Our locations


WorkNest (formerly Ellis Whittam) is nestled in the picturesque village of Aldford, on the outskirts of historic Chester.

From more humble beginnings, we’ve made a home in Woodhouse – an impressive converted barn with a scenic backdrop that’s popular with colleagues and clients alike. It’s also a great location for our in-person events.
