    “Photos don’t do it justice!”

    This is a proper WOW place to stay ...

    This is a proper WOW place to stay! The moment we walked in the front door we were amazed at the size of the property. We had a lovely welcome & tour of the house from Lisa’s mum showing us everything we needed to know. The bar, games area and comfy lounge area all flow easily together allowing everyone to enjoy each part of it together whilst there is ample space for anyone wanting a bit of quiet time. The sound system throughout the ground floor was great. The conservatory was excellent for everyone to eat together, we had caterers in on our first evening. 18 of us celebrating my dad’s 80th....perfect! No shortage of would be bartenders enjoying serving behind the bar Every part of the house was spotless & comfortable. Loads of equipment, crockery & utensils provided in the kitchen. We all had a fabulous stay. We had meals at both The Old Hall Hotel and also The Curry Cabin, an easy 10 minute walk from the house, both were excellent. A 20-25 minute drive into BAKEWELL we enjoyed wine tasting at The Derbyshire Winery and also visited Thornbridge Brewery. Both well worth a visit. We certainly hope we have the chance to return to The Poachers Arms one day.....I could live there quite easily!

Eight of these rooms are all on the first floor, with the ninth being situated on the ground floor which is ideal for those who do not wish to climb the stairs.

Not forgetting the three bed settees to sleep another 6 guests.

A large modern kitchen is well-equipped to cater for large parties with more than adequate appliances, including large Range cookers, and ample dining facilities.

The conservatory serves as a large dining room with adequate seating for everyone to all sit together around one large table.

Two large sitting rooms provide all the comfort you would expect with comfy seating and Smart TVs.

Situated between these is the lovely original bar which is in full working order for those evening get-togethers and for aspiring landlords in the party.

There is also a games area with a selection of table games and books, table football and a Smart TV and games console to help occupy the younger members of the party, whilst the fibre broadband will ensure a good connection for guests.

Outside is a large enclosed and safe gravelled area with a paved patio and covered hot tub, a charcoal barbecue and plenty of outdoor seating for groups to relax and drink in the fresh air whilst planning what to see or where to go next.

Also don’t forget there is an enclosed children’s play area with swings, slide and climbing wall, so you can sit back and relax knowing the children are safe.

Outside, there is also a secure lockable steel shed for any bikes and outdoor equipment.

The village of Hope has a selection of traditional pubs serving food, cafés and some lovely little shops, while just over a mile away is the popular village of Castleton with its Norman Castle, numerous caves to explore and the imposing Winnats Pass.

The pretty Peak District village of Hope lies in the heart of the Hope Valley, and on the doorstep of some great walking country. Set amongst the beautiful rolling hills of the Peak District National Park, the village boasts some village pubs which serve food, a general store, some very interesting shops and galleries to explore, and a railway station. Hope is perfectly situated for either an action-packed break full of caving, climbing, and great walks from the doorstep, or a quiet countryside break in this lovely part of the Peaks. The Winnats Pass cuts a course through superb scenery just a couple of miles away in Castleton, and is a delight for walkers, cyclists and motorists alike. Nearby are the pretty villages of Edale, the start of the Pennine Way, Castleton and Hathersage with its seasonal outdoor swimming pool, while horse riding and the wonderful Castleton Caves are all available within 3 miles.
