The ancient market town of Oswestry lies just a stone's throw from the Welsh border, and has a long and fascinating history that dates back almost 1,000 years. The medieval town is made up of winding narrow streets, old churches and little independent shops, all encircled by the old town walls. As you amble around the town, you can admire the layers of architecture, from Georgian properties to slanted half-timbered Tudor houses. There are plenty of things to do when you stay in an Oswestry bed and breakfast, like browsing the fascinating little museums to learn about the area's history or visiting one of the nearby castles.
The bed and breakfasts in Oswestry just feel right. Though the town has several hotels, nothing beats the homely atmosphere and friendly welcome of a B&B, plus they are often a fraction of the cost, meaning you can save your cash for the attractions and restaurants. It doesn't matter whether you're heading to Oswestry for outdoor adventures in the rolling countryside or an impromptu romantic break, there's always a B&B that fits the bill. Some are cosy little cottages with just a handful of guestrooms, that ooze character and personality. Others are a little more swish, with antique furnishings and traditional decor. Of course, there are several budget options in town, which offer much more than you would expect for the money. If you're sold on a B&B, the best place to start looking is Expedia, which lists every property, along with detailed descriptions and photos. All you need to do is filter the results by budget and date, and Expedia will do the hard work for you. Arranging your accommodation just got a whole lot easier.
If you're driving into town, look out for a bed and breakfast in Oswestry that has a free parking spot for your car. Checking in is always a breeze and, while you settle into your guestroom, you can flick on the kettle to make a pot of tea, jump onto the comfortable double bed and link up to the free WiFi to start planning your weekend ahead. Guestrooms come in all shapes and sizes, so if you're bringing the kids along, you won't have any trouble finding a B&B that offers family-sized rooms. The facilities are clearly listed on Expedia, so you'll know before you arrive if the guestroom has an ensuite bathroom, TV on the wall or views over Oswestry's historical monuments. Take some time to speak with the hosts, many of whom have lived in the town their whole lives and are more than happy to recommend the best things to do and see. Come daybreak, you can head downstairs to the dining room to feast on a proper English breakfast, accompanied by freshly brewed tea and coffee. If you're looking for more of a city break, you may enjoy the many activities in Manchester on offer, instead?
You won't be short of things to do when you come to stay in an Oswestry bed and breakfast. Newbies to the town shouldn't miss the ruins of Oswestry Castle, which has been standing in the same spot for almost 1,000 years. Then there's the English Heritage Old Oswestry Hill Fort, a large Iron Age fort that lies just outside the town, and is thought to have been there for more than 2,500 years. If you've feeling active, you could head over to the Oswestry Old Racecourse Common Heritage Site to go walking with the dogs, or ramble along Offa's Dyke Path. Back in town, there's no shortage of interesting little boutique shops, quaint cafes and the Lion Quays Spa, to help while away the afternoons.
