I am looking to move to Turkey and would like to know some information about work permits.

I am a freelance website developer and I will be continuing to work with UK based companies and paying tax in the UK.
Are there any complications with doing this and will I need to have a work permit?
It would be great to talk to people who are doing something similar so I can get a better understanding if my hopes of moving to Turkey are realistic or not.

Thanks in advance!

No, you won't.
1. You are a freelance. And in turkey freelance people don't pay task generally.
2. You will just need a residence permit to stay here, actually you will be a long term tourist :)

But the question is how will you get your money? will they transfer the moeny to your bank account in uk? then it is ok but if you create a new bank account in turkey and if you get monthly payment to this account "tagged as salary at description" then they may investigate this. I hope this explanation is clear for you..
