The town has a good sports centre, many clubs and societies catering for a wide variety of interests and two 18 hole golf courses within 3 miles.

DESCRIPTION This Victorian villa, described in the Sales Catelogue of the Werrington Estate in 1871 as a "substantially built dwellinghouse, stone built, slated, containing three sitting rooms, kitchen, back kitchen and five bedrooms", has been occupied by well known names and in 1963 was occupied by the Borough Surveyor and later by Mr Greenaway, the owner of the garage opposite. The property's current accommodation comprises: entrance hall with sitting rooms either side, leading on to a substantial inner hallway with a turning staircase rising to the first floor. A further inner hallway provides access onto a study and downstairs cloakroom. Leading off the hall is a sitting/dining room and in turn a kitchen/breakfast room, which has direct access onto the garden and access to a porch which has a utility/cloakroom leading off. On the first floor, there is a substantial landing leading onto a double aspect sitting room with views up to the castle. There are four bedrooms, a shower room and a bathroom. The property benefits from oil fired central heating to radiators and uPVC double-glazed windows, with the exception of the original landing window. Outside, there is a courtyard style rear garden with decked area including a pergola covered seating area. This has pedestrian access on to a hardstanding area with parking for three vehicles, which is enclosed by wooden fencing with access over the neighbouring car yard onto the adjoining lane. To the front of the property is a small courtyard with railings and an unusual bench with the house name carved on it.
