Beautiful Bath; arguably one of England’s most beautiful heritage cities is certainly not short of hot-desking spaces.

If you think it’s all Georgian architecture and Jane Austen fanfare, you might want to think again. In the last few years a flurry of new coffee shops have opened and the city’s fast becoming a hot bed for new coffee talent. Coupled with some great interiors, here’s our pick of the best hot-desking spaces …for days when the office just won’t do.

Society  Café

What’s not to love about Society Café? A local independent with sites in Bath, Oxford and now Bristol, each one is designed with the local community in mind. Bath is its original home, which is probably why the locals there are spoilt for choice with not one, but two sites to satisfy their caffeine fix.

Our favourite is the very first, located on the sunny corner of Kingsmead Square. Spread across two floors and a few different rooms, there’s plenty of space to sit in and zone out.

Serving exceptional Origin coffee, the pastries, sandwiches and soft drinks supplied by local suppliers Bertinet Bakery, Barefoot Oxford and Breckland Orchard deserve a special mention too.

Our favourite hot-desking space? Inside to the right – a secluded room with views out over Kingsmead Square.

Colonna and Small’s

Think coffee, think Bath, think Colonna and Small’s. If you’re after a good coffee and we mean a seriously good coffee, you’d be hard pressed to find a better cup anywhere in the UK, let alone the south-west.

Bold of us to say perhaps, but then co-owner Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood does boast a modest three titles from the UK Barista Championships.

Situated on the south side of Queen Square, the inside is spacious and serene – a far cry from the busy nature of Bath’s more mainstream coffee shops.

And it doesn’t stop there, hidden out the back is a tranquil courtyard garden; a veritable sun trap and the perfect spot to catch up on your emails, any morning of the week.

The Loft

Away from Bath’s main tourist trail, this concept store has been a firm favourite with locals since opening in 2010. Part interiors, part fashion, part florist, it’s also home to Caffe Lucca, an italian inspired café serving colourful mediterranean salads, coffee and exquisite cakes.

Historically the home of Victorian drapers and department store, ‘Evans and Owen’, there’s loads to love architecturally, thanks to the original engraved tiling, high ceilings and grand regency entrance.

What’s more, given its location on the upper slopes of Bath city centre, the space affords plenty of natural day light all day long, proving to be one of the favourite hot-desking spaces in the area.
