Location

Whittington, Shropshire, United Kingdom

Charming village and picturesque location, 2 miles east of Oswestry. 5 minutes from Orthopaedic hospital. It is just 20 minutes from Shrewsbury (A5), and 35 minutes from Chester (A483). When approaching Oswestry stay on the A483 or A5 and do not turn for Oswestry Town. Take the A495 signposted for Ellesmere off the Oswestry bypass and continue into Whittington over the railway level crossing. At the T-junction turn left staying on the A495. The property, Gablecroft is on the left few hundred yards past the Castle
The village itself has all you need including a local shop with postal services, two great eating houses: Ye Olde Boote Inn and The White Lion

Local Attractions

Whittington International Chamber Music Festival
May, yearly.

Whittington Castle Re-enactments and History Days.



Old Oswestry hillfort was first fortified three thousand years ago, and the views into Wales along Offa’s Dyke, just a couple of miles away, are stunning.

At popular family attraction Park Hall Farm a mile away a set of trenches has been recreated to represent the trench warfare of WW1 and other conflicts.

Pistyll Rhaeadr, a waterfall with a 240-foot drop off the edge of the nearby Berwyn Mountain range, is especially spectacular after heavy rain.

Walking across the 126-foot high Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is not for the faint-hearted!

And there are the castles of Chirk and Powis, and several Great Little Trains of Wales, all within half-an-hour’s drive.
