Elsom Wood is a mature broadleaved woodland consisting mainly of oak with a few great maples. Hidden from public view, this plot is nestled at the back of a large wood that is serviced by a good quality hard track. It is accessed from the bottom of a valley where a seasonal pond attracts ducks and provides a convenient watering hole for the local wildlife. On our visits to the wood we have frequently seen sika and muntjac deer, along with trails in the vegetation made by badgers.
From the pond, Elsom Wood rises steeply to a flatter area with beautiful well-spaced mature trees which give this area an uncluttered feel. Dappled light flickers through the leaves onto the floor which is adorned with bluebells in the spring and grasses and ferns in the summer.
Elsom Wood is a quiet and secluded retreat with great accessibility, within easy reach of Romsley and only a few minutes’ drive from Junction 4 of the M5. Whether it be a woodland project or a place to spend time with the family, this wood is definitely worth a look.
An overage clause on this property provides for 25% of the increase in the value of the land upon the granting of planning permission to be paid to a previous owner up until April 2020. After this the overage clause lapses.
If It Were Mine
I would create a path around the pond and steps ascending the hill to the level area at the top, where I would create a small multi-purpose shelter that could be used as a hide or a base for woodland activities.

After a further 500 metres stay on Farley Lane through the left bend and in 200 metres the woodland entrance is signposted on the right.
The woodland entrance is set back from the road. The locked steel gate has a woods4sale sign on it.
Park safely without blocking access. I’m sorry but we do not give out keys for viewing.
Climb over the gate (point A on the plan) and walk following the hard surfaced track straight down the hill for circa 860 metres. At the bottom of the hill beyond the hedge is grazed grassland pasture (point B on the plan).
