- Seasonal menu, top-notch drinks, log fires and quiz nights
Merry? You may well be positively gleeful during a stay at The Three Merry Lads, a fab country pub in a mighty handy location a mere 15 minutes’ drive from central Sheffield.
All the elements of true country pub style are in evidence here: a menu of seasonal and classic dishes created with local produce, plenty of choice on the drinks front (including top-notch gins, wines and coffees as well as a range of beers) and a couple of log fires to cosy up by on chillier days. And you’d best swot up on your trivia if you’re swinging by on a Thursday, as there’s a chance to flex that brain at the weekly quiz night.
Dogs are welcome, of course, as are kids – there’s a collection of board games to keep them amused indoors and a playground outside, handily close to the outdoor seating area for easy keeping-an-eye.
You’ll not have to trot far from the bar to get set for your slumbers, as pitches are in the main car park just outside the pub. Water and electrical connections are provided, and you can connect to the pub’s wifi service.
And on top of all this… seen those views? (If not, take a quick squiz at the pics now.) Yes indeed, you’re right on the edge of the Peak District National Park here; so close you can even work up an appetite on walking trails directly from the pub’s gates.
This site has no on-site toilet and shower facilities.

Come all set for Peak District action? Stride straight out of the site and you can be on paths that’ll take you off to nearby nature reserves and reservoirs. Beyond that are miles and miles of walking trails around the park and plenty of other options for alfresco activity: steer to Stanage Edge (20 minutes’ drive) for rock climbing scrambles, or to Ringinglow (10 minutes) for archery and horse riding.
Bimbling around various villages is a splendid way to spend a day or two: nearby faves include Hathersage (20 minutes), Hope (25 minutes) and a pudding pilgrimage to Bakewell (half an hour). Castleton (half an hour) is a great place to poke around, too – climb to Peveril Castle for scenic views and then delve deep down for an underground boat ride at Speedwell Cavern or to see the pretty rocks of the Blue John Cavern.
Chatsworth Estate (40 minutes away) is always a good bet for a day out – it’s not just a stately home but also fab gardens, a farmyard and an adventure playground. And of course there’s also the option of urban wanderings in the fine city that is Sheffield (15 minutes away).
