We could not have planned this any better. When we arrived we were greeted with the local theatre group dressed in character for the upcoming Jane Eyre show that is to take place at North Lees Hall. This just mad the day even better for the wife. The cast stayed in character throughout our visit. If the Hall ever opens its doors for something like this again I would highly recommend it. The front room cafe served quality cakes and buns that were enjoyed by everyone in my family. The seating outside began to fill up quickly but the staff were so efficient that a seat was soon available for us to sit and enjoy our food. Crafts were available for the children, even big kids like me. I got to make a Jane Eyre spoon puppet. Wife took it from me as soon as it was finished. The nerve. There are toilet facilities that have been very well maintained. This was such a relief as the ones in the town centre were disgusting and have definitely not been cleaned in months. All in all a good day out for us all, followed by a walk on the peaks.

This weekend saw an open weekend at North Lees and I got the amazing opportunity to visit the rooms within this iconic building. It's future to where things are going with the hall sounds a little uncertain but it certainly is well worth supporting which the local community in Hathersage is doing. Everyone should venture up the paths from Hathersage as so many have obviously done in the past. It is an easy walk from the centre of Hathersage village which takes approximately 40 minutes

Although North Lees Hall is no longer available as a holiday let it is now possible to enjoy tea and superb home baked cakes in the garden. Walking down from Stanage Edge where the views over Hathersage and the heather clad moorland are superb we were delighted to find this atmospheric house, built in 1410 by Robert Eyre and used by Charlotte Bronte as the setting for Thornfield Hall, home of Mr Rochester in her novel Jane Eyre. There has been a farm on this site for over 2000 years and the setting is unrivalled in this part of Derbyshire.

Just spent a long weekend at North lees hall. It was everything I imagined it to be and more. Felt very special to be in a place with such history. The hall was warm and had everything we needed. Our neighbours popped round to see us through the kitchen windows. Felt like we were part of the Cravendale advert. The bed in the master bedroom could do,with being bigger. It was a double but being a four poster felt quite small and enclosed. There is a need for a full height shower. These were only small points though as the views from the roof were outstanding.

We had an amazing time at North Lees. We were told about Vivat Trust by an aquaintance and North Lees provided us with an opportunity to revisit the Peak District. The location is great with Stanage Edge and some other wonderful walks right on the doorstep. And yet Sheffield is only 8 miles away and Manchester easily accesible by rail for those who want city and country together. The house itself is wonderful and I spent many evenings with a glass of wine just looking at the wonderful ceiling rather than waitching TV! I probably got lost a few times given the double staircase but that is part of the quirkiness of an old building. The views are superb though we went in March and couldn't make use of the roof terrace which I imgaine being wonderful in the summer. We were sad to leave this house and this beautiful part of the country.
