Leave the car at home
Our gates open directly onto Ilkley Moor, yet the centre of Ilkley is just a 10 minute walk away. There are four trains every hour throughout the day from Leeds and Bradford. This area is renowned for its extensive, efficient and subsidised bus and rail services.

Ilkley Town
Boasting high class shops, elegant tea rooms and a wide selection of great pubs and restaurants (including Michelin starred). Other attractions include a superb outdoor lido (from May to September), floodlit tennis courts, playground and skateboard park.

Ilkley Moor
Westwood Lodge is situated on the very edge of the world famous Ilkley Moor with over 1000 acres of Open Access moorland outside our gates for you to enjoy. It’s great country for walking, climbing, horse riding and mountain biking. It’s no surprise that the official anthem of Yorkshire is the song “On Ilkley Moor Bah’t ‘at”.

Yorkshire attractions
There are four local golf courses, fly fishing in the Wharfe, horse riding stables and more gardens, animal farms, steam railways and other attractions than could be visited in a week! The heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Brontë Country are all nearby, as are the locations used to film Emmerdale, taking you through historic villages with country pubs, local crafts and a traditional friendly welcome.

All mod cons
All of our accommodation is fully equipped for a stress-free stay, with washing machine/dryer*, dishwasher, microwave, freezer and full-sized fan oven. Each has a Bluetooth stereo, Virgin Media multi-channel cable television, radio and catch-up services, free SuperHub wi-fi and DVD player.  (*Apartments have a shred laundry room)

Child friendly
We understand the importance of safety, comfort and fun, so provide quality cots, high chairs, stair gates and boxes of toys. Each cottage also has a ground floor toilet. Our outdoor play area includes a two storey Wendy House, trampoline and animal corner.

Dog friendly accommodation
We love dogs and have one ourselves! Up to three well behaved dogs are welcome in The Main House and two in The Old Gallery and each of the cottages (Coach House, Applebarn and Orchard Cottages). See individual accommodation pages.

Time to relax
For the grown-ups we have a small, private leisure facility open daily, with a workout room, hot tub, sauna and sunbed.
