Life-changing supported living at the heart of the community.

Valued in your community
Ivy Cottage is situated in a quiet rural area just outside Stoke. The local villages of Longton and Blythe Bridge offer a choice of supermarkets, shops, pubs and takeaways, as well as banks, post offices and libraries. There are great leisure activities locally including bowling and a cinema. It’s ideally placed for accessing the wider area – the nearby bus stop takes you to Longton and Hanley, while the train station (about 10 minutes away by car) offers routes to Stoke, Manchester, Derby and beyond. For people who like to stay active, there are gyms and leisure centres, and Waterworld is only a few miles away. This service is right on the edge of the Peak District which offers superb scenery and walking trails.
