Work Has Begun to Bring 16 New Homes to Rent in Werrington, Staffordshire

To add to our expanding Simple Life properties and community, we are excited to announce that work has started to deliver 16 new homes exclusively to rent in Werrington, Staffordshire.


Located five miles east of Stoke-on-Trent, discover a range of two and three bedroom homes, all with high specification including fully integrated kitchen appliances. With a goal to make a real different in the UK rental market, we strive to deliver quality and attainable homes to young professionals, families and early retirees; whilst contributing to the wider community. With thousands of homes already built in the UK, we are extremely happy to announce our third (alongside Stanley Park and Dracan Village at Drakelow Park) development in the Staffordshire region.

Ash Bank Heights will benefit from a large flood attenuation area on the south side, providing sweeping views of the countryside beyond, a children’s play area and a patchwork of green spaces. Additionally, a large parcel of land has been set aside as an ecological zone for native flora and fauna.

Offsite, road safety and sustainable transport improvements will be made on the Ash Bank Road, including a new pedestrian crossing and bus stop improvements.

As well as new homes, the local community will benefit from a £192,553 contribution comprising:

  • £139,128 for local sports pitches
  • £46,425 towards community health care
  • £7,000 to encourage more sustainable modes of transport through the local travel plan.


Alec Maullin, Project Manager, Simple Life Homes commented: “We’re delighted to be working with Countryside to deliver more, much needed, new homes to local communities. Our Simple Life build to rent homes come with a fully fitted appliances, a professional landlord service and they’re pet friendly! We’ve seen very high demand for all existing Simple Life sites within Stoke over the last few years, so we’re really pleased to be developing more homes in this area with our partners.”

Ash Bank Heights is due to launch Autumn 2023.
