Epic Housing > Find a home > About Bentilee/Stoke

Bentilee is located between the towns of Hanley (the City Centre of Stoke-on-Trent) and Longton. The area was originally built based on designs for 'Garden Cities' (such as Welwyn Garden City) 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, 12 and 12A which run between Hanley and Longton and are operated by First Potteries. Service 4 links Hanley with Lymedale Business Park in Newcastle, where a number of distribution companies are based. For more information visit the First Potteries website
