Lane Head Farm is a scenic little wild campsite within a young woodland in the Staffordshire moorland. We offer basic facilities including a composting toilet located within the woods and a flushing toilet available down at the farm.
There is off-road car parking either in the woods or down in the farmyard.
Our pitches are set in quiet woodland and are perfect for small parties up to four people.
Open from 1 May to 1 Oct
Within 30 minutes' drive are the beautiful stately homes of Chatsworth House and Harwick Hall.
The local area is full of small market towns, perfect for a bit of sightseeing. Try the riverfron at Bakewell, or a day out in Ashbourne. You can also easily reach Leek and its steam train, Castleton and much more.

From Buxton or Leek
Take the A53 and half way between Leek and Buxton you will see the Winking Man Pub. Take the turn on the south side of the pub which is signposted Newtown and Warslow. After about half a mile take the first left fork. After another half mile at the crossroads take the left turn and then after a mile you will see a phone box on your right. Turn left down the small lane which says 'Unsuitable for long vehicles'. At the mini crossroads go straight across and come down to the farmhouse.

You can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on Pitchup.com.
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches: the campsite or park will try to grant your request.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
