Life at Ransom Wood is about little stories that make the place a community– the world cup, the lost dog, the chickens in the quad, horses loose by the willows, the case of the squirrel stealing the office apples. Over the years we have had a scuba dive training school using our old water tanks, the fire service using the old hospital tunnels to simulate fire evacuations in and much more.
Over the years we have seen a rapid expansion of entrepreneurs moving into the park and each of these adds to our story. Our tenants have a real ownership in the site – take for example Carol at Brides at Mothers who puts flowers in the planters outside her rooms putting a smile on peoples faces when hey arrive. In beech house we even have a business with a greenhouse on their office terrace.
Dogs have also become a part of the Ransom Wood story – many people on the park bring their dogs to work including my Lab Thanda. We even had a resident bringing their chickens in – what a great continuity to the past when the hospital used to keep live stock here.
The park squirrels also add a special character – there is a camicazy army of them – as you go up the drive they line up and wait till you are about to pass then they jump out at you. You arrive at your office, park up and then they sit in the trees and bomb you with acorns.

As part of our 20th anniversary we are writing a history series on all our properties. In this latest article we look at Ransom Hall from 1902 to the late 80s.
Love this place
We rent an office here and it’s just such a lovely place to drive into everyday
Still love to walk around. I used to live in the big house at the top of the drive, it was Oak House then and I nursed at Ransom Hospital , Byron Ward which was on the left side of Ransom Hall car park. Oak House used to be Sisters accommodation. I think the main chef lived upstairs when I lived there and just me downstairs mostly. I loved it but had to keep my kitchen door closed because of the squirrels. Loved looking down the drive out of my bedroom and lounge windows, beautiful in Autumn and when it snowed, I worked at Ransom Hospital until it closed in 1987. Wonder why Oak House was later named Ash House? Lovely dining at Forever Green in the grounds whilst I reminisce.
Absolutely spot on as regards setting up a virtual office. Really friendly and helpful reception staff, with onsite meeting rooms available if needed. Very pleased.
Great place for taking pets a walk, lovely cafe with meeting rooms.
A great place
Brilliant place, they have all sorts of businesses there. A cafe, hypnotherapy, hypnopuncture as well many others. Worth a drive up just to see what's there. Furthermore, it's in lovely surroundings.
