Country charm. 21st century convenience.

Our rural offices, workshops and retail spaces provide a very different working environment to a town or city centre.

Freedom from traffic congestion and parking problems has attracted many companies to relocate. They enjoy the peace of the countryside alongside lightning-fast internet speeds.

A dream location

Want to be in the heart of the countryside, but not isolated? Many of our commercial properties lie in Wykeham a village just off the A170, six miles from Scarborough and 11 miles from Pickering.

There is free parking and Wykeham lies on a regular bus route.

Outstanding offices

A mix of traditional businesses such as solicitors and the more unusual such as a hearing clinic are based at Wykeham Business Centre.
