North Lees Hall
Reviewed May 22, 2011

Myself and four family members were fortunate enough to have the pleasure of a long weekend break here, we had the run of the whole property and massively enjoyed ourselves, we spent much of our time watching the lambs which surrounded the property, walking the gorgeous countryside and relaxing reading our books either wrapped up warmly on the roof or snuggled by the gorgeous wood burning fire, my husband and I slept well in the ground floor room on our canopied bed, the house was well stocked and immaculate and we had a fantastic time, even though we kept getting lost and were all a bit scared of the staircase!:) all this break was lacking was a few more sharp knives in the kitchen and the shuffling of a ghostly form in the attic!! Highly recommended!

Just returned from 5 day stay at North Lees Hall. What a fantastic place. Went with friends, hall is divided into two apartments, both with own fully fitted kitchen including dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and fridge freezer. Four poster beds in each main bedroom and in our apartment extra twin bed room inter connecting. This is a fabulous place to stay and get away from the maddening crowd. Lovely walks (we are not walkers but enjoyed the area so much). Had our evening meal around 5.00 as then we bolted down for the evening sitting in our lounge with our friends, lit the log fire (lots of logs already prepared for your stay) enjoyed good wine, good snacky food and excellent friendship. Hardly any phone signel so great to get away and just contact who you want when you want. Glorious views from on top of the tower can see for miles and miles. This is a place where you really must stay. As this place was so good and the facilities extra special (on arrival basket including wine, jam, bread, pasta, pasta sauce and milk, butter and bacon in the fridge) we have just booked to stay in Arley Tower at the next bank holiday and get a 5% discount as we have stayed in North Lees. Great place for adults and also if you have children historical place to stay and good for visiting surrounding areas. You will NOT be disappointed.

North Lees Hall is a 17th century Hall, renovated by the non-profit Vivat Trust. My wife and I stayed in the ground floor appartment for a week last July. The appartment had an very spacious combined sittingroom/bedroom. We slept onder a canopy. The citchen is also spacious and very well equiped (washer, dryer, dishwasher, oven). The bathroom is on the first floor, the stairs are rather narrow. The sitting room has furniture in the 17th century style. Our only comment is that the twoseater was really too small for two people to sit comfortably.
North Lees Hall is situated in the middle of nature. The views from the house are fantastic. It is an excellent base to walk in the Peak District countryside. Stanage Edge is just 10 minutes walk from the door. Hathersage is a nice little village (you absolutely need a car to get there) with a couple of nice pubs that serve good meals and sufficient shops to get all the stuff to prepare your own meals. On arrival in the Hall you will find a basket with ample food for the first evening.
We did not have very good wheather all the time. No problem, read Emily Bronte or watch the dvd of Jane Eyre.

We stayed at North Lees Hall on a long, get away from it all weekend. A perfect location, with a great standard of fixtures and fittings and a real feel for the properties age and history. Added extras such as molton brown toiletries and super hamper made the weekend have a touch of luxury. Plenty of cut logs for the open fire for you to sit and drink your bottle of red wine. The kitchen is more than adequate with large centre kitchen table. The views are to die for, even when taking a long hot bath after the brisk walk across the hills. An excellent way to spend a long weekend with your favorite person. Booking through Vivat.org

This is a 17th century "tower house," in an amazing location in the Peaks District. The view was astounding, the building itself fascinating. The main bedroom included a canopied bed straight out of the Elizabethan era. Persian rugs were scattered in each room. Very well equiped and functional kitchen. Rooftop patio with panoramic view of the surrounding area. However, the upper apartment requires walking an old wooden spiral stair with rope guides from room to room -- difficult if you have any mobility problems. Great place to stay, one of the nonprofit Vivat Trust's historic properties ---.
