Whinfell Forest, Cumbria

Nestled on the edge of the Lake District, Whinfell Forest offers a tranquil working environment. Keep a look out for the playful red squirrels on your walk through the forest into work. The lodges at Whinfell Forest are unique, built in a traditional Scandinavian style. At the heart of the village is the picturesque lake, a lively spot for guests enjoying water sports. Get the very best views (and Instagram-worthy snaps) at the Lakeside Inn, a homely gastro pub on the edge of the lake. And with public transport available to the village for colleagues, you’ll get to enjoy this gorgeous environment every day.
