There's a group of 20+ of us who take an annual long weekend, and I'm always amazed at what fabulous accommodation our group leader is able to find! Lea Hall was no exception. We visited in March and the house was lovely and warm with good central heating as well as the option of open fires in the public rooms.... More

We hired Lea Hall for our wedding party in August. We were married in nearby Matlock and our weekend was everything we hoped it would be made all the more special by staying in such a fabulous venue. The house was intriguing and enchanting and our guests were thrilled to be staying in such a unique house. Chequers catering company... More

We held our joint 40th's here and celebrated in perfect style. It was a real delight seeing our guests faces as they wandered around choosing their bedrooms, each one stunning. The dining table was set out for us when we arrived which was a really nice touch, of the housekeeper Lolly. She was there when we needed her at the... More

Ignore the photograph of the hall, you must venture indoors to appreciate the charm and charactor of this wonderful old manor house. We stayed just 2 nights bed and breakfast (and what a breakfast)! no need to eat for the rest of the day! We stayed in the 'Chocolate' room! A large spacious room with a super size bed and... More

I visited Lea Hall with my adult daughter, as she lives in the North and I in the South, Matlock was the ideal area to meet. It was dark when we were looking for the property, and did experience difficulty in finding it. It is not well lit, or signed when day light has disappeared. However, the welcome we received...

We stayed as a large group at Lea Hall - using all of the bedrooms on a self-catering basis. We found that the kitchen was not what we expected - it is completely stainless steel - not quite the "beamed kitchen" we were expecting from the English Country cottages website description. It has plenty of fridge space but no storage... More

We were not surprised to receive this review, despite viewing our property twice prior to arrival. The reviewer whom had made the booking through a well-known agent, complained in writing to the agent before even taking up residence at the property. At this point the reviewer was offered a full refund or relocation, which was refused, instead choosing to go... More

We had a fantastic stay at Lea Hall, the property itself is far more impressive than any of the photos suggest and is dripping with character and quirky touches which we loved. If you are a fan of old buildings, National Trust or English Heritage and are looking for that certain special experience that transports you back in time -... More

Stayed here for my husbands Birthday. It is not your typical hotel,bb, but is an alternative to the norm. The house is old and quirky and the floors in the bedroom dip, which all add to the charm of the place. There is no reception area and you need to ring ahead . Lolly who greeted us and runs the...

I concur with the majority of other guests on the quality of service, the interesting rooms and breakfast, so won't go into further detail. If your ideal accommodation is cloned rooms with everything precise and square, then maybe this place is not for you, and certainly tall people need to make allowances to accommodate themselves in a building where bedroom...

To appreciate this lovely old historic building you will have to appreciate the quirks expected that go with this lovely old house. A priviige to visit and stay, we had a lovely time with champagne and chocs on arrival and hot chocolate and shortbread early evening which was a special touch on a special occasion. The staff were lovely and... More
