Overton-on-Dee is a small but vibrant village of unspoilt charm, with beautiful surroundings on the Welsh, Shropshire and Cheshire borders.

Nestled in the lower Dee valley within close proximity to Wrexham, the market towns of Oswestry and Whitchurch with links to Chester and Shrewsbury, Overton-on-Dee is set against a backdrop of the stunning border countryside. This wonderful part of North East Wales is a pleasure to explore, once discovered there are endless hours of tranquil and relaxing walks, interesting sights, as well as some amazing family experiences to undertake. Overton is a good base from which you can explore the surrounding areas.
