Amazing town was Ilkley with our family of 4 kids aged 7-12. Caught the city bus from Leeds X84 to Ilkley about 1 hour. Went to Cafe Nero before the hike to cow n calf. Went off road onto grass path away from traffic and it was an easy climb up the hill. Our kids loved it. Only 30mins walk from town to cow n calf. Views spectacular and worth it. Great Rock climbing & easy. Continued on upper path to the next hill and came down towards the white cottage cafe to gardens. Cooled off at the garden shallow pond and walked down to town river where kids jumped in and skimmed rocks. River was fabulous entertainment and playground was good too. Went to pub for lunch and food was great. We loved Ilkley and will be back. Natural Scenery was beautiful. Our family loved it. X Melbourne Australia.

Not been here for years, the sun was shining so we had a ride out. Fantastic views, nice walk and it was fascinating looking at the names carved into the rocks, many with dates and going back to the 1800’s! Wow. Some real history here and a great place to visit. Little cafe in the car park, free parking and a lovely place to visit. We will go back.

Need to know where the car park is first

My wife and I visited ilkley moor cow and calf rocks on our 2019 tour of yorkshire.

It is very pretty and very high up, with lovely views of the moor.

Well recommended, would visit again.

Parked in the car park for a walk up on the moor, after a brief shower of rain the sun came out to make a great walk even better, will be back !

These rocks are a must visit high up on Ilkley moor. Car park is situated at the side of the main road with the rocks a quick 2 minute walk from there. Great view down onto Ilkley itself.
