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.
Lea Hurst is open to guests and fans keen to follow in Florence’s footsteps. Lea Hurst is also a convenient base from which to explore the delights of the Peak District.
The owner of Lea Hurst is a passionate Florence Nightingale fan with a collection of interesting Nightingale and Crimea related artefacts. If you are interested in staying at Lea Hurst then please make contact directly via email@example.com, quoting “Florence2020”.
