We attended a friend's wedding at Walcot Hall, Lexi and Sean could not have made the weekend easier with proximity, comfort and hospitality. Just 15 minutes from the venue, The Coach House provides high quality bedrooms with great touches from White Company linen/towels to homemade biscuits aside the usual in-room drinks facilities. Breakfast included high quality local products with homemade... More

Rooms recently renovated to very very high standard - best night sleep. Luxury cotton linen and bedding. Beautiful area. Perfect cooking by Sean and hosted by attentive Lexi. Relaxing and welcoming. Definitely will make a Trip to this idyllic b&b again. Perfect to take over the whole place for groups.

We had a lovely overnight stay here! This house is in a peaceful rural location and it's owners are setting very high standards- from their warm welcome to the delicious dinner, the well-stocked bar, the very comfy bed and linen, and the superb choice of yummy food for breakfast! A relaxing treat!

I visited The Coach House back in February with a group of friends for a countryside reunion. Sean and Lexi were so accommodating they reserved the whole place for our sole use. As most of these reviews already state, the food and hospitality here are fantastic. We opted not only for bed and breakfast but for evening meals too and... More

I don't normally bother with online reviews but The Coach Inn is worth the effort!! We had a wonderful stay at The Coach House in May after finding it on a booking site.

We've just spent the weekend at The Coach House and we're already planning our next visit. It's set in a perfect location, surrounded by beautiful, rolling Shropshire hills and is perfectly situated for walkers, both veterans and novices alike. The rooms have a tastefully understated, boutique feel, giving luxury without trying far too hard. Our room was immaculately clean, really... More

We had a couple of days in the Coach House which was perfect. Comfortable and with a very warm welcome, this B&B is ideal. Situated in a quiet hamlet with easy access to all that Shropshire has to offer its highly recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Coach House is a country house bed and breakfast situated in the conservation village of Norbury in the stunning South Shropshire Hills.  Come and find out exactly why they are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s a veritable playground for walkers, cyclists and photographers. The Shropshire Way passes within one mile of Norbury and there are a multitude of walks for all levels available from the front door. The peaceful, bucolic landscapes are perfect for romantic breaks or anybody seeking respite from a busy urban life. We are also the perfect venue for large group or family reunions. Formerly the Sun Inn, our ancient building has been providing accommodation, warmth & hospitality for guests since the 1700’s. Relax in our fully licensed lounge next to our wood burning stove with a good book, a glass of wine or a locally made artisanal beer.We currently have 6 well appointed rooms. 5 are en-suite and 1 has a private bathroom with roll top bath.  All rooms have luxurious beds and bedding to guarantee a great nights sleep. Rooms are equipped with flat screen TV’s, tea and coffee making facilities & organic toiletries. We have free on-site car parking and free wi-fi internet access. We love food. We provide a lavish breakfast for all guests and can happily provide lunch and dinner by arrangement or cater for large groups. Our food is home-made and we bake our own sourdough bread daily. We believe in using local, seasonal ingredients and showcasing local artisan producers as much as we can. The Coach House is run by Lexi and Sean Morris. Lexi has been studying a degree in wine science in New Zealand, so she knows a thing or two about grapes. You can be sure that our wine list will give you plenty of reason to smile. Sean is a keen photographer and cook. Inspired by his grandmothers cooking from an early age, he looks to comfort you with rustic, home cooked food. We both look forward to welcoming you to our home & business and will do everything we can to make your stay with us as enjoyable as possible. ... more   less
