Last of the Summer Wine was a quintessential British sitcom and remains the longest-running comedy series in TV history. And, one fan favourite character that you wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of was Nora Batty and you can stay at Nora Batty’s cottage in Holmfirth.
That’s right located in the heart of the Holme Valley where Last of the Summer Wine was filmed. You can stay at Nora Batty’s cottage and it’s as nostalgic as you can imagine.
Nora’s home featured in the opening shot of the first-ever episode of the sitcom until the last of the 295 episodes the show ran for over 38 years – so you’d be staying in a piece of history.
Located at No. 28 Huddersfield Road the picturesque riverside cottage has some of the most famous steps in television history. Nora Batty’s Cottage is a characterful two-bedtroom terraced house furnished and maintained exactly how Nora would have like it.
The whole terraced house is a homage to Nora Batty and Last of the Summer wine with wonderful pictures displayed throughout.
Number 28 Huddersfield Road might be considered a rather unremarkable-sounding address, but it is, in fact, one of the most recognisable locations in the history of British television. This is because the picturesque riverside cottage, accessed by its famous steps, is the prim and proper home of none other than bossy battleaxe and TV comedy icon, Nora Batty.
Vintage, retro, and more just the right amount of nostalgia, Nora Batty’s cottage is the perfect home-from- home.

Just becomes Nora’s house remains a nostalgic haven doesn’t mean Holmfirth hasn’t change. The landscape remains a beautiful reminder of the sitcom with its green roll hills, but the food options are vast.
Pop to Poppa Piccolino’s Italin restaurant for an authentic Italian experience, or Bengal Spice for a lovely Indian dining experience. And, it would be a quaint Yorkshire setting without a tearoom and Wrinkled Stocking Tea Rooms is next door to the cottage and was founded by Holmfirth tourism champion Dorothy Gregg.
