Living Eyre

“Gentleman’s manor house” that inspired Charlotte Brontë’s Thornfield Hall in ‘Jane Eyre’ available to rent for just £14,400 per year; alternatively you could take a tiny studio in SW3 for the same sum

 

Described by Charlotte Brontë (1775 – 1817) as being “three storeys high; a gentleman’s manor house; battlements round the top gave it a picturesque look” in Jane Eyre, Thornfield Hall was where Jane Eyre became a governess and where she fell for Mr Rochester. The 16th century building that is said to have been Brontë’s primary inspiration, North Lees Hall, is now available to rent and is offered for the same sum as a poky 179 square foot studio in Chelsea Cloisters in London, SW3.

  1. Ridiculous!!!!!! It is in the middle of nowhere and no doubt the tourists come to peer in the windows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Better off knock it down!!!!!!!!!!!!! Build a nice modern house and move on!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Rod – You truly are an imbecile. This is history and it is beautiful. You plainly don’t have much of that in convict land matey boy.

  3. I imagine it isn’t served by a bus route. That would be the only thing to put off a pensioner like me (and maybe it has a lot of steep stairs too).

  4. £1200 per month is way too much for this property.

    In such a remote location with only 3 bedrooms. Its characterful but would only appeal to a young couple with no children. That demographic have been priced out.

    Those with kids would find a school run difficult. Not to mention raising children in such a remote location.

      • Nothing like a bit of cold isolation from society.

        Lets face it, this property inst appropriate for anyone with children.

        If you don’t mind sticking your kids on a train for a school run I suppose they get to enjoy a 1 hour 20 minuet journey to Silverdale School every day.

        Like I said, this property is suited to a young couple with an interest in history. They’ve been priced out so who’s this aimed at?

        They will struggle to get a tenant for this. Or is that the idea?

  5. I’ve stayed in this property when it was a holiday rental….it’s lovely, but to live in all round has some major challenges: No wifi..wall so thick that even if you installed a hefty router and repeater would struggle. It is in the middle of nowhere and as is listed you can do very little to it even in terms of internal décor. Also the particulars don’t tell you that there is a farmer and his wife living in the adjoining part of the hall. The Peak District authority have sat on this property for a year and a half and have now chosen the worst option…renting it privately. They should continue to offer it as a holiday let/community space so that the public can enjoy this fabulous building

  6. Wow, talk about overpriced…

    Good luck to the estate agents in finding someone gullible enough to live here..
