Milford was described as a "pleasant hamlet" by the 1851 History, Gazetteer and Directory of Staffordshire. There is no church, the church at Walton-on-the-Hill being less than a mile away.
Milford Common (SJ973211) is a popular recreation spot for local people, and has traditionally been the site of travelling fairs. The entrance to the National Trust Shugborough estate faces the common. Shugborough houses the county's official museum.
Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is nearby. Its borders extend to about a mile south of the village, and the extensive Chase area offers a variety of outdoor activities including several leisure cycling routes.
The nearest railway station is in the town of Stafford, about four miles from Milford. Stafford station currently serves most inter-city services running on the West Coast Main Line Birmingham-Manchester route, as well as offering local services.
Road access is by way of the A513 road. Milford is accessible by canal narrowboat, along the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. There is a cycle path along the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal towpath, leading to the National Cycle Network National Route 5 that currently ends at Walton-on-the-Hill, but will be extended southwards to Birmingham.
Nearby Shugborough Hall was the home of the photographer Lord Lichfield.
