This area of woodland is affordable for those with a limited budget wishing to experience the joys of woodland ownership. Although small this wood has much to offer in terms of a varied broadleaf tree stock with some fine examples of mature beech and ash trees.

Byron Wood is easy to access along an adjacent woodland ride suitable for vehicle access. Furthermore Byron Wood is predominantly level and is therefore suitable for occasional camping trips where at the lower edge of the wood you can awaken to attractive views over open countryside.

As well as an appealing mix of mature trees and open glades the area is home to both roe deer and the elusive muntjac deer.

Sporting rights are included and the wood is covered by a tree preservation order. This does not restrict normal woodland management where a Forestry Commission management plan is in place.
