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.

How much?

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

Home office space is either available while the homeowner is away at work, or in spare rooms within the property that aren’t otherwise being used. The types of space and terms of use are different for every property.


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.

The benefits of a Hermit home office


homes are better situated, with a good access to public transport


businesses have their own space and don’t have to share with other businesses


homes provide more comfortable amenities like kitchens, sofas and private bathrooms


we provide one month rolling contracts to businesses and homeowners

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.
