I have just the right coworking space for you!

Hi, I’m Kate McGlynn. I recently opened Bureau – a new coworking space in Hay-on-Wye. As a self-employed person myself, I know how important it is to have access to great advice and support. That’s why at Bureau, we’re committed to providing a workspace that’s welcoming and supportive for everyone.

Bureau is a perfect workspace for people who need to work away from home. We offer a quiet, well equipped environment where you can get your work done.

Bureau is based on the first floor of The Granary Restaurant in Hay town centre directly opposite the town clock. The Granary is my family’s business, so we want to make sure that our dining customers and coworking clients feel comfortable and welcome.

If you’re looking for a hot desk or coworking space in which to work, email me at info@bureauhay.co.uk

The pandemic changed everything…

The Granary, our family business, offers free internet to our customers and we noticed an increase in people using the restaurant to work away from home post-covid. We had stopped using the first floor of the building after the pandemic, so we thought we should make a dedicated facility for people needing to work away from home.



We’ve received brilliant support from Business Wales, and Gareth Jones (Founder & CEO of Town Sq – a group of 7 coworking spaces across Wales & England) has been an invaluable mentor.

I was introduced to Gareth through our first hot desk client!



I think timing is everything, take your time, be prepared, as we say in the catering world – ‘mis en place!’ – Get all your soldiers in a row before you launch. Be confident and keep on keeping on!

Bureau is here to help you establish a flexible work schedule that suits your productivity and creative needs.



Drop us an email and we’ll book you in – always lovely coffee and cake to welcome new starters!  Also, being above the Granary – beautiful fresh healthy food is available to be delivered direct to your desk! –  We also offer meeting and event catering on request.


From my point of view, your life is already a miracle of chance waiting for you to shape its destiny. — Toni Morrison
