Surrounded by agricultural land, Hoar Cross is in a notably affluent part of the East Staffordshire borough, nestled in the hills of the ancient Needwood Forest (now part of the National Forest). The Anglican parish church of Hoar Cross is Holy Angels' Church, in the Diocese of Lichfield. It was built by the pious Anglo-Catholic, Emily Charlotte Meynall-Ingram (sister of Charles Wood, 2nd Viscount Halifax) as a memorial to her late husband Hugo Francis Meynell Ingram. The church - an extremely elaborate edifice - was designed by George Frederick Bodley and Thomas Garner. One of its more famous features is a highly elaborate set of Stations of the Cross.
19th century mansion Hoar Cross Hall, which is a hotel and health spa, is situated 1⁄2-mile (0.80 km) to the west of Hoar Cross village.
