Straddling the Anglo-Welsh border, our Oswestry holiday cottages are firm favourites with lovers of history and countryside. Once an important frontier town, an ancient hill fort looms high above while Offa's Dyke National Trail marks the boundary. This unique setting allows you to pop in and out of England and Wales as many times as you like during your Oswestry cottage stay, giving you a real feel for the fusion of cultures.
On the Welsh side are historic treasures like the castles of Chirk, Powis and Whittington, said to be the former home of that famous pantomime character! Natural delights, meanwhile, include Lake Vyrnwy and Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall, the highest in Wales.
Also close to your holiday home in Oswestry is the spectacular Pontcysyllte Aqueduct World Heritage Site, built by Thomas Telford - if you've a head for heights, experience mind-boggling scenery and travel across by horse-drawn barge.
Family days out include woodland walks and picnics in Nesscliffe Country Park, mini Land Rover rides and more at the award-winning Park Hall Farm and many other fantastic days out in and around Oswestry in Shropshire.
Back in town, join a themed walking tour and discover Oswestry's nooks and crannies. Much of the centre is a designated Conservation Area, with a wonderful mix of architectural styles. Dip in and out of the attractive shops, the tempting eateries and cosy pubs. And don't miss a trip to the market (three days a week) or monthly farmers' market.
