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.
