Living in Presteigne: the local area guide

Want to escape to leafy green lanes, which expose gorgeous period properties and the verdant countryside at every turn? Then Presteigne, a small town and community in Powys, is the choice for you!

Set in the Welsh Marches along the border of England and Wales, the town boasts a rural, quiet charm. One that has attracted many to settle here. Especially those who work in Hereford, Shrewsbury and Birmingham.

It’s not just buyers who have noticed Presteigne’s greatness, though, a Country Life editor considered the town to be one of the top 10 small towns in Britain back in 2006. However, the town did not always boast such a glamorous title. It had, in fact, been besieged several times by the plague and suffered from periods of inactivity. Fortunately, in the late 20th century, the town realised it’s potential in the manufacturing and tourism sector and has been on an upward growth ever since.

Today, Presteigne is also a popular place to retire. The town and surrounding area offers something for everyone. From shooting clubs to picturesque walks along the England-Wales border (Offa’s Dyke Path) and the chance to immerse yourself in the history of the town.

Demographics

If you do decide to purchase a property in this quaint town, you’ll find that the locals are friendly and welcoming. Presteigne’s two annual festivals epitomise this - Sheep Music and The Presteigne Festival of Music and the Arts.

According to the 2011 Census, 2,710 people reside in the town. They are split into 1,241 households – the majority of which are detached properties. As of 2011, 44% of the population are in employment and work in Presteigne or commute to the larger hubs in Powys, Shropshire or Herefordshire.

Education

Though you are not blessed with several schools in Presteigne, the one primary school that does exist in the town, is one of a high standard.

Presteigne C.P. School was rated as ‘Good’ back in 2011 by Estyn, the Welsh education authority. Pupils here are well supported and leave with excellent attainments by the end of their term. 100% of pupils achieve the expected level at Foundation phase and 100% achieve Level 4 in core subjects at the end of Stage 2.

For children of secondary age, schools can be found in the towns of Kington, Lucton, Wigmore and Bedstone – a mere drive or bus journey away. Schools here offer secondary and post 16 education. For those seeking independent schooling, institutes can be found in Bedstone and Lucton.

Transport

As Presteigne straddles the border, it is blessed with excellent links to hubs in Wales and England. Kington and Knighton can be reached in 14 minutes by car, Shrewsbury in over 1 hour, Hereford in 50 minutes and the bustling hub of Birmingham in just under 2 hours. These attractive proximities are part of the reason, many enjoy living in Presteigne.

If, however, you don’t own a car, buses also serve the area. As there is no train station present in the town, you must travel to nearby Knighton, which is where the closest station can be found. On top of this, the Radnor Ring, a cycle route, enables keen cyclists to travel to towns (Knighton, Knucklas and Llandrindod Wells) situated along the cycle track!

Amenities and shopping

Quaint cafes, restaurants, independent boutiques and a supermarket are all available for your perusing. The Salty Dog, in particular, is an interesting place to pick up your fresh fruit and veg. Upon entry, customers are given a wicker basket and can even sample produce before they buy it!

If you are feeling peckish, a superb Michelin-starred restaurant can be found a few minutes away in Ludlow. If, however, you wish to partake in some retail therapy, the hubs of Hereford and Birmingham are never too far away.
