Holiday Accommodation Plan For Historic Leek Town Pub

Plans have been put forward to turn part of a well-known pub into holiday accommodation.

The Quiet Woman is based in a Grade II-listed building in St Edward Street, Leek.

Now an application has been submitted to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council to change part of the building from a public house into accommodation for holidaymakers.

Ian Ankers Architecture Ltd, on behalf of owners Woodcocks & Leather Partnership, has produced a design statement outlining the vision.

The document states: “Occupying a prime position on a busy mixed-use street, the building works in conjunction with its neighbours to provide an attractive and unique gateway for visitors arriving into the town centre from the south and east.

“Over the last five to six years, the public house has been owned ot/managed by several independent landlords who have failed to create a viable business from the premises.

“The building owners, Woodcocks & Leather Partnership, are seeking change of use for the rear outbuildings to form an additional two self-contained holiday apartments, centred around the existing courtyard.”
