Brilliant Stay
Spent few days / nights with family at Poachers; beautiful setting, great place for family get together; all rooms on suite, loads of space, pool table, tennis table etc, great bar, hot tub amazing; thanks to owners for putting us up, we had a lovely stay, will be returning foe another get together; nearby town Castletown is beautiful

Photos don?t do it justice!
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!

Large family holiday
We received a warm welcome from the owners and a full tour of our holiday home. There was 23 in our family aged between 3 months to 69 years young. We were all extremely happy with our bedrooms which were all en-suite, beautifully decorated and beds were very comfy. Our week here was absolutely amazing and we didn?t want to go home. The kitchen was big and had excellent facilities, we had a big roast dinner on Sunday which we ate in the huge conservatory. The hot tub was used all week by all of us, not sure if it was the kids or adults that enjoyed it the most!! The teenagers enjoyed the pool table and football table and also the outdoor table tennis got used a lot as the weather was amazing. The bar was fantastic, we filled the fridges with drinks and shelves with snacks. The kids and adults enjoyed being behind the bar serving each other (non-alcoholic for the kids lol). Some evenings were spent in the comfy lounge area or around the breakfast bar in the kitchen playing card games. This self catering holiday home is perfect for large groups who want to explore the beautiful countryside. We would definitely go back again.

Best party venue ever!!!
Now I've booked my own party I'm happy to rate this place. I was afraid of missing the date since they are booked up so far in advance. We arrived on Friday for a friends 40th and within an hour knew I wanted the venue for mine the next year. We were welcomed by one of the team who showed us around and explained how everything worked. This bits important as the hotel is brilliantly kitted out and you want to get the most from it. Audio that plays throughout the ground floor. A kitchen that is modern, bright and brilliantly equipped. 2 of every appliance, huge cookers just brilliant. Easy to cater for a huge party. TV area, pool table, table football, ps3 with a good selection of games. Massive conservatory that we ended up using for the disco on the Saturday night. Outdoor play area suitable for under 10s I'd estimate. Jacuzzi in a clean and warm hot so its cozy even when the weather is shocking. Plenty of parking at the front and side. The rooms were lovely. 9 rooms all with double beds. One with 2 bunk beds and another with one bunk. Friday night was a quite affair with a few friends. Saturday daytime we found activities around the area. Some went walking or jogging. Others went clay pigeon shooting, just loads to do. Saturday evening was the big 40 with a band and full buffet. We had brought our own booze so had filled the fridges. Felt great serving yourself behind a real bar and people were eager to help each other. The whole weekend was just perfect,. Lisa and the team couldn't be more helpful and I'm looking forward to my 40th in 2020. Book here, it's great value and you will have a great time.

Familiar yet not! - Well worth the money
Its a strange feeling that you are somewhere familiar, a pub with all the features of a pub, but then it feels like a permanent lock in. Features - 9 double rooms with bathrooms. Clean and tidy. Well equipped kitchen with lots of space to move about, two cookers, two microwaves, a hot water boiler, 2 dishwashers; and they were needed as we seemed to run out plates rather quickly. There is a hot tub, and a conservatory which we used as both a large dining area and the dance floor, for the birthday party.
