Which length description are you looking for?:



lumber room

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'dropping preliminaries sleep with newly-wed' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'storage space' is the wordplay.
'storage' becomes 'lumber' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should give a lot more credence to this answer).

Can you help me to learn more?

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
