Border landscapes to make you stop and stare.

Border landscape near Oswestry are awesome, stunning, wild – “A little bit of heaven on earth” was how Lloyd George described the Ceiriog Valley and we think that can be applied to all of this lovely area – where Shropshire meets Wales.

Almost surrounding Oswestry, the Welsh foothills look over the town and views from Old Oswestry Racecourse and Llanymynech rocks stretch across the Shropshire plain towards Ellesmere. Both the Ceiriog and the Tanat valleys lead deeper into Wales and take you to such delights as Llanrhaeadr waterfall and the Berwyn Mountains, not to mention charming villages with more than one country pub waiting to welcome you.
Enjoy the tranquillity of waterside havens such as Ellesmere, Lake Vyrnwy and the towpaths of the Montgomery and Llangollen canals for a more peaceful view of the Borderlands and as you wander around look out for award winning and unusual gardens. For a more natural landscape, why not search out the wildlife meadows? See bluebells each spring or, if you are lucky, you may even spot a bee orchid.
There have been a few rogues living in these Borderlands over the years and you can visit the haunt of on Humphrey Kynaston at Nesscliffe, this country park will show Shropshire spread beneath you as you wonder about our highwayman’s antics in years gone by. ‘Mad’ Jack Mytton was another who would have enjoyed the old racecourse but now you are more likely to see dog walkers than hear thundering hooves.
