The converted pub and restaurant sits in the village of Hope and had been empty for a year before being lovingly renovated by its current owner.

It now boasts nine bedrooms, each with their own en-suite, creating a one of a kind staycation experience.

Originally a working pub for over 20 years, the bar area has retained the same décor as when it was open to the public, with traditional red patterned carpets, wood burners and authentic furniture.

The original sign remains outside the pub and kegs of beer, cider and lager can be pre-ordered before visitors arrive, with guests acting as landlords and landladies.

In the garden, there is a covered hot tub and an enclosed play area, equipped with swings, a slide and a climbing wall.

The property, which can sleep up to 30 people, has become a popular place to stay amongst large groups, including hen and stag parties, and wedding receptions.

And, just over a mile away is Castleton where visitors can find Peveril Castle and the stunning Winnats Pass.

Lisa Totty, who owns and manages the pub alongside 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. The village is very popular with tourists and we’ve had guests return to stay year after year.”
