6 Ways Heywood House helps businesses with the challenges they face

Work Life Balance

How can Heywood House help you with the challenges you face in business? Business challenges feature in all sizes of businesses. We have had a look at how we can help you with the challenges you may be facing.

1.Location, location, location

The location of your workplace can make a huge difference to the smooth running and growth of your business. The right location can allow you to be better connected to your clients, form part of your business identity, and set the tone and feel for clients coming to visit you, in addition to helping create a contented workforce.

Heywood House is a classic country estate surrounded by 30 acres of parklands just 25 minutes south of Bath and 5 minutes from Westbury mainline station which can take you straight to London, Bath, or Bristol. With a beautiful view of the Westbury White Horse, the vast array of greenery and nature is a soothing environment to be in, creating the feeling of space to breathe and room to grow. It isn’t out of the ordinary to look up from your desk and spot a deer or a squirrel nearby!

The historic house and its various outbuilding have been transformed into hi-tech offices and workspace, meeting rooms, co-working areas as well as a delicious café on site. The perfect location to work, meet, greet, and have the space you need to breathe.


2. Lasting First Impressions

With experts stating that it takes between five and fifteen seconds for someone to form a first impression, how would it feel to know that your client’s first fifteen seconds would be spent driving up to the stunning view of Heywood House and its surrounding grounds? Our professional yet non-corporate environment continues as you enter through the front door, with spacious and well-equipped meeting rooms, a building full of history and interest and an onsite café serving delicious, fresh, homemade lunches and barista coffee.


You can be sure that Heywood House would be strong brand support for your business and you will be content knowing that clients will leave with a strong desire to soon return and do business with you.

3. Networking

Being stuck in an isolated office each day can make it difficult for business owners to reach out to connect and meet other business owners and potential customers. Here at Heywood House, we provide a friendly yet professional business community with a social aspect that can be taken advantage of through our in-house events.

Our popular bi-monthly breakfast meeting, ‘Toast Talks’ is a perfect way for members and non-members to begin the working day, with a guest speaker giving a motivational talk on a variety of relevant and fascinating subjects, a delicious breakfast and an opportunity to network and connect with like-minded people. That’s a lot of productivity for an hour first thing on a Thursday morning, imagine how successful the rest of your day would be!

Since lockdown, we have introduced ‘Light Bites with…’ a series of FREE virtual lunchtime talks with some fantastic guest speakers to engage, stimulate, and connect the business community over your lunch.
