Stone Hedge, sometimes called the Stone Hedge, is the seat of House Bracken in the riverlands. There is a village surrounding it.
Stone Hedge is located south of the Red Fork and the Inn of the Kneeling Man, north of High Heart and Acorn Hall, and east of Riverrun. Blackwood Vale, home to the Brackens' rivals from House Blackwood, is located across the Red Fork to the north.
