Workaways at Selgars Mill
Need to work away from it all?
Book yourself onto one of our workaways for the week, or even just a few days, while you focus on a project. You could meet colleagues and work on a sprint together. Or you could use this as a chance to take a break from a busy office. Or perhaps you have been working from home and want a more structured work environment.
We’re creating the perfect campus for those in the new economy sector to come and study, work and play. And for one week you can book yourself into one of our beautiful rooms and use our coworking spaces and our grounds.
We run one workaway per month on the following dates. See here for more details and booking.

What is the New Economy Centre at Selgars Mill?
Selgars Mill is a secluded 19th century mill house nestled in eight acres of beautiful gardens with mature trees, a large vegetable garden, and private woodlands in Mid Devon just two miles from Tiverton Parkway Station or just off the M5.
The New Economy Centre is an immersive work and play campus for building a democratic economy. It's a space for those working in community businesses to come together, be inspired and do their best work, or simply rest.
The ground floor of the mill has been converted into ‘the Assembly Rooms’, a co-working space with a series of comfortable but practical workspaces set within the mill’s original heritage features. The first floor is the 'Training Space', a large open plan room with large tables, a smart screen, and a projector and drop down screen for presentations. The recently upgraded wifi is excellent and reliable, even with a multitude of devices at once.
We’ve also started a national collection of new economy literature in the People’s Library. We think it is the ideal space to swat up on new organisational structures, build a strategy, come up with new ideas or to deep dive into a work sprint and get some serious work done.

There is ample space for study, work and play over the four floors overlooking the stunning gardens whilst keeping a cosy and warm atmosphere with roaring fires. There is an enormous kitchen area with several fridges and multiple cooking appliance options and large, long dining tables. There are 10 rooms available to book, with some doubles, some twin and some triplet rooms. You can find out more about the campus here.
