New Homes in Staffordshire
Kids of all ages – and plenty of adults too – will love Alton Towers with its record-breaking rollercoasters and wonderful rides, while the majestic Peak District resides partly in the north of the county, for a slightly more relaxed pace of fun. Visit Trentham Monkey Forest and Rudyard Lake when you find a home at our developments in Staffordshire, which you can see below.
Living in Staffordshire
Whether you’re drawn to towns and villages surrounded by open countryside, or you want to live somewhere with great access to one of the West Midlands’ major cities, living in Staffordshire provides plenty of variety. All of us have one thing in common though, in that we don’t want to spend any more than we have to when moving home. So don’t miss offers such as our Movemaker scheme, where we could help with the sale of your existing home and take care of your estate agent fees for you.
Things to see and do in Staffordshire
Staffordshire is packed with great attractions to keep you occupied, including everything from interesting museums to historic castles and cathedrals. The National Brewery Centre is a must if you like your ales, while Cannock Chase Forest is the perfect spot for relaxing walks. You can also spend time outdoors in places like Branston Water Park, Chasewater Country Park and the Dimmingsdale Valley.
If you live in the north of the county, you’ll get the best access to the breathtaking Peak District, as well as Stoke’s city centre. The rides and rollercoasters of Alton Towers are also in the north, while Drayton Manor Theme Park is in the south east. Trentham Monkey Forest, meanwhile, gives you the chance to see more than 100 Barbary macaques who are free to roam just like they are in the wild.
There are plenty of great schools across Staffordshire for your kids to attend, including the outstanding Thomas Russell Junior School in Burton. St Mary’s Catholic Primary and Parkside Primary are good options in Stafford, while Thursfield Primary is a strong choice if you live in Stoke.
Staffordshire’s biggest city is also home to the outstanding Painsley Catholic College, while Burton’s John Taylor High School is another secondary school in the education board’s highest band. Lichfield’s King Edward VI School and Wolgarston High School in Stafford are strong choices if you live in those areas.
Transport links in Staffordshire
Transport links across the county include a wide selection of bus and rail routes, which are particularly strong in and around Stoke, as well as in the south near Birmingham. The county council advocates environmentally friendly travel where possible, but if you have a car you can use the M6 motorway to head south to Birmingham or north all the way to Carlisle.
The Staffordshire property market
Staffordshire’s property prices have grown faster than the UK average in recent years, showing this is a good place to invest in a new home. You can do just that in places like Hednesford in Cannock, where luxury 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes along Pye Green Road are ideal for families and people who work either in Cannock, Wolverhampton, Walsall or Birmingham.
Perhaps you’d rather be just a 15-minute walk from Uttoxeter’s charming town centre along Sorrel Close, or in the Barlaston area of Stoke-on-Trent. Wherever you see yourself living, don’t miss the extra support on offer through schemes such as the Government’s popular Help to Buy initiative.
Help to Buy Staffordshire
In Staffordshire you can take advantage of Help to Buy West Midlands of England if you are a first time buyer. Take a look at the Help to Buy West Midlands page to find out how the scheme works and how it can help you move.
