Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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.

This is an historical building that we hired from the Vivat Trust. It is self-catering. Sleeps six with 2 bathrooms, a good kitchen and two living rooms. Log burning stoves and central heating both work. You can get more details about the building from the Vivat Trust web site - and they are true. It is an impressive looking building (that inspired Jane Eyre's Thornfield Hall) with lots of appropriate interior decor and architectural features. But perhaps the best thing is the location - you can be at the top of Stanage Edge after a 15 min walk and Derwent dams after a 15 min drive. We came away without any complaints and plenty of good memories.

We stayed here for my husbands 60th birthday and loved it! It's a beautiful property and it was lovely to stay in a house with such history. It's a quirky property and you do need to be able to climb stairs but it all adds to the beauty and uniqueness of the place. It was spotlessly clean and the welcome basket was the best we've ever had! We thought it might be a cold and draughty place but it was the opposite, cosy and warm, especially with the log burners lit. It's in a beautiful setting and the views are wonderful, especially from the roof terrace. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need. It was great to have our own mansion for the weekend. We would definitely return.

I stayed at this amazing property for a week in February 2014, with my family. It is a stunning building, with a turreted roof terrace, spiral staircase, 4 poster bed , great hall dining room and a very modern fully fitted kitchen. The central heating system was great, it kept us all warm, despite the wet stormy weather. Log fires added to the charm. Two modern bathrooms, one with a view over Stannage Edge! Everything we needed was provided, even a fully packed provisions basket. Can't wait to go back there! Our family enjoyed games of hide and seek around this great " castle"

Our family stayed at North Lees for our grandmothers 90th birthday as she loves Jane Eyre (we also visited nearby Haddon Hall). The place and surroundings were stunning and we had an amazing time!! Its quite rural and we arrived quite late in the evening so got lost trying to find it (the instructions we were given weren't that great) but once we got there it made the added hour to our journey worth it. The facilities were just right for our needs and the welcome pack was very thorough (it includes a bottle of wine). Those that were able went of several walks in the area and we were very fortunate with the weather which added to the amazing views. Although we would warn any parties with elderly or those who have difficulty walking that they won't be able to get around very well and the stair cases at North Lees are steep, narrow and crooked. Overall, we all had a great time and would recommend others to have a go and see it for themselves (photos don't do it justice).
