Wharf cottage is a lovely detached 3 bedroom property set in the peaceful Staffordshire rolling countryside. Located on the beautiful Shropshire Union Canal at Norbury Junction.

The cottage has been designed in an upside down style to make the most of the views of the canal basin and surrounding countryside. The exposed beams are a charming feature of the open-plan upstairs living accommodation and the cottage also benefits from a balcony overlooking fields.

The quiet country lanes and towpath make this cottage a great choice for cyclists and walkers respectively. Also, up to 2 dogs can stay with you and enjoy this peaceful setting (pet charge applies). Alternatively, if you prefer to simply relax and unwind then you will enjoy sitting on the wharf-side watching the boats and wildlife.
