Our village of Onecote is not just in the Peak District National Park but at the heart of a very special part of the Peaks known as the South West Peak – an area of stunning natural beauty, tranquility and heritage.
The 17th century Lane Head Farm is one of the oldest properties in the farming community of Onecote. Peace, tranquility and beautiful landscapes provide the perfect escape from everyday life when you stay at Lane Head in our newly converted luxury barn – Morridge View. Our second barn conversion, Mixon View, is work in progress – watch this space.
Onecote (pronounced on-cut) is a small friendly village that lies within the Staffordshire Moorlands area of the Peak District National Park.
The village has an active church (St. Luke’s), excellent pub / restaurant (The Jervis Arms), and busy village hall where events take place regularly. The village is just 5 miles from the traditional market town of Leek and a short drive from Peak District highlights such as Dovedale, Bakewell, Hartington and the Manifold Valley.
Onecote has always been a farming community and remains so today with many active dairy and sheep farms in and around the village. Lane Head Farm itself comprised around 140 acres in the 19th century but land has gradually been sold to neighbouring farms so that now it is a small holding with just a few acres. We breed sheep as do our neighbours so fields will be full of ewes and lambs if you are with us in the spring and summer. In 2019 our lambs are due during March.
