Lovely family home for a short break. The house is only about 30metres from the canal, which provides a lovely towpath walk along the canal into the centre of Stone. Chill out time watching the canal boats at the lock gates.
The main purpose of our visit to the area was to visit Drayton Manor, Alton Towers and Monkey Forest, this property provided a good base for these. Visiting during Scarefest did mean that we had minimal time to enjoy the house as leaving Alton Towers after 9pm every night. The night that we did light the wood burner it did provide a lovely aroma in the house for a family movie night.
Stone has some lovely restaurants, we enjoyed both tapas and Italian. The main street of the village is mainly charity shops though.
Only shop on the doorstep is the local petrol station that sells essentials.
