As we reach this milestone its good to reflect on how far we have come as a team and how the Ransomwood community has grown.
Back in 1999 our 70 acre woodland business park was home to just 10 companies. Today we welcome over 100 businesses to the park every day – that’s around 1,00 people.
The last 20 years has seen lots of activity, positive initiatives and exciting projects, all of which have culminated in the business park you experience today. We have increased out letting space on the park with our more recently built offices at The Willows and Laurel House. this was followed by Birch House which is rated excellent by BREEAM.
Our restaurant, Forever Green, was completed in 2005 and provides a light and airy space for coffee or lunch as well as being a popular wedding and events venue in the local area. In 2017 we completed a substantial refurbishment of our conferencing facilities in our business centre at Ransom Hall. The Elements Suite is a unique place to host an event whether it be a small meeting, training session or conference.
Another major project was the installation of our solar farm – over 2,000 photo voltaic panels spread over three acres provides up to 450 KW of power which contributes to the running of the park every day.
We’re so proud that our company has grown in this way, and that we count local, regional and national businesses among our park residents, including small, medium and large-scale organisations.
We don’t know what the next 10 or 20 years will bring, but we can promise the same level of commitment and service that has come to define our business and reputation.

Life at Ransom Wood is about little stories that make the place a community – here we look at a few of our stories that make us more than just a business park.

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.
Just go there and walk for miles! Beautiful views from strawberry hill too.
