Oswestry

The ancient market town of Oswestry has a long and turbulent history, largely due to its location close to the border between England and Wales. It also makes it the perfect destination for those looking to explore North West Shropshire and Mid Wales.

Oswestry is a busy town, yet its cobbled passageways and friendly people give it an intimate, rural feel. Because much of the town centre is a conservation area, you''ll find many fine examples of Georgian architecture sitting alongside old timber framed buildings.

For a good family day out visit Whittington Castle; this 12th century moated castle is set in stunning grounds that are free to explore, and there''s also a second hand bookshop that''s well worth checking out. Other great family attractions in the area include narrowboat trips, the Cambrian Heritage Railway and Museum and Oswestry Leisure Centre, where you can enjoy a dip in the pool.

Outdoors enthusiasts will find plenty to keep them busy here, with a variety of cycling and walking trails to choose from. The Shropshire Way Oswestry Loop offers a range of walks and you simply have to see Llanrhaeadr Waterfall; it''s the highest waterfall in England and Wales at 240ft, and if you take the footpath to the top, you''ll enjoy amazing views!

If you’re here in the summer head for the Oswestry Food Festival in July, where you can taste the very best of local produce. The cafe culture in the town is second to none; try the Marches blue cheese, made locally, or treat yourself to a gourmet sausage roll. There''s even a vineyard nearby if you fancy a glass of locally produce wine!

    Drury Lane Barn is a fine example of a detached, traditional barn that has been sympathetically converted by its present owners to a high specification, with modern conveniences added for ease of use - visitors can also enjoy sole use of an indoor heated swimming pool and tennis court during their stay. Set in a slightly elevated position away from main roads, and on the owners’ estate, there are far reaching views across open countryside and meadows - making this a truly peaceful setting. Drury Lane Barn is situated less than 5 miles from Whitchurch - a compact Shropshire town just inside Shropshire’s border with Wales. It is a town steeped in history with an array of beautiful buildings that house shops, pubs and some very notable restaurants. Built in Queen Anne style, the distinctive St Alkmund’s Church dominates the town, and the courtyard off the Bullring survives as the last remaining of several which existed until the 1950s. Close by are the villages of Hanmer and Malpas, with the City of Chester, Shrewsbury, and Llangollen with its river, canal, mountains and wonderful views of the Welsh countryside, all within easy access.
    The barn’s central position on the Welsh, Shropshire and Cheshire borders makes it a perfect holiday base for exploring the sights of the three counties. There are a number of National Trust properties within an hour’s drive, and golf, fishing and horse riding are all available locally. Shop and pub 2 miles.
