Epic Housing > Find a home > About Bentilee/Stoke

Bentilee is located between the towns of Hanley (Stoke-on-Trent’s City Centre) and Longton.  The area was originally built based on designs for “Garden Cities” such as Welwyn Garden City and so open space and greenery is a feature of the area.  Bentilee is also next to Parkhall Country Park, which is Stoke-on-Trent’s only National Nature Reserve and also a site of Special Scientific Interest.


Bentilee is well served by bus services 11/11A and 12 that run between Hanley and Longton and are operated by First.  There is also a new service linking Bentilee to Lymedale Business Park in Newcastle, where a number of large distribution companies are based.  For more information please visit First’s website.
