Somewhere Different Blackpool

in England, the UK 🇬🇧 and 1 other location        ✉️


A substantial Victorian house, historically a hotel for families working in the mills during the industrial revolution, just five minutes from the beach in the oldest working-class resort town in the world. Now transformed into a coworking/coliving space in the north of England with all the required facilities.

UK is expensive, not in Blackpool. You will have peer pressure to work in the week, not zone out and lose your way. We are here to provide you first and foremost a good productive work environment for you to get your online work done so you can experience non-touristy England at the weekends without a care in the world.

We do full moonwalks on the beach dunes if the weather allows. Horse riding, longboarding, walks in the English countryside. Day trips to Liverpool and Manchester…

Absolutely loved my stay at Somewhere Different! The cozy environment and Duncan's and Rica's dedication to creating a cool atmosphere were amazing. The community vibe was fantastic, with people often cooking together, going on trekking trips, and working from the coworking rooms. Blackpool itself added to the unique experience, offering plenty of character and fun activities every weekend. Duncan and Rica were incredibly friendly and went out of their way to ensure my comfort. The coliving atmosphere and coworking facilities were excellent. Duncan even took us on some walking tour of beautiful nearby places, which I greatly appreciated. Met amazing people from around the world and had lots of laughs. Can't recommend this place enough!
Awesome place! Awesome community! Duncan and Rica really take care of creating a cool, cozy environment. There are lots of opportunities to connect with other nomads. People often cook together, go on trekking trips, work together from one of two coworking rooms... Together with Blackpool itself that's such a unique and interesting experience. I totally recommend!
This place was exactly what I have been looking for as a digital nomad. I have been traveling for about a year now, and I haven't had a community this close while working ever! Blackpool honestly has a ton of character to it, as well as plenty of fun things to do every weekend. Shout to Rica for keeping this place nice and tidy, as I found that the clean surroundings lead to a better atmosphere. Having a private room is perfect for this living situation , as when I needed to decompress, or just have some me time, I was able to do so(all at a price that is cheaper than the local rent). Once my social batteries fill up again, I can pop out and enjoy the company of my fellow remote workers. I'll definitely come back here again! Thanks Duncan!
Somewhere Different UK truly is a place somewhere different.. and for all of the right reasons. The space is curated to provide remote workers with all of the amenities of a co-working space whilst striving to build community through a comfortable communal sense of living and interaction. I truly couldn't have felt more at home. Duncan, the one who owns and runs the operation, and Rica, who coordinates and maintains a lot of the place, are both extremely helpful, friendly, and responsive to any concerns you might have. Some really good people. While there, I met people from around the world who I now consider friends. Lots of laughs and events out were had and I imagine if you came, you would have the same! Also, plenty of things to do in Blackpool and the surrounding areas, much of which are an easy and affordable train ride away. I can't recommend this place enough (and hope to come back in some months time)!
Duncan was the perfect host for his accommodation for digital nomads. He proactively gets people involved in local activities and is generous to a fault. And he certainly has some interesting stories to tell. The housekeeper Rica is just as engaging and is a pleasure to spend time with. If you're a digital nomad or simply want to sample the lifestyle, I highly recommend you include Somewhere Different in your itinerary.
