About the location


Oswestry 9 miles; Shrewsbury 12 miles.

Ruyton-XI-Towns takes its unusual name from a 12th century castle which was the manor of eleven local townships. Many of those townships still survive as villages today with Ruyton, Wykey and Felton being the most prominent. Baschurch is a large village near to Ruyton and is home to a village pub and shop. The ancient border market town of Oswestry is just a few miles away and has a selection of restaurants and all usual amenities along with its extensive and well preserved hill top Iron Age fort which is great for walking and views. Historic houses and castles with beautiful grounds locally include Chirk and Powis Castle, Erddig and Attingham Park. Shrewsbury is 12 miles away and is set within a giant loop of the River Severn. It is one of England's finest heritage towns with over 600 listed buildings. Explore the picturesque cobbled alleys and squares or enjoy some of the events and festivals that take place each year, particularly Shrewsbury's 'Summer Season' which caters for every age and interest. The town offers a superb selection of independent and high street shops, along with plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and pubs.
