Adjoining the owners' home in the pretty village of Norbury, this semi-detached, Grade II listed cottage can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Sun Cottage is a semi-detached, Grade II listed cottage in the village of Norbury, near Bishop's Castle in Shropshire. The property has two bedrooms on the first floor, including a king-size double and a twin, which can be made into a super king-size double on request. There is a bathroom, a kitchen with a dining area and an open fire, as well as a sitting room with a woodburner.

Outside, there is a private, front garden with furniture and a barbecue, while a very short walk away, you can enjoy dinner in the owners' restaurant. There is also parking for one car and, set amidst beautiful, Shropshire countryside, Sun Cottage is a great base for exploring The Long Mynd, The Shropshire Way, Stiperstones and the Offa's Dyke Path.


Comfortable beautifully appointed cottage in rural location
This lovely cottage in the village of Norbury is charming, secluded and a very comfortable base for us and our two children (5 and 8). The wood burner is lovely on a chilly evening and the kitchen well appointed and comfortable. The garden area is to the front of the house but the road is very quiet. Bedrooms are very comfortable and the owners supply the bathroom with lovely Scottish hand made toiletries, a r and al luxury. We enjoyed a lovely walk at the Long Mynd and visiting quirky shops in Bishops Castle. Lunch at Restaurant Severn in Ironbridge was an absolute treat and excellent value. Biking essential however as the restaurant is small. We also enjoyed RAF Gosford on the way home although agreed with reviews that you need hours there. My only reservation with sun cottage would be for anyone with very young children or those finding stairs difficult as the stairs are very steep. Also the local Inn also run by the owners has a fine dining restaurant that many trip advisor rivers have enjoyed. For us with young kids it was very expensive for quite small portions - after a day in the fresh shropshire air we would have been better off having a hearty bar meal elsewhere. The food was however very tasty and well cooked.

Fantastic cottage in a wonderful area with lots to see and many places to visit.
Mrs Critchley

Sun Cottage was cosy and comfortable and the garden was ideal for our dog. We loved the wood burning stove, especially as the evenings were chilly outside. The cottage is ideally situated for visiting so many lovely places. We plan on returning.
Miss Dieckfoss

A very peaceful location, a comfortable, well-equipped character cottage ideal for relaxing and within easy distance of many places of interest. Highly recommended.
Mrs Rivers

The standard of our accommodation was first class, nothing was too much trouble. Cannot fault anything about the property or the lovely welcoming landlords. It was all way beyond our expectations.
