Description   Woods in this part of Oxfordshire don't come on the market very often and here is the opportunity to acquire a multi-use woodland perfect for timber production, conservation, firewood and camping. Wide areas of bluebells are a welcome sight in spring. Centrally located in the dramatic Foresty Commission woods where their magnificant conifers are a favoured perch for the resident buzzard.

Part of Greyhone Wood is shown on most maps as Greyhone Shaw, the area to the north is integral with the larger area of Greyhone Plantation and Shaw. A mostly larch and Norway spruce plantation now semi-mature is ready for thinning. There is a bridleway along the eastern boundary and across the upper part.

Boundaries   posts with two strands of plain wire enclose the woodland and show the boundaries. These are mostly standing although in one or two parts fallen trees have pushed the fence over.

Access  is along a private right of way off Coldmoor Lane, a public highway. The barrier gate usually has a combination lock, the owner of Greyhome will have this code for their access. See below for details.
