Lying alongside the River Trent, and just yards from the Trent and Mersey Canal with its colourful leisure craft, The Willows is a prestigious collection of new homes of exceptional distinction. Attractively landscaped around a tree-lined community space, the development combines the appeal of its rural ambience with a surprisingly convenient location just fifteen minutes drive from Stafford or Stoke-on-Trent.
Once the capital of the kingdom of Mercia, today Stone is a picturesque market town with a lively and welcoming community.
Stone straddles the Trent and Mersey Canal, now the focal point for a wide range of leisure activities. Narrowboats are available for hire, allowing you to explore much of the surrounding area at a leisurely pace, while the towpaths and the countryside around the town offer great scope for walking and cycling. The many visitor attractions in easy reach include the Wedgwood Visitor Centre, Trentham Gardens and the fascinating Shugborough Hall where the life of a historic country estate has been recreated. The recently revamped Alleyne’s Sports Centre, less than a mile from the development, includes a floodlit synthetic pitch, a range of grass pitches, tennis courts, a 25m swimming pool, squash courts and a sports hall, whilst its companion site at Westbridge Park provides gymnasium and fitness facilities. Stone Golf Club is only a few minutes’ walk away, and the town has a wide selection of popular bars and restaurants, with live music and entertainment available most nights. Stone also hosts an annual food and drink festival.
The development is within a few minutes’ walk of the town centre, where there is an excellent range of food and drink shops, supermarkets, gift and specialist outlets, clothing and fashion retailers covering all everyday needs. For a wider choice of high street names, the malls and retail parks of Stafford, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent are just a few minutes’ drive away.
The development is adjacent to the A34, bringing Stafford, Stoke-on-Trent and the M6 into easy reach. Birmingham is around 45 minutes’ drive away.
