About this property

This stone-built property rests on the outskirts of Trefonen and sleeps up to four people in two bedrooms.

Two bedrooms: 1 x king-size and 1 x double. Bathroom with shower over bath, basin and WC. Kitchen. Sitting/dining room with woodburning stove.

Trefonen rests on the edge of the town of Oswestry and the Welsh village of Llanhaeadr-ym-Mochnant. Within in the small rural village you will find a pub, shop and has Offa’s Dyke pathway running through. Within the surrounding area you will find the Berwyn Mountain Range and a number of walking and cycling routes which includes Berwyn Ridge Pathway and the Offa’s Dyke Path.

In 1191, the name Oswestry was first mentioned as Oswaldestroe, which is believed to have come from the Old English name Ōswald and the word trēow, meaning ‘tree’. This suggests that the town’s name originally meant ‘tree of a man called Ōswald’. However, the Welsh name for the town, Croesoswallt, translates to ‘Oswald’s cross’, which is also a possible meaning of the Old English trēow. Hence, it is possible that the name of the town meant ‘Oswald’s cross’ in both English and Welsh. The town’s name is often connected to Oswald of Northumbria, who died in the Battle of Maserfield in 641/642. Although the location of the battle is disputed, it was assumed to be Oswestry for much of the twentieth century. However, A. D. Mills’s Dictionary of English Place Names suggests that the connection with King Oswald is uncertain.
