If more formal meetings are required (for example for a pitch or for a presentation) there is a meeting and conference room with state-or the art AV equipment for hire by the half or the whole day. We can arrange refreshments and/or lunch if needed.
Enterprise House also offers a virtual office address where your post is directed and is either collected or can be posted out to you, as well as taking your phone calls if needed. Enterprise House can be put on your website and invoices for a professionaL look for your business.

Lynn Todhunter - Customer Services ManagerI consider myself to be a very fortunate person having been born and raised in the countryside of Teesdale. After leaving college I started work in an accountant's office in the town and spent 16 years preparing accounts and dealing with clients. After a career break to raise my son I joined Enterprise House and have been here since 1998. I am now Customer Services Manager and have an active part in the running of Teesdale Development Company Ltd as Company Secretary. I am the first point of contact for the tenants and any visitors who call at Enterprise House, which I see as a very important role. I try to make sure that their visit has been a pleasant and memorable experience that leaves a lasting impression. Over the years I have seen tenants successfully develop and grow their business; of course, there are some tenants who don't make it, but I will always feel privileged to have been part of their drive and ambition whatever the outcome may be.
Jacquie Warner - Customer Services Assistant
Having just moved to Barnard Castle from Suffolk, via Cambridge, London, USA and Germany, I am delighted to be joining Lynn as her assistant as she provides me with an excellent role model drawing on her extensive knowledge as I aim to provide similar support on reception– ‘turning my hand to most things’ – to companies here and also to users alike. With a background in PR and events, I am particularly looking forward to helping with the Teesdale Business Awards and the regular network meetings as well as assisting Lynn in attracting new tenants to work from Enterprise House. In my spare time, I spend a lot of time walking my dog, volunteering, and play the occasional game of tennis.
Alastair Dinwiddie - ChairmanBorn in London I grew up in Ireland, Germany and Malaysia before returning to school in Cumbria. I studied engineering at Edinburgh University, and many years later, business at London Business School. I have worked in the oil and instrumentation industries living a nomadic life covering the Middle East, Far East and Europe before returning to the UK in 89 and settling in Teesdale in 92 where I and my family have been based ever since. Over 20 years in one place, no wonder it feels like home!
I now run Aladin Enterprises Ltd, a business consultancy, working with various local businesses.
Being a part of a community is very special after spending less than 5 years in any one place; and where better to live and work than Teesdale and Wear Valley. Great people and great environment.
