We can only currently offer accommodation to key workers and anyone else required to stay in Ilkley for essential reasons, but who’s regular home is not here or which is unavailable. Our accommodation is classed as “dwelling houses” which means each cottage/ apartment is completely self-contained (bathroom, kitchen, own washing machine/dryer, hot water system etc). We can offer stays of several weeks. All guests must follow Government “at home” directives. We cannot offer holidays or other non-essential stays at this time.
