The Royal Oak: The cosy pub, where you can enjoy food and drinks throughout your stay

General

  • Family-friendly pub site in the southern Peak District
  • A 15-minute drive to Bakewell or Buxton; 20 minutes to Ashbourne
  • Friendly pub with open fire; large beer garden and outdoor seating

'Large beer garden' – surely one of the most enticing phrases language has to offer? If you're nodding your head vigorously by this point, take a closer look at this popular pub site in the southern Peak District, where it's a toss-up between energetic cross-country treks and laidback times back at base.

The Royal Oak is in Hurdlow, a hamlet just off the A515 and five minutes' drive from the village of Monyash. This family-friendly Derbyshire spot is sandwiched between the lush limestone valleys of Dovedale (20 minutes' drive) and the market towns of Buxton and Bakewell (both 15 minutes). It's also a few steps from the Tissington Trail and High Peak Trail, which run along a shared car-free path that splits into two routes a couple of miles to the south at Parsley Hay bike hire centre (five minutes).

It sure is handy pitching up right by a pub, especially when that pub has a kids' menu and welcomes dogs. The Royal Oak serves up lunches and dinners seven days a week, with chef-cooked breakfasts to tempt you out from under the covers at weekends. (Book ahead if dining here, as tables are rightly in high demand.) With open fires for chillier days and that ample outdoor space for when the weather is fine, fully expect to be spending quite some time in these mellow surrounds…

  • Liked: 

    Lovely location and friendly staff. The facilities where very clean and every thing needed.

    the pitches are very flat and in lovely green quite spot right on the edge of the Tissington and High Peak Trail.

    Disliked: 

    The pitches are all grass which meant we felt it was unwise to take a campavan onto them BUT the staff where very helpful and we parked in the carpark which was also quiet with great views

Local attractions

People have lived in the Peaks for a very long time indeed, as you'll see for yourself at Arbor Low (10 minutes' drive), a prehistoric henge and Neolithic barrow on the White Peak plateau. After inspecting these ancient ruins, fast-forward a few dozen centuries and zip off to Haddon Hall (30 minutes) for a jaunt around an Elizabethan house and gardens.

Next up, trips into town are in order. The town in question is very much up to you, and there's a fair bit of choice around here – options include sauntering around Buxton (15 minutes) and its Georgian terraces, heading to a showground event or sampling the puddings in Bakewell (15 minutes) and visiting Ashbourne (20 minutes), a market town full of varied independent shops.

Kids (and adults, for that matter) who are fans of fluffy animals can take a trip to Mayfield Alpacas Animal Park (35 minutes), while those who prefer more urban explores can be taken to Sheffield (45 minutes), where bowling, indoor climbing or a visit to the National Videogame Museum should do the trick.

Must see

  • Haddon Hall (6.3 miles)
  • Chatsworth (8.3 miles)
  • Sir Richard Arkwright's Masson Mills (11.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Winster Market House (7.9 miles)
  • The Old Manor (14.8 miles)
