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.

Large pitches, friendly efficient staff

Hard to fault, the pitches are generous, the staff incredibly helpful & friendly, location is spot on for some classic Peak District dales walking, the pub serves great food. Everything was excellent for our 4 nights .. even the rain didn’t put a spoiler on things. Will definitely be going back.

Little campsite with space for the kids to play freely. Not busy so no dangers. Very relaxed, next to plenty of trails and nice walks. The Royal Oak food was amazing!! The toilets and showers were clean and tidy, they even had a sink for you to wash pots. Very pleasant experience for our first time camping. also only a short drive away from bakewell!

Short Camp

Rimmington, Stephen - 20/05/2024

The location is as good as it gets; the rural Peak District, without being miles away from civilisation, so easy access to the 'Trails', Buxton, Ashbourne etc.Good size pitches, that do deliver the rural nature of camping, yet with discreet and well appointed facilities.The big USP of the site is of course the Royal Oak pub. Great beer and food with that 'Country pub' vibe that seems to be getting harder to find. They even have a huge dome tent in the garden so if Mother Nature unleashes her worst at stupid o'clock, and your tent fails, at least there's somewhere to go!!

Amazing camp site!

Harriman, Charlotte - 16/05/2024

This camp site is definitely up there with one of our favourties! We had glorious weather which always helps, however the camp site itself was in a great location and all the pitches were clearly marked out - we were also able to park next to the pitch which is always a bonus. The facilities such as the toilets and showers were very clean and you didn't have to pay to use the showers. The Royal Oak pub was a lovely country pub serving great food, always a big positive having a pub that closeby! The staff came around each morning and evening to check everything was okay with our stay and we found them very attentive and bubbly. We also went to their sister pub across the field and had a lovely meal there.We will definitely be returning as soon as we can :)
