We warmly welcome you to The Royal Oak, a charming country pub and the perfect base for exploring the delights of the southern Peak District.

The Royal Oak's open fires and hidden corners are a welcoming sight for all tired walkers craving a well earned pint, families on a day out in search of a friendly haven or 'Foodies' after some great homemade dishes. Proper food, generous portions and sensible prices are what make The Royal Oak so special.

We take great pride in offering a very traditional style of hospitality complete with cosy pub atmosphere, good company, cask-conditioned ales, a fine selection of wines and a menu of hearty English pub food. Open every day from 12 noon until 9pm means you can sit back and enjoy the unique atmosphere at 'The Oak' anytime.

For those who'd like to linger longer, the choice of camping accommodation is available.

The Royal Oak camping grounds are situated to the rear of the pub. The picturesque campsite has 20 pitches on two levels with direct access to the Tissington and High Peak Trail. Access to the camping field is via a standard five-bar gate. The campsite has a unisex toilet and shower block with inside and outside washing up facilities - please note there is no electric hook up or hard core standing.

Please note we do not allow motorhomes we only accept small camper-vans. Nothing larger than a VW camper will be admitted on to the site as we cannot guarantee access due to weather conditions. On bank holiday weekends we do have a minimum stay of 3 nights.

We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed a meal at the pub on one of them. The winter facilites are basic but warm, the pyb food is very good the staff are all very friendly. It is a shame they don't have any walks to recommend. The wifi is good and stretched outside (thought not all the way to the campsite, but that's fine). WE had a good ifre pit. Spent ,ovely days in Buxton and Bakewell and really liked the Thornbridge brewery and pizza!

A well maintained site in a great location. Very helpful staff. Outdoor wifi! It’s what you’d expect outdoor wifi to be like, but they have it at least. The food and beer in the pub were fantastic highly recommend. Definitely stay again some time.

Our First Night Away In Our VW CamperVan

Hewitt, Steve - 18/10/2023

As complete Van Life Newbie’s we enjoyed our first ever night away at The Royal Oak Pub in Hurdlow near Buxton in The Peak District which is a beautiful spot. The pub itself is a really cosy Inn with a roaring fire and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Importantly the pub offer food 7 days a week and they have a campsite to the rear with 24/7 showers and toilets. We upgraded to a larger Super Pitch with Picnic Table and Fire Pit which was a lovely private quiet corner plot with dry stone wall boundary and stunning views of the National Park. After setting up we then enjoyed a dog walk along the adjacent trail towards Parsley Hay which cuts through amazing rolling countryside. We headed back to the pub to savour their signature dish the Beef & Stilton Pie which was absolutely amazing. We couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our first trip so much so we have already booked to go back again! Steve & Rachel Hewitt, Boo the Cockerpoo 🐶 and “Betty” our new VW CamperVan 🚐
