Nothing beats the blurry buzz of a lock-in.

You're surrounded by friends and empty glasses, stray nuts and crisps littered across the table.

The jingle of the Last Orders bell feels like a lifetime ago. Most clientele have long since shuffled out into the dark streets in search of the flickering white lights of the takeaway.

But, instead of the landlord ushering you to follow suit, they quietly bolt the doors closed.

It's a blissful feeling. The pub is all yours.

Now, it turns out, you can replicate the joy of the lock-in down the road in the Peak District.

The old Poacher's Arms pub on Castleton Road has been renovated into a country house - with the bar remaining intact. The owners even supply barrels of beer so you can pour your own pints whilst you're there.

Unsurprisingly, the residence (which fits 30 people) is mighty popular with stag dos, and if you don't fancy getting behind the bar and pulling the pumps yourself, you can request staff to do it all for you.

There's also comfy bed for the night, lounge area, dining space, hot tub, smart TV, Playstation 3, board games, books, air hockey and football table.

So, pretty much everything you could want on a holiday.
