Live with wife in small wooded valley (5)
I believe the answer is:
'live' is the definition.
(I know that live can be written as dwell)
'wife in small wooded valley' is the wordplay.
'wife' becomes 'w' (abbreviation).
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'small wooded valley' becomes 'dell'' (I've seen this in another clue).
'w' placed inside 'dell' is 'DWELL'.
'with' acts as a link.
(Other definitions for dwell that I've seen before include "stay" , "Hang out" , "Abide, reside" , "Focus attention (on)" , "Inhabit" .)
