As the summer is looming and challenges in and out the workplace continue, life goes on here at the Gattinetts.   The open and uncluttered feel of the site complete with plenty of trees and fresh air seems to make it easier, even if we can’t tell what’s lurking down the line in terms of a recession.

So if you’re looking for work space in the country, either workshops to rent or office space, then The Gattinetts Business Centre could be just what you’re looking for. Located conveniently between Ipswich and Colchester, The Gattinetts offers small offices for start-up businesses and larger units for companies with a few more employees as well as workshops. Just off the A12, The Gattinetts offers you the chance to work in the countryside with no more town centre traffic jams! We also offer secure storage space that can be used for business or personal use.  You need to be quick though!  Units don’t become available very often and they are snapped up fast.

In total we have around fifteen offices to rent ranging in size from 141 square feet to 2700 square feet inside. Renting office space at the Gattinetts Business Centre has several benefits; it is a peaceful rural location with a nice community feel and instead of wasting time in daily traffic jams, work close to home and avoid both long traffic queues and hefty car park charges.

Rent at the Gattinetts is low in comparison to a town centre office location and short term leases are available (12 months minimum).

Office units generally come with their own WC and kitchen facilities and heating from oil fired boilers.


On site there are 9 industrial units / workshops for rent ranging in size from between 307 square feet and 2800 square feet. The Gattinetts is a secure site, benefiting from a low crime rate compared to industrial areas in town. There is also good quality outside lighting and the entry gate is only accessed via key fob / intercom outside work hours.

You will usually need to provide your own adequate heating system for use in workshops / industrial units.


Here at The Gattinetts we offer secure storage space, which is convenient for people in the Ipswich / Colchester / Manningtree / East Bergholt area. Whether you require a lock-up for business equipment or somewhere to store furniture and personal belongings that have outgrown your house, we offer short term storage at very competitive rates.
