With lots of history and easy links to locations throughout England and Wales, Gobowen could be the ideal location for your new home. Enjoy this beautiful Shropshire village that’s brimming with possibilities.
An area steeped in history
The village is home to a Grade II listed railway station that has stood since the 19th century. The unique white exterior can be easily recognised, adding a Mediterranean touch to north-west Shropshire. From here, trains run every day to cities such as Cardiff and Birmingham, as well as a direct link to Shrewsbury. Valuable services if you’re looking to commute for work or leisure.
However, you don’t need to go far to find all the modern commodities you need. In Gobowen, is a local Co-op and pharmacy for all your day-to-day needs. Want to go out for something to eat and drink? Head to the Cross Houses for some traditional pub grub or go further up the A483 to enjoy an Indian dining experience at Mumbai Maska. However, if that isn’t enough, Gobowen is just 3 miles north of Oswestry, a market town that has a wide selection of supermarkets and stores.
An educational infrastructure to suit all pupils
While Gobowen has lots of opportunities to send your children to school – with a wide range of nurseries, primary and secondary school establishments – there are also places for those who need extra support. The Derwen College specialises in giving people with learning difficulties, or those who need a helping hand with their learning, the support and inspiration they need to fulfil their potential.
An action-packed area for all
Living in Gobowen gives you access to an array of sports facilities to enjoy. Within the village is the local cricket club and playing fields, where you can find grass roots teams playing every weekend. You also have the highly recommended Henlle Park Golf Club, an 18-hole course that’s perfect for making the most of the summer months.
Speaking of which, you won’t be lost for options when it comes to outdoor activities. Shropshire is known for its beautiful landscapes and rewarding walking trails, and Gobowen is no different. Much more than the quaint and historic village than everyone knows, Gobowen is full of countryside that stretches to the Welsh border, with every single square mile worth immersing yourself in.
