I didn't want to get a lodger as I wanted my home to myself in the evenings and weekends - Hermit lets you earn a monthly income whilst keeping your home to yourself when you want it.
We used to be in a serviced office, then we realised we were paying for facilities that we didn't need. Someone's home can provide all the essentials, whilst offering a more pleasant place to work.
We were looking for an office space that was private and comfortable but didn’t cost the world - Hermit Offices offer a great alternative to dreary office blocks.

Hermit exists to provide office space in residential properties. Small businesses work from someone’s home during the day, earning homeowners additional income for space they don’t need. Everybody wins.
We do this because we believe that commercial offices and co-working don’t suit many small businesses, who are often charged expensive rates for spaces that don’t accommodate their needs.
We aim to provide private office space in central London for less than £200 per person, per month. Exact costs depend on the specification of the space and the 'house rules' set by the homeowner.
Sharing space is more efficient
The benefit to the homeowner is that they can earn extra income from their home, whilst businesses can use private office space that is often 50% cheaper than the conventional alternatives.
