Why Rent in the South West?

Mileway in the South West

The South West of England is a diverse and thriving region, stretching from major hubs like Bristol to Yate, Gloucester, Exeter, and even as far as deep Cornwall. And with great connections and plenty of opportunities, it’s an appealing place for businesses to be.

Mileway’s extensive portfolio in the South West includes some of our largest properties, as well as plenty of strategically located units that open easy access to the region’s growing population.

With a firm focus on manufacturing, the region is known for its innovation and attracts businesses that want to not only make the most of all the area has to offer, but also access the pools of talent that can be found right across the South West.

Connections, transport and major hubs

Our properties in the South West are well connected, with major transport links that make it quick and easy to transport products and materials to and from the region.

These include the M4, which connects Bristol with London to the east as well as Wales to the west, alongside the M5, which runs north to Birmingham and South towards Exeter. The rest of the region is served by more than 600 miles of motorway and strategic A-roads, including the A30 and A38, which link Exeter with both Plymouth and Cornwall.

Why here, and why Mileway?

Like nearby Wales, many businesses are drawn to the South West for its more affordable rents, as well as a lower cost of living compared to more intensely developed areas like London and the South East. This makes it possible to not only secure larger spaces, but also spend more on R&D, innovation, and efficient operations.

Mileway is leading the South West in sustainability, and making it a priority to update our properties in line with the latest technology. That includes implementing more efficient heating systems and LED lighting, as well as a host of other refurbishments designed to reduce the impact our units have on the environment. All to ultimately contribute to a cleaner logistics economy, and support the businesses we work with as they pursue their own sustainability goals.
