The Hope Valley Mansion That Inspired Charlotte Brontë To Write Jane Eyre Is Up For Sale

Set in the beautiful Peak District within Hope Valley, the six-bedroom Moorseats Hall dates way back to the 1300’s, and even provided Charlotte Brontë with the inspiration to write the classic novel, Jane Eyre.

The property is seeping with history, with Brontë visiting the property back in the 1840’s with her friend Ellen Nussey. At the time, the property was owned by Thomas Eyre, brother of the tenant of North Lees.

The manor is widely presumed to be the Moor House in Jane Eyre – with the writer even naming the titular character after the owning family. The property was a moorland barn house at the time of Brontë’s visit, and was considerably extended by Thomas Eyre in the years following.

The piece of property is breathtakingly elaborate, with 25 acres of land to call your own and even a helipad – which could all be yours for a cool £3 million. With unparalleled views of the Peak District and the valley, the home has an idyllic, homely feel to it, perfect for retreating away from the rest of civilisation.

If a helipad wasn’t quite lavish enough for you, the property also features its very own tennis court and swimming pool, both of which overlook the nearby church and Peak District.

While modernised inside, the manor looks exactly as it would have centuries ago, boasting its beautiful original features from the 1300s, with a small courtyard that you could imagine the women of previous centuries enjoying with a cup of tea.

The home features a sizeable living room, an open kitchen and dining space, a grand reception hall and porch, additional dining room, sitting area, six bedrooms, five bathrooms, two dressing rooms, and even a staff flat (you know, for all your servants).
