New co-working space for South Bristol parents


Caboodle co-working sessions with childcare aim to support both parents and carers

Bookings for Caboodle co-working sessions with four hours of childcare are now open! Sessions run every term-time Monday from 11th September at Windmill Hill City Farm, and are designed to maximise valuable work time and minimise stress and travel time. Under 5s will be taken care of in the Caboodle creche, whilst parents and carers concentrate in the nearby co-working space. At lunchtime, Caboodlers can enjoy a healthy buffet lunch, some informal networking and a wander around the farm.

Caboodle is a social enterprise and was set up in 2017 by three BS3 mums – Isabel Kearney, Ellie Freeman and Ellie Bowie – who all struggled to find childcare to fit around their freelance work. They saw an opportunity to develop a community business that would support other parents and carers in their situation, and Caboodle was born. 

Cofounder and Director Isabel Kearney said, “We’ve made it our mission to provide a space for mums, dads and carers to work flexibly, supporting each other to have fulfilling careers and healthy family lives, whilst their children blossom in versatile, quality childcare.

We can’t wait to start our coworking sessions with childcare at the farm and hope they make life a little bit easier for mums and dads in South Bristol.”

Coworking and childcare, coworking only, and sibling childcare tickets are available. Book online at or join Caboodle on Facebook at
