I must say it was a very nice location and environment to stay in. No mod cons here just good clean rooms, lovely breakfast along with friendly & welcoming staff . Pity our stay was only for one night

What a find! Booked a weekend here on the basis of the reviews in tripadvisor and could not have been more delighted. The hall itself is a fascinating historic building having been extended and modified many times over the centuries.The recent renovations to make it suitable for paying guests have been enough to make your stay comfortable without destroying the 'old world' feeling of the house.
Finally, special mention has to be made of our hosts, Lolly and Steve, who worked so hard to make our stay both pleasant and comfortable. They are a true asset to the house.

Step back in time to a place of true style and charm steeped in local history. My wife and I had a short break at Lea Hall and enjoyed every minute. We loved the place and could not fault the attention and true friendliness of our hosts Lolly and Steve. The breakfast is superb and there was plenty of it! Once again thankyou for a truly special experience and we will definitely be back in the not too distant future...

I stayed at Lea Hall with my teenage daughter when we went on a walking trip. The hall is just as you see it on their website. Lolly and Steve who looked after us were very welcoming and friendly. The beds are the most comfortable we have every slept in and breakfast was amazing - you ordered whatever you wanted the night before and then it is cooked for you when you go down. Also, the local pub, the Glass and Jug, is just down the road and serves excellent meals at a very reasonable price.

My wife and I stayed here in June for 3 nights. The house is fantastic, the site dates back to around the 1200's and the house is full of charm and character.

Steve and Lorraine who run the house give you a lovely warm welcome and are wonderful hosts. The location is wonderful and its so quiet you are guaranteed a good nights sleep.

The beds are huge and have to say are the best ones we had ever slept on in a hotel.

A wondefrul house, recenlty refurbished but retaining all the original charm.

There is a nice pub 10 minutes walk on your left coming out of the hotel and theres a great curry house in Matlock which they can recommend to you.

You will not be dissapoiinted if you choose to stay here.

Thanks Lorraine and Steve for being great hosts, we still look back on our chats with lorraine after breakfast who gave us so much on the history of the place.....and it meant Steve had to do the washing up! ;-)

I booked Lea Hall as a surprise for my partner for his birthday. I'd seen the photos on the internet ans thought what a beautiful place to spend the night. I booked a luxury room. When we arrived Lolly (the housekeeper) showed us around the house and then showed us to our room. Wow...it was more beautiful than the pictures show. The house is full of character and a lot of the original styling has been kept.
At night, your bed is turned down for you and you are left with two flasks of hot chocolate and a home made cookie each. (which were eaten straight away, not a crumb left.)
The place is immaculate and you really feel like you are the only people in the place.
It has 10 rooms for adults only which was lovely. No children, a perfect chance to get away without the kids for some us time.
The breakfast was to die for, so beautifully cooked and all locally sourced produce. Sat at a long banquetting table, you felt like a king and queen!
We can't thank Lolly and Steve enough for our stay, They are top class hosts and we felt so comfortable, it was as though we had been guests in their own home.
We will definately be going back soon and can't recommend Lea Hall enough.
Thankyou so much for everything you did for us. It was perfect. X

A NIght at Lea Hall
It seemed a little daunting as we approached Lea Hall. It is an imposing 18th century building and looks at first glance dark and broody. We were met by Lolly and her husband who made us very welcome. We were the only guests in the house and as Lolly lives in the cottage next door we had the house to ourselves. Our room was very good with creaky but original floorboard and wooden shutters on the windows instead of curtains and felt in essence we were sleeping in another century. The en suite bathroom was a little disappointing as there was no ventilation and although it had a huge cast iron bath that one could almost swim in, it only had a hand held shower. A shower bracket on the wall above the bath and a curtain would have been appreciated but I would not say this as a complaint, more just a wish for future visits. There is no provision for evening meals but it is a short walk to the Jug and Glass pub for excellent food and beer. Breakfast could only be described as the best we have ever had and was truly excellent. I would say that it is worth staying at Lea Hall and experiencing what life was like for a country gentleman's family in the 18th century. Look in the library and kitchen and the walled garden and feel the history. A must if you enjoy country houses and one we will gladly revisit.
