Windermere Works started life in the 19th Century as a biscuit and cake works, supplying the likes of Fortnum and Mason with sweet treats. It was bought by Harold Preston in 1993 and remained in the Preston family until 2021 with the family taking the property forward and overseeing its evolution into chic industrial style office space for up and coming businesses in the Lake District. In March 2021, Windermere Works Investments Limited took ownership of the building.
Windermere Works aim is to provide a dynamic, vibrant, inspiring workspace for like-minded people and an escape from lonely, unproductive home working. We also wish to foster up and coming businesses, growing with them from the starting point of a lone freelancer, right through to employing a team of 20.
