You also have access to meeting and conference facilities for those important business meetings when you need to look bigger and more professional than you are, security (no need to pack everything up when you need the loo!) and reception facilities.
