Is this the most picturesque office base in the North East?

Emerging businesses can set up base in a Georgian country house in Northumberland, with help from property agents.

Knight Frank has been appointed sole agent for Dissington Hall Enterprise Hub in Ponteland, following the expansion of office space at the Grade II listed house with a further nine office suites.

The business hub’s units range from 162 sq ft to 1,074 sq ft, totalling 3,500 sq ft overall.

Patrick Matheson, partner, office agency, Knight Frank, says Dissington’s spectacular setting offers a unique and inspiring office space.

The offices suites have Georgian architectural features overlooking the grounds and parkland and the hub itself it based minutes from the A1M and Newcastle International Airport.

He said: “For businesses seeking an individual setting Dissington has a great deal to offer with superfast broadband for all offices, structured CAT 6 building wiring and network equipment give each unit its own secure, private network and IP address.

“The connection is uncontended and offers quick, easy set-up and reliability.”

Dissington’s owner, Gill Brown, says the offer for businesses is to join a thriving business community with ample networking opportunities.

She added: “We are focused on flexibility and the delivery of a superior working environment with abundant car parking and meeting rooms. We are delighted to have Knight Frank representing us to take us forward.”

Dissington Hall Changes Track after 23 years:

Business owners Michael and Gill Brown who founded Dissington Hall conference and wedding business back in 1992 have decided to withdraw from the wedding market allowing the Hall to become fully dedicated to its corporate clients.

The launch in October this year of a further 9 stunning office units with views over the parkland will help to further establish the Hall as an enterprise hub.

This week DEFRA will be visiting North East Business Hubs including Dissington Hall to see how the RGN (Rural Growth Network) funding has been used to produce the new workspace, 2 of the new spaces are pre-let to small start-up businesses.

Michael and Gill paid tribute to their fantastic team who continue to deliver excellent weddings and events at the hall. They still hope to win the Best Wedding Venue Award for which they have been shortlisted in the last 3 years.

Michael Brown said “we are very proud of our record of providing high quality wedding receptions for a great many happy couples. Since taking our first booking in 1991 we have remained hands-on in the business and during that time we have helped over 1000 couples celebrate their wedding day. It is good to be ending that phase of our business on a high with a fantastic front of house team. We will still be taking new bookings in 2015 and plan to continue to work with the same chef who produced the first meals back in 1992.”

The Brown family will continue to own Dissington hall as they have done since 1968.
