Based in the historic market town of Barnard Castle but with quick access to major transport routes such as the A66, Enterprise House offers businesses of all sizes in the Teesdale area a complete one stop shop for all their business resource needs.

For those that do not need a desk five days a week or require just the occasional place to work (and want to keep costs down) Enterprise House offers offices to hire at just £5+VAT by the hour.  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.

As well as office rental, our facilities include hotdesking and rooms for casual meetings and brainstorming sessions. And our friendly administrative team are always on hand to help both visitors and clients headed up by Lynn Todhunter.

Lynn Todhunter - Customer Services Manager

Lynn Todhunter - Customer Services Manager

I 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.


Emma King - Customer Services Assistant/Events Coordinator

Originally from Hertfordshire, I have been in the North of England for many years, having lived in several different counties before finally settling in beautiful Teesdale.  I have a wide range of qualifications and a rich and varied career history which has equipped me with a broad skillset.  I have a strong background in customer service, public engagement and events which has depended upon strong administration, organisation and communication skills.    

I joined Enterprise House in April 2019 as Customer Service Assistant and Events Co-ordinator.  I support Lynn Todhunter with the general day to day running of the office services provided by Enterprise House.  I am also the coordinator for Teesdale Business Awards, and other events.  Plus I maintain our social media accounts and assist with marketing.




Alastair Dinwiddie - Chairman

Alastair Dinwiddie - Chairman

Born 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.
