The Sylva Wood Centre

The Sylva Wood Centre is a 12 hectare site in South Oxfordshire, and is firmly rooted in the local community. We have a community of Wood Centre businesses, the Sylva Wood School, the Future Forest, including a Forest School site, and the House of Wessex.

Business Incubation

We provide facilities to support business incubation, including start-up units, shared workspaces, and hot-benching facilities.
