An original 17th century farm house, that was developed into a country home on the orders of Florence Nightingale's father.
Florence Nightingale was deeply attached to Lea Hurst, the family's summer home, and she once wrote that "it breaks my heart to leave Lea Hurst". We can certainly see why.
Lea Hurst 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. With the views, the location and the history, this is the perfect location for filming any period drama.
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.
