Welcome to The Shady Oak, a country inn situated on the A5004 between the Peak District towns of Buxton and Whaley Bridge. Stunning views over the Goyt Valley and the plethora of walking trails that exist in the surrounding area make the Shady Oak a magnet for walkers, outdoor pursuit-ists and  people who just enjoy the countryside.


A warm welcome from Sue and Craig at the Shady Oak


Whether you're staying in our recently refurbished rooms, having a meal or you've just dropped in for a snack or a pint we'll do our very best to look after you.

There is a large car park and a room in the bar just for dogs (and their owners) and you are welcome to tap into our wireless internet.

We take great pride in our food and the comfort and cleanliness of the inn, and that's behind the scenes as well as in front of house.

Smokers are well catered for in a covered and heated area at the rear of the inn, well away from eating areas and food.
