    “Perfect For Those Looking For Something a Little Different.”

    Any Last of the Summer Wine fans would be in seventh heaven here. The walls are covered in memorabilia with action shots of the cast and some signed. The cottage is very atmospheric, Norah’s bloomers and stockings are still drying on the kitchen airer yet having all the comforts of modern day living. In colder weather it is snug and cosy but in the warm weather it would be lovely to sit out at the front in the garden chairs in the sun with the river flowing below. ...

    Any Last of the Summer Wine fans would be in seventh heaven here. The walls are covered in memorabilia with action shots of the cast and some signed. The cottage is very atmospheric, Norah’s bloomers and stockings are still drying on the kitchen airer yet having all the comforts of modern day living. In colder weather it is snug and cosy but in the warm weather it would be lovely to sit out at the front in the garden chairs in the sun with the river flowing below. With the kitchen at the bottom and the living room and bathroom above and the bedrooms up yet another short flight of stairs there are far too many stairs to make this an option for someone who finds steps difficult. However, for the rest of us this cottage makes for a lovely change from the usual boring and bland holiday rentals. There is even a gorgeous complimentary Norah Batty Teddy Bear, complete with hair curlers, waiting for you in the kitchen - we were really touched by this kind gesture. Holmfirth itself is an atmospheric small town with northern charm and many interesting shops, cafes and pubs. There’s a charabanc tour of all the LotSW filming locations taking in such gems as the track where Howard and Pearl came careering down to the road on bikes while Pearl passed on the top deck of a double-decker bus. Sid’s Cafe is still to be found in the centre of town and Compo’s Chippy does a mean cod & chips a little further out. Next door to Norah’s is The Wrinkled Stocking Cafe so you are never far away from a latte or a fantastic full English. All-in-all we had a terrific week and would not hesitate to recommend Norah Batty’s Cottage for anyone looking for comfy quirky accommodation or something different for a change. We found booking easy and owner, Loretta, a pleasure to deal with.

The property

Stay in Nora Batty’s Cottage!

A unique opportunity to enjoy a fabulous holiday in pennine West Yorkshire while staying in one of the most famous and recognisable homes in British television history.

Accessed by its famous steps, the picturesque riverside cottage situated at 28 Huddersfield Road, in the Summer Wine town of Holmfirth is the former home of bossy battleaxe and TV comedy icon, Nora Batty.

Her characterful, two-bedroomed home is furnished and presented just the way she liked it, and it is also something of a shrine to Last of the Summer Wine with wonderful pictures from the series displayed throughout.

Be the envy of thousands of Summer Wine fans worldwide.

About the location

HOLMFIRTH

Meltham 4 miles; Peak District National Park 6 miles.

The old traditional Pennine town of Holmfirth is situated in the heart of the beautiful Holme Valley, on the edge of the West Yorkshire Pennines. Made famous by The Last of The Summer Wine TV series, there is more to Holmfirth than Compo and Nora Battye’s stockings! The ‘Picturedrome’, the North of England’s finest live music venue attracts many famous bands and is located right in the centre of the town. The pelotons from the Tour de France 2014 and the Tour de Yorkshire have both been through this quaint Holme Valley town en route to the iconic 524 metre Holme Moss climb two miles away. It is in these hills where cycling’s triple Olympic Medalist Ed Clancy grew up. Holmfirth also has a good public swimming pool and fitness centre, parks and some super shops and restaurants. The people here are friendly, the streets are quaint and the scenery is breathtaking. The Peak District National Park with its moors, dales, forests, lakes and reservoirs is also easily accessible. The Upper Derwent Valley, home to the spectacular Ladybower and Derwent reservoirs, and where the famous 617 ‘Dambusters’ Squadron practiced the audacious bombing raid on the Ruhr valley in 1943, is only a short scenic drive away. Slightly further is Chatsworth, the stately home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and situated close to the market town of Bakewell, the home of Bakewell Puddings. The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, The National Coal Mining Museum, Wentworth Castle, and the Hepworth Gallery are also within short drives away and well worth a visit.
