About the Wincombe Centre

The Wincombe Centre provides a friendly, professional and encouraging business office space environment for both new and growing businesses in Shaftesbury, Dorset.

Most of our Licensees are small businesses, some just starting out, others long established.  At The Wincombe Centre you will find yourself with like-minded people and our on site management offer a friendly and supportive presence to ensure the smooth running of the property, leaving you free to get on with running your business.


Signing up and moving in can be done on the same day with as simple 2 page Licence Agreement and weekly inclusive licence fees.  No need for costly legal fees.


Our weekly fees are inclusive of all utilities, property insurance, maintenance, parking, common parts cleaning and waste disposal.  No hidden costs.


The Centre has a wide range of units suitable for one man to eight man operations.  With our EASY IN EASY OUT terms, you need only give two weeks’ notice to leave or to relocate within the centre, giving you the ability to respond directly to the needs of your business and to optimise cost effectiveness.

You have access to your unit 24/7 and clients will be able to visit your unit via your block entrance.  In addition to this, reception is open from 9am – 2pm daily, with our management team on hand to help and advise, plus mobile phone support out of these hours.

Meet the Team

Wendy joined The Wincombe Centre in 2009, having come from a public relations background. She is highly regarded by the tenants and is a really helpful support to have around the centre.  From booking the meeting room to organising network lunches, Wendy really brings the Centre alive.

‘I’ve been here at the Centre since the Partners took over.  They have invested a great deal over the last six years and I have seen the Centre grow and become the vibrant business hub that it is now. It’s a great place to work and to network with other like minded businesses and I really enjoy following all of their successes.’

 Anne Wilkins (Our Receptionist / Administrator)

Anne joined the centre in January 2014, and is a much loved addition to the reception.

‘I thoroughly enjoy getting to know all the businesses here. It’s been great to get to grips with the administration and provide a good support for Wendy. No two days are ever the same here, so it’s a great place to work.’




Rob, David and Brian (The Partners)

The Wincombe Centre is run by a Partnership.  They  can be seen regularly onsite for their management meetings, and take a real interest in the Centre and all its businesses. 

‘We’re really proud of the Wincombe Centre, it’s finally becoming the Centre of excellence that we envisaged when we first took over and began the first of many conversions, taking us from 11 units to the 44 that we have now.

We have seen real growth and success in the businesses based here.  Hopefully we provide a good, reliable service to small businesses in North Dorset, with our easy in easy out licences and great meeting room facilities.
