The Duke of York is a great name for a British pub, but it’s also a popular year-round campground in Buxton, Derbyshire, England. The campground lies within the scenic Derbyshire Dales and is located inside the Peak District National Park. The Duke of York sits next to the famous and historic old Roman road that runs London and Buxton.
The campground is unspoiled and basic. It blends in perfectly with the natural beauty of the rest of the Peak District and offers some fantastic panoramic views above the Dales. The Duke of York is ideal for tent, motorhome, and caravan camping. It also has toilet and shower facilities as well as fresh water, a laundry area and electrical hook ups. There’s also a child’s playground and dogs are allowed.
If you’d like to take a hike and explore the surrounding countryside there are several trails that start at the Duke of York campground and lead to the Tissington Trail, the High Peak Trail, the Midshires Way, and the Limestone Way. These are ideal for walking, jogging, and cycling.
There’s also a restaurant on site that used to be a farmstead and was turned into an ale house in 1618. The oldest section of the building dates back to the 14th century. The building comes with a restaurant and lounge and you can also get bar snacks and a variety of coffees and teas.
