Nestling in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of the Shropshire Hills, the mid-19th Century farmhouse of Upper Norton offers southerly views over glorious farmland towards the Clee Hills and Corvedale, and provides an ideal base from which to explore the uplands, valleys and forests of the Marches. Here, original farm buildings have been skillfully converted into comfortable, peaceful holiday homes.
Nearby Ludlow – described by John Betjeman as “the loveliest town in England” – is widely regarded as the UK's 'food capital' and, despite its diminutive size, has had more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other town in the country. Other local attractions include the fine medieval market town of Shrewsbury; Bridgnorth, home of the Severn Valley Railway; and Much Wenlock, inspiration for the modern Olympic movement.

Enjoy a day on the water
There are 46 miles of canals in the county, and we highly recommend heading north and hiring a narrow boat for the day. It's a wonderful and relaxing way to see the Shropshire countryside.
There are lots of different routes you can take – you could travel down the Shropshire Union Canal and go through Tyrley Locks to Market Drayton, or cruise the Llangollen Canal and visit Whitchurch and Ellesmere, or discover a route of your own!
Explore Shropshire on foot
Many guests at Upper Norton adore the access the property provides to the many walking routes available in Shropshire. In fact, there are more than 3,500 miles of public rights of way in the county, and there are routes to suit walkers of all abilities.
You could take routes once walked by famous writers, or come across lonely castles and hill forts. To keep the kids entertained, give Geocaching a try; it's a modern-day treasure hunt of sorts, which will have you go looking for hidden caches all over the world. There's bound to be a fair few treasures to find on these walks!
