Oswestry is ideally situated on the border of North Shropshire and Wales and is nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Oswestry is the largest market town in Shropshire and is famous for its Iron Age Hillfort, nearby Whittington Castle and spectacular Llanraheadr waterfalls. The town is incredibly popular due to its good affordability for first time buyers and families. Nearby places such as Shrewbury, Wrexham and Chester are easily commutable from Oswestry, making it the perfect place to live for working people.

Steve Humphreys who is the Branch Manager at Your Move, Oswestry thinks "Oswestry is a fantastic town to live in and has a vibrant and friendly local community. There are very strong primary and secondary schools and good local sports clubs, including cricket, rugby and Oswestry local football team, The New Saints who play in the Welsh Premier League."

Oswestry offers a varied selection of properties, from shared ownership, Victorian & Edwardian terraced & semi-detached town houses and imposing detached family homes. There are spacious 1930s and 1960s semi-detached and newer developments from the 1980s up to the proposed edge of town development which have a range of designs and sizes from two beds to five beds.
