Ilkley's only Five Star and Four Star Gold Award self-catering historic country house, cottages and apartments.
Ilkley Moor Cottages at Westwood Lodge, is situated on the very edge of the world famous Ilkley Moor (in Wharfedale, Yorkshire) and just ten minutes walk into Ilkley spa town.
The location is ideal for those wishing to leave the car at home, or at least not driving much whilst on holiday. Ilkley enjoys a fantastic train service plus inexpensive bus services to a good range of visitor destinations.
Great location, great venue for a large party if people with ample space. Great welcome with tea, coffee and cake left by the owner. Tim was on hand for any problems and responded very quickly to resolve any issues. All in all a great venue, good value for money...
Orchard Cottage is a great base for exploring Wharfedale and surrounding countryside, and a lovely welcoming place to return to after a tramp across the moors. It's spacious, but cosy and well equipped for eating in, although the great range of restaurants just a stroll down the hill (albeit a rather steep one) in Ilkley are very tempting. Transport links are excellent: we hardly used our car, taking the bus to Skipton and Otley and the train to Leeds. We really enjoyed our second stay here and would certainly come again.
Beautiful house and gardens. Children 11,12,14 enjoyed feeding Tilly the pig. Excellent spot for walking, less than 5 mins to the moors. 10mins walk into Ilkley with option of getting the bus back up the hill. Very friendly staff who had provided a ‘welcome tray’ with fresh Victoria sandwich cake. Even our dog had some treats left for him. Thankyou
It’s not very often you can say that your accommodation was 100% what you wanted, right? Well, we can!
Our 4 night stay at The Moorview, Westwood Lodge Ilkley was perfect for us for the following reasons;
• Comfortable, clean, quiet & welcoming
• Well equipped, everything worked
• Perfect location, close (within walking distance) but far enough away from town centre and in close proximity to local walks around Ilkley moor and nearby towns.
• Private off road & secure parking
Would highly recommend this accommodation for anyone planning a visit to Ilkley or nearby.
We have stayed at this accommodation four times now. The first time was at Westwood Lodge and the following times have been at Applebarn cottage. Our party comprises myself, husband and grandchildren. This accommodation is ideal.
Ilkley is a good centre for visiting nearby attractions for the children, and the town itself is minutes away from the extremely comfortable accommodation.
We had good weather for the most part and the odd rainy period didn't spoil our enjoyment - good to have comfortable base to go back to!
