Benefits of Cobblestone Paving
Cobblestones have been around since the 15th century, and a material like this doesn’t stick around for so long for no reason…
Our Cobble Setts are extremely durable. Regular cobblestones have been used to make roads for centuries, and they’re still standing today which tells you all you need to know! Our cobblestone pavers are incredibly strong, allowing them to withstand heavy loads including cars. This makes them ideal for high-traffic areas throughout your property’s exterior. Plus, you can rest easy knowing that they’ll last you for years and years to come.
One of the biggest selling points for Cobble Setts is their minimal maintenance requirements. While they can be more challenging to lay than traditional pavers, they require far less upkeep. Cobblestone pavers are essentially a one-and-done solution; as long as the base remains intact you won’t need to worry about regular cleaning and weeding etc. A quick brush every now and then won’t hurt, but apart from that you’re good to go!
One of the biggest benefits of incorporating cobblestones into your landscape is its distinctive look. Cobble Setts are a perfect way to add charm to your property and create a look that is truly unique to your home.
They also look great when combined with other paving materials, such as porcelain pavers, or natural sandstone slabs. They’re ideal for creating contrast, and particularly useful for areas where traditional stones are too large or difficult. Many use them to create stylish borders and unique designs – and they’re great for driveway aprons to add to your home’s curb appeal!

Are cobblestone driveways slippery?
Despite popular opinion, cobblestones are a highly slip-resistant material. They’re ideal for driveways and walkways, even in adverse conditions, thanks to their rough texture and naturally slip-resistant surface.
Can you use cobblestones for driveways?
Cobblestones and Cobble Setts are ideal for driveways and high-traffic areas thanks to their naturally occurring stability and strength! This means they won’t break or crack under the weight of cars. Plus, they’re extremely long-lasting and require little to no maintenance, making them the perfect material for a beautiful and functional driveway.
Do you need to seal cobblestones?
While it wouldn’t hurt to do so, it’s not essential to seal your cobblestones. They’re a natural stone that won’t be affected by the weather; however, they are susceptible to stains which is something that sealing would prevent from occurring.
What’s the difference between cobbles and setts?
The main difference between cobbles and setts is the shape: cobbles are round, whereas setts are square/rectangular. They are both incredibly similar and both are used in the construction of roads, paths, driveways, patios, etc.
