The Oswestry Property Market

With its porticoed coaching inns, red-brick Georgian townhouses, award-winning bookshop and black-and-white half-timbered cottages, Oswestry is a charming market town located in the English county of Shropshire, approximately 5 miles from the Welsh border.

As one of Shropshire most popular towns, Oswestry enjoys an impressive selection of affordable homes, some great schools and relatively close proximity to towns such as Shrewsbury, Wrexham, and Chester, making it an ideal location for first-time buyers and families.

With a diverse range of residential property, including cottages and Georgian townhouses in the centre, Victorian & Edwardian semis and townhouses in the suburbs and a number of new build developments on the edge of town, the choice of properties is excellent. There are also a number of commercial properties available both in the town centre and on the outskirts.

Highlights of the Oswestry Property Market

Education

There are a number of good primary and secondary schools in the Oswestry area.

This includes three ‘Good’ primary schools, as rated by Ofsted, within 1 mile of Oswestry. This number increases to ten schools if you expand the radius to 5 miles.

The Marches School is the one ‘Good’ secondary school within 5 miles of Oswestry.

Transport

Although Oswestry does technically have a railway station, it is purely there as a Grade II listed heritage station, having closed in 1966. The nearest railway station is Gobowen, located just a 9-minute drive to the north of Oswestry. Gobowen station has hourly trains to Wrexham (18 mins), Chester (40 mins) and Shrewsbury (18 mins), as well as daily trains to Liverpool Lime Street and Birmingham International.

Oswestry provides good road access to the surrounding larger towns, with Wrexham 25 minutes down the road, Chester, and Shrewsbury about 40 minutes away and access to the M6 just over an hour away.

Shopping and eating

The Oswestry area offers a good range of high street stores and smaller independent shops. Specialist shops, such as the award-winning Booka, a much-loved bookstore and Upstairs Downstairs a specialist cookware shop, are two popular examples.

There are also many places to eat, including The Dining Rooms, Wilsons and the vegan cafe, Fat Rabbit.

Oswestry is also blessed with more than its fair share of pubs for a town of its size, with the Bailey Head and The Oak Inn proving ever popular.

Leisure and Culture

There is no shortage of things to do and places to see in and around Oswestry.

Located on the northern perimeter of Oswestry, Old Oswestry Hillfort is one of Britain’s best preserved Iron Age hill-forts. Built and occupied during the Iron Age (800 BC to AD 43) Old Oswestry Hillfort is hailed for the exceptional condition of its multiple ramparts and offers stunning panoramic views over Shropshire, North and Mid Wales and Cheshire.

Initially raised in Norman times, Whittington Castle was rebuilt in the 13th century with stone towers, a barbican, and a moat. Located just 3 miles outside Oswestry, the Marches Castle was restored in the 2000s through a local fundraising effort and offers re-enactment battles on the first weekend in May, a living history weekend in late July and over 12 acres of rambling parkland to explore.

Another great way to spend a day is to take a visit to the British Ironwork Centre, a 90-acre site boasting an impressive forge, local silversmiths, and an outdoor sculpture park with over 100 metal exhibits, including the impressive Knife Angel, composed of over 100,000 blades.

There are many other local attractions, including the Cambrian Railways Museum, Oswestry Town Museum and Cae Glas Park, a stunning park with formal flower beds, crazy golf, a bowling green, tennis courts and a play area for young children.

Nature and the Great Outdoors

Oswestry is surrounded by beautiful countryside and offers the keen rambler or wildlife enthusiast countless opportunities to get out and about.

Another option is the hugely popular Park Hall Countryside Experience. This award-winning attraction allows children to interact with a vast array of animals, including everything from cow milking demonstrations and pig racing to grooming ponies and seasonal feeding of lambs. The Park Hall Countryside Experience is so much more than just an open farm, it also has an educational value too, with four museum areas that recreate a Victorian schoolroom, an Iron Age roundhouse, and trenches from the First and Second World Wars.
