Welcome to The Upper House

Address: The Green, Stone, ST12 9AE

Hotel Description

In a peaceful, rural location, this country house was originally built in 1845. Today, the house has been converted into a luxurious privately owned hotel with many beautiful original features. The Upper House is a former Wedgwood residence, built for Josiah Wedgwood's grandson, Francis Wedgwood. The house still retains its original charm, with extensive period decoration and traditional character. There are 24 en suite rooms, all with TVs, telephones, tea/coffee making facilities and hairdryers. Some of the rooms have balconies and although there is no smoking in the house, smoking is permitted on the balconies. Free Wi-Fi wireless internet access is available throughout the hotel. A full English breakfast is included in the price. There are 2 comfortable lounges and in the chillier winter months, guests can relax by the real log fire. There is also a patio area and a conservatory at the rear of the hotel, both overlooking the beautiful gardens. A lift serves all floors. The Upper House has a quiet, restful location, but is just a few miles south of Stoke-on-Trent, within easy reach of the A50, the M6 motorway and the region’s major road network. Free on-site parking is available for guests.

Barlaston Golf Club - Stone - Golf

Barlaston Golf Club - Stone - Golf

Distance 1.47 miles (2.35 km)
Barlaston golf Club nestles alongside the River Trent just south of Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire. It is about 1 hour drive from Birmingham or Manchester. Designed by Peter Alliss in 1977, Barlaston Golf Course is described as a little beauty. Many societies from the West Midlands, Liverpool and Manchester have already discovered Barlaston when looking for a break. The course, a par 68 over 5,800 yards long, never plays the same on morning and afternoon rounds, so don't expect an easy day. Take a look at some of the Super Challenges that face you in the rolling meadow land at Barlaston.

Stoke City Football Club - Football Club

Stoke City Football Club - Football Club

Distance 3.45 miles (5.52 km)
The stadium opened in 1997, looks imposing from afar, as it is perched on a hill with hardly any buildings around it. It looks good when lit up at night. A vast improvement on the old Victoria Ground which has now sadly been demolished. It is a fair sized stadium comprising three separate stands, one of which extends half way around the ground. I'm a great fan of grounds which are totally enclosed, so it is a shame that this new ground has three open corners. Internally, I found the stadium a bit lacking in character, however I'm sure this will develop in time. In one corner of the ground next to the away end is a large electric scoreboard.
