Best areas to live in Stoke-on-Trent

Stoke-on-Trent may be small, but there are lots of desirable areas to live, at really affordable prices.


A large market town 2.5 miles west of central Stoke-on-Trent, property prices in this green belt area of Staffordshire average at an affordable £175,269. Boasting lots of green spaces, a traditional market open six days a week, and a school, a sixth-form college and proximity to Keele University, Newcastle-under-Lyme tends to be popular with families and students, as well as those commuting to Stoke-on-Trent for work.


Average property prices in this affordable Staffordshire town sit at £140,948, making it one of the lowest-cost areas of Stoke-on-Trent in which to set up home. Longton is 3.3 miles east of central Stoke-on-Trent, and it is serviced by the Longton train station and the A50, making it ideal for commuters. A bustling area packed with amenities, including shops, cafes and restaurants, not to mention the Gladstone Pottery Museum, Longton is a great place to live.


Located 8.2 miles west of Stoke-on-Trent city centre, Madeley is a historic and picturesque village known for its period properties and historic buildings, including the Madeley Mill and Pool. House prices in Madeley average at £248,111, and its train station and transport links via the M6 motorway make it popular among commuters.


A quaint village situated in the Staffordshire Moorlands, just 11 miles north-east of central Stoke-on-Trent, average house prices in Cheddleton stand at around £266,711. Cheddleton is a quiet rural area that appeals to retirees and families, with only a handful of local amenities, including The Black Lion pub, a tearoom and a secondary school, but plenty of green space to keep residents happy. The village sits on the banks of the River Churnet, and is overlooked by the historic Cheddleton Flint Mill.


With property prices averaging at £198,572, Biddulph is one of the more affordable towns on the fringes of Stoke-on-Trent, from which it sits 11 miles to the north. Biddulph’s train station connects commuter residents easily to nearby towns such as Congleton and Kidsgrove, as well as to Stoke-on-Trent city centre, but the real pull of Biddulph is its historic sights and natural beauty spots. As well as the Mow Copy Castle, the town boasts Biddulph Grange and landscaped gardens, an Iron Age fort, and several ancient burial mounds.

Being situated in the centre of the country has many benefits: there are lots of places to explore nearby on your weekends and days off.

Ride the rollercoasters at Alton Towers

One of the UK’s most popular attractions for thrill seekers, Alton Towers is just 10 miles west of Stoke-on-Trent, and is easily accessible via the A50. Bursting with world famous rollercoasters like Oblivion, plus some family-friendly rides like the Peter Rabbit Hippity Hop for kids and families, Alton Towers has something for everyone to enjoy. You could even make a weekend of it, and stay in a stargazing pod, a luxury treehouse or the Alton Towers hotel.

Visit the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery

No day out in Stoke-on-Trent would be complete without a trip to the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Hanley, just two miles from central Stoke. Permanent exhibitions of archaeological, social history and ceramic artefacts allow the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery to tell the story of Stoke-on-Trent’s pottery production heritage, and a gallery, gift shop and cosy café make this attraction a full-day experience.

Walk through Trentham Estate and Gardens

Trentham Gardens offers something for nature lovers of every kind. While youngsters will enjoy the fairy trail and adventure playground, transport buffs can take a ride on Trentham’s miniature train or the lake’s electronically powered boat. Walkers are catered for with walled gardens, a floral labyrinth and the historic remains of Trentham Hall, and those with a passion for wildlife can try their hand at bird spotting and deer watching.

Go wild at Trentham Monkey Forest

If you’re looking for a family-friendly day out that won’t break the bank, Trentham Monkey Forest is the place to go. Unlike at a zoo, the beauty of Trentham Monkey Forest is that there are no cages; visitors can watch the monkeys roam the forest freely, and can learn about the animals via helpful guides and feeding talks. A hidden trail, meadow walk and adventure play areas make for extra entertainment, while an information centre ensures your experience will be both fun and educational. Make sure to grab a souvenir at the Forest’s Jungle Shop, and have a bite to eat at the Banana Café, or pack a lunch and hit the picnic areas.

Take a dip at Waterworld Aqua Park

Located in Festival Park, just under three miles from central Stoke-on-Trent, Waterworld Aqua Park has gallons of fun to offer. With an array of water slides, including the Cyclone and the Stormchaser, plus rapids and adult assault courses, the water park is one of the best in the UK, and even comes complete with a wave pool, toddler slides, interactive pools, bubble pools and an outdoor pool. If swimming isn’t your thing, however, there’s no need to worry, because Waterworld also boasts an adventure mini golf course, a spa, and a purpose-built gym.
