perfect coastal retreat UK | Thorganby Hall



If your working life has changed and you can be more flexible now, Marris Barn is a great place to spend a mid-week Workcation. With excellent WiFi connection throughout and plenty of space to work from, you could bring your Work Team away to spend some bonding time together. It’s a beautiful setting, your team can take advantage of all the leisure facilities and enjoy the fantastic walking and cycling routes right from the doorstep when you have some downtime.  You could even hire in a local chef, yoga, pilates or art teacher for relaxation and fun in the evenings.

Or perhaps the change to working life means you can now get away more with your family and friends? You could all come away on holiday together even if you don’t have any time off due. Simply work remotely whilst the rest of your group enjoy some great days out exploring the area. Then all meet up at the end of your working hours to spend quality time catching up with your nearest and dearest.
