Rather English - Stay at the Royal Oak, Hurdlow

A great little pub in the heart of the Peak District, the Royal Oak is shown on the map as being in the tiny hamlet of Sparklow, about half way between the villages of Monyash and Crowdecote near Hurdlow. The pub is renowned for its great hospitality and food, which when combined with a campsite and bunkbarn make for a winning combination.

When your author visited the rain was rather unrelenting and the weekend spent in and around the Royal Oak could easily have been a washout, but the positive attitude of those running the pub made it a great base from which to explore the Peak District - with highlights such as Lathkill Dale and Arbor Low Stone Circle within walking distance - and they managed to find room at a table despite already being quite busy.
