Welcome to Florence Nightingale Suites

  • 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, a World Heritage Site on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

  • The house has been lovingly furnished with many elegant period pieces and Nightingale artefacts, whilst also retaining the genuine warmth and comfort of a family home.
    Each of our 4 historic Suites enjoys beautiful views over the surrounding countryside.

Lea Hurst, Lea Shaw, Holloway, Derbyshire, DE4 5AT, United Kingdom

The sat nav will leave you a few hundred yards short of our entrance. Keep heading down Yew Tree Hill…the turning to our driveway is off this road, directly opposite the end of Church Street and just before the Florence Nightingale Memorial Hall (a red brick building on your left). You will see a 5-bar wooden gate with a name plaque for Lea Hurst in the middle.
