Stay at Florence’s Childhood Home in Lea Hurst

Follow Florence’s footsteps and stay in her childhood bedroom.

Florence Nightingale was deeply attached to Lea Hurst, the family’s summer home, writing that “it breaks my heart to leave Lea Hurst”. It is easy to see why. The house sits in a magnificent position, on the edge of the village of Holloway, overlooking the Derwent Valley.

As Nightingale’s bicentenary approaches, Lea Hurst is open to offer the Nightingale Suite to guests and fans keen to follow in her footsteps. Lea Hurst is also a convenient base from which to explore the delights of the Peak District.
