“It breaks my heart to leave Lea Hurst!”. So said Florence Nightingale of her home nestled in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, 16-miles from the City of Derby.
With 2020 marking the bicentenary of the birth of ‘The Lady with the Lamp’, the historic childhood home of the founder of modern nursing is now open for romantic B&B breaks.
Lea Hurst is currently offering a Valentine Weekend two-night stay on a B&B basis, including a complimentary bottle of champagne, in the Florence Nightingale Suite (including Nightingale’s private sitting room). The price is £550 inclusive, or £660 including one candlelit 3-course dinner for two in the Nightingale’s dining room. Available dates are Friday 14 to Sunday 16 February.
