Stone offers a range of local shops and restaurants, with a regular Farmers Market, and various events taking place such as The Stone Festival in June and Stone Food and Drinks Festival in October. The Trentham Garden Estate is approximately 3.4 miles away and offers delightful walks, boat trips, and plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from, along with an extensive diary of events, whilst Trentham Golf Club which is an Open Championship Qualifying course and one of the finest in Staffordshire is also close by.
