You can rent an entire pub with your mates for an overnight stay

Did you know that there’s a pub in the Peak District that’s been converted into a beautiful house you can rent out with your mates for the night?

The Poachers Arms is now a top-quality country house – but thankfully, the original working bar, complete with beer taps, survived its makeover.

The beautiful spot is in the village of Hope in the Hope Valley and has space for up to 30 guests across nine ensuite bedrooms.

It’s been kitted out with fibre broadband, a modern kitchen, a huge dining area and loads of entertainment, including 14 televisions, a table football table, and a pool table.

We all know that the walk home from the pub can sometimes feel like the longest mission ever, but at least if you book out The Poachers Arms there’s only ever a flight of stairs between the bar and your bed.

The building’s owners can supply you with barrels of beer, lager and cider at cost price – and can even supply you with bartenders for an extra cost.

Outside, you could also relax around the charcoal barbecue or soak in the outdoor hot tub, while little ones run around in the secure children’s play area or play table tennis.

As this is the Peak District, one of the world’s best beauty spots that’s a haven for outdoorsy types, The Poachers Arms also includes a secure, lockable shed where you can stash your outdoor equipment and bikes.

There’s space for up to 25 cars on the driveway, but you can also get a train straight from Piccadilly to Hope.

Hope itself is one of the prettiest villages in the north of England, full of cafes, pubs and shops, and isn’t far from the popular village of Castleton.

You’ll also be in easy reach of Hathersage and its open air swimming pool.

Prices off-season can get as low as £2064 for a two-night stay – so if you fill the pub, that’s only around £30 per person, per night.
