Located in the South Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this traditional coaching inn has been welcoming travellers since the early 18th century. The Coach House in Norbury is the perfect spot to relax, eat and imbibe in stylish but unpretentious surroundings.
The individually decorated bedrooms are divided between the Main House and the three bedroom dog-friendly annexe. All rooms are fully equipped with premium pocket sprung mattresses, White Company bedding, flat screen TVs with freeview and Highland Soap Company organic toiletries. Some rooms overlook All Saints Church opposite; other look out toward Long Mynd and the South Shropshire Hills. A self-catering option is available at nearby two bedroom Sun Cottage.
The focus of the 2 AA Rosette-winning restaurant is on seasonal Shropshire ingredients from the region’s top artisanal producers. Chef Harry Bullock is a native of Shropshire, and his love of the county’s natural larder shines through on the plate. Fresh sourdough and levain breads are baked daily, and the lavish breakfast has garnered both the Visit England & the AA Breakfast Awards. The bar features a wide variety of local ales alongside a discriminating wine list featuring small producers.
The local area is a wonderful spot for lovers of the outdoors. The Shropshire Way passes within a mile of the hotel, and Offa’s Dyke passes 10 miles away. The trails on Long Mynd are loved by both walkers and mountain bikers. The lovely market towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow are within easy reach, as is the astonishingly well preserved Stokesay Castle.
