The Coach House is a detached cottage in the owners' grounds, in the village of Norton, five miles from Bridgnorth and Ironbridge. The cottage has a double bedroom, which leads to a small single room, suitable for a child under 12. There is a family bathroom, and a ground floor cloakroom. The kitchen has a small breakfast area, while the sitting room has a dining area and electric fire. Outside is off road parking, and a patio with furniture. The Coach House makes a welcoming retreat for a couple or small family to enjoy Shropshire, from Shrewsbury to the Severn Valley Railway, RAF Cosford to NT Attingham Park and Ludlow to the many museums of Ironbridge.
Bridgnorth is an interesting market town of two distinct halves separated by a red sandstone bridge - The High Town and the Low Town. The two halves are linked by meandering streets and steep steps, and the sheer funicular railway allows visitors to glimpse "the finest view in all my kingdom", as Charles I put it. There is a lively Saturday market which showcases the local fayre, and the River Severn, which flows beneath the precipitous castle ruins offers many lovely walks. The steam and diesel engines of the Severn Valley Railway run between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster through pretty country stations. Bridgnorth is surrounded by an abundance of country parks, historic houses, interesting museums and chocolate box Shropshire villages, and also affords ease of access to the 10 museums of Ironbridge Gorge and the Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford. The vibrant destinations of Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Church Stretton are within easy reach, and the surrounding area offers its visitor superb walking and cycling opportunities.
A E Houseman once wrote that Shropshire was "the quietest place under the sun" and today the county remains something of a rural idyll, recognised as one of the least crowded and most peaceful regions in England.
