We so much enjoyed our visit to Ilkley that we have returned before the clocks go back. This time we stayed in a different cottage. It's an old Victorian cottage, full of character but decked out with all modern equipment and fittings. Highly recommended. There...More

We were staying here while visiting relatives and it was just what we needed. Lovely, friendly owner and agent who made sure we settled in. It was an easy drive to many tourist sites and a quick walk up onto the moor. The 2 pigs...More

Tilly and Terry (our two June-kune pigs) are long-standing family pets. We don't have an agent here - it's either Tim and Paula or our lovely manager Justine!

Very easy to find, fantastic location (next to the moor); lots of small details catered for, small items needed in the kitchen were in place (eg salt, pepper, dishwasher stuff). Plenty of room and nicely decorated

About the neighbourhood
Ilkley Moor is Yorkshires most famous location! Your cottage is situated on the very edge of both Ilkley spa town and Ilkley Moor. You are literally on the Moor as soon as you walk across the cattle grid at the entrance gates! Whilst there is little traffic other than the odd passing sheep, deer or pheasant, youre not going to find yourself in the middle of nowhere staying here. Its a rural location with Ilkley itself just ten minutes stroll down through the woods. All the key places - town and country - that you might want to get to are within easy reach (by road or by rail). As a base for sight-seeing in Yorkshire and The Dales, its hard to beat! The majority of the major sights (such as York) are within an hour by car, Dales Bus or train, and a large number, such as Bolton Abbey, Ski... more
