Always fancied the idea of running a pub, but not quite ready to commit? Then you may want to head to the Poacher's Arms.

The cosy pub sits in the heart of the village of Hope, in the Peak District, and it's been transformed into a holiday home, for a pub lock in unlike any other!

Guests can make full use of the pub's original features including the comfortable furniture, wood burners, TV screens and, of course, the bar.

In fact, those who book a stay can pre-order kegs of cider and beer, so that when they arrive at the holiday home they can pull their own pints and get to play the role of landlord/landlady.

Other highlights include a games room complete with table football and a pool table – and for those who want a bit of extra glamour, the property also boasts its own covered hot tub.

Not bad.

The pub-turned-holiday-home is perfect for big groups as it can sleep up to 30 people across the nine bedrooms (each bedroom comes with an ensuite bathroom),.

As well as the quirky pub features, the property boasts a huge, state-of-the-art kitchen with everything you could need to whip up meals for 30 people, while the conservatory has been adapted to become a huge dining room.

Meanwhile, the two living rooms have everything you need for a cosy night in thanks to the large sofas and Smart TVs on offer.

For those who are bringing kids along on the trip, the play area is sure to be a hit thanks to its swings, a slide and a climbing wall. (If the British weather lets you down, the games room has a TV with a games console if you're looking to keep the kids busy).

If you do fancy heading out, there are plenty more pubs (working ones) as well as restaurants, cafés and plenty of local attractions to discover.

Lisa Totty, who owns and manages the Poacher's Arms with her parents, said: "We love the quirkiness of the property and knew it would be ideal for large groups looking for something a bit different."

She explained that they previously ran a hotel for six years and nowadays they work with close friends and a cleaning team to keep the pub in tip top condition.

The Poacher's Arms has already welcomed large groups of guests – and even the occasional wedding reception!
