Best-kept-VillageBarlaston’s ongoing bid to secure the title of Best Kept Village was recently given a boost thanks to two new wooden planters, which were donated to the village courtesy of David Wilson Homes.

Led by a group of committed volunteers, the Best Kept Village campaign sees local residents work closely together to ensure that it continually offers a welcoming environment for both citizens and visitors alike. The wooden planters are the latest step in helping to further enhance its appeal and have taken pride of place in the centre of the village.

Neil Hemmings, Clerk at Barlaston Parish Council, comments:

“I would like to thank David Wilson Homes for their generous donation. All of our volunteers work incredibly hard in ensuring that Barlaston is a safe and friendly place for all, and it is lovely to receive the planters in recognition of this. We encourage anyone who is interested in volunteering to get in touch with the Parish Council now.”


Nicky Phillips, Marketing Manager for David Wilson Homes, comments:

“Barlaston is a wonderful village, with a fantastic community spirit, which is why we are delighted to offer our support. We look forward to continuing to work with the Barlaston community in ensuring the village is recognised for the hospitable place that it is.”


Example-of-Whitmore-home-at-Wedgwood-ParkDavid Wilson Homes is offering homebuyers in Staffordshire a unique opportunity to secure their dream home with the launch of Lakeside at Wedgwood Park, its exclusive new development located in the historical grounds of the Wedgwood Estate near Barlaston.

Launching on the 27th September, Wedgwood Park is surrounded by stunning parkland, yet just minutes from junction 15 of the M6, and is ideal for home hunters seeking a totally bespoke ‘best of both worlds’ living experience.

Built on the landmark Wedgwood Estate, within walking distance of the picturesque village of Barlaston and nestled in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside, this impressive new development offers a range of bespoke homes carefully-designed to complement the vernacular and history of their surroundings.

Lake-at-Wedgwood-ParkOnce complete, Wedgwood Park will be split into three distinct character areas: Lakeside, The Oaks and The Village. Located in a prominent position at the entrance of the Wedgwood Estate and opposite the village cricket pitch, Lakeside is the first collection of homes to launch and will offer a range of four and five bedroom homes overlooking Barlaston Hall and enjoying fantastic views of the willow tree-lined lake. The Village will offer something for everyone with two bedroom townhouses through to five bedroom semi-detached homes, and has been designed to resemble the best of Staffordshire village living. Finally, The Oaks will offer a select number of five bedroom detached homes surrounded by mature trees and backing onto open parkland.

Nicky Phillips, Marketing Manager for David Wilson Homes, comments:

“Wedgwood Park offers a unique living experience which is second to none. We have been able to design a collection of luxurious homes, all situated in a truly incredible location.

“It’s very rare to find such stunning properties located so close to commuter routes that also offer the luxury and space homebuyers aspire to, so we anticipate a lot of interest in the development. We encourage anyone who would like to find out more to register their interest now. ”
