Welcome to Britain’s coolest office, which has a meeting room in a tree house, nature trails and even a pub for after-work drinks.

The £15m headquarters of answering service Moneypenny in Wrexham is set in 10 acres of rolling North Wales countryside and every seat in the office has a view.

The company is known for parties and celebrations, including themed nights at its own pub, Dog ‘n Bone, which offers a selection of draft beers, real ales and house wines.

Incredible images show the company’s meeting room in a tree house perched 20 feet above the front desk.

Life size models of giraffes and sheep are also scattered around the building to amuse workers as they go to meetings and breaks.

Workers enjoy complimentary breakfast each day and employees have access to a gym Games room with foosball and pool table and chill out areas with bean bags and armchairs.

The company currently employs around 900 people, but the company is on a recruitment drive to hire around 70 more people.







The office even has its own pub

Newcomers are given a “desk budget” to personalize their workspace with new lamps, and employees are encouraged to engage with their peers as much as possible.

A spokesman said: “There are many small details that make the atmosphere of the office so special.







The main hall of the office is quite impressive…

“There is no hot-desking, employees are encouraged to personalize their desks and each desk is acoustically designed so you don’t hear other people answering the phone.

“Eating at desks is not prohibited, but people are encouraged to socialize and eat together.

“That’s why the dining areas are so beautiful.

“There are also small corners in the building with armchairs so people can have a quiet time reading during their lunch break.

“We obviously had to close the office during the pandemic but I would say the vast majority of people are back in the office now.

“People really wanted to come back.”

While the office was closed, managers arranged for each worker to receive either a roast turkey or a roast nut for Christmas through their “cluck and gather” program.







The company even has its own on-site gym

Group CEO Joanna Swash said: “As a company we have never done anything in a conventional way and creating a brilliant atmosphere and a happy place to work was really important to us.

“When we made the decision to build a new headquarters, we asked ourselves how we can make sure our people are happy there?

“The answer was simple – ask her.

“We didn’t want to create a great workplace based on someone else’s vision of brilliance; we wanted it to be a place our employees love.”
