What are the "nicest" areas to live around Stoke on Trent?

My husband has just accepted a job in Stoke so we need to move to the area from Jersey, where we are now. I would like some advice on the best areas to look at for housing and in time schools

  • Hi, did you find a good place to move to in Stoke? Myself and my partner are also moving to Stoke. He has also been offered a job at Festival Way so we are looking to move somewere we can get transport there and back as we do not have a car. What are Hanley and Tunstall like to live? Does anyone have any suggestions of a good place to stay but one that is near to shops and transport?

  • The outskirts are very nice. areas I have lived are Seabridge/Westlands, Westbury Park, Stockton Brook/Endon. You do have other nice areas but can't say from experience. Inner city I have lived in Fenton and Hanley(forest park area) which have been ok for me. Fenton I had my shed broke into but spent 10 years without any other problems (pro's targeted good gear).like most inner city areas you have to do vast research as it can be hit and miss, eg: my house in Hanley was in a lovely cul-de-sac but the streets behind it were dodgy at night. I have not much experience of North of the city but driving around, it really doesn't appeal to me imho. That's not saying there is no decent areas up north end of city If husband travelling to work around rush hour it get's very busy out of festival park so I would recommend testing the drive home from work before buying a property.

  • I have lived in Stoke-on-Trent/Newcastle-u-lyme all of my life (forty odd years) I work in Hanley so do know this area very well. Birches Head is lovely, near to the canal, Forest Park and Northwood Park for walking, but it is also within walking distance to the town centre and Festival Park (just in case there's more snow) Good schools especially the church primary schools Hanley St Lukes and St George and St Martins. One of European's largest church congregation at Potter's House. Very friendly neighbourhood. Try also parts of Bucknall again loads of countryside nearby and easy to get into Hanley.
