For Children


For a traditional cottage holiday or short break, our four Grade II Listed Historic Cottages are the answer. Each comes fully equipped (“better than my home” is a typical comment!). As we have a young family ourselves, we understand the importance of quality cots, high chairs, stair gates and boxes of toys. Each cottage also has a ground floor toilet and bathroom.

Our outdoor play area includes swings, climbing frame and a two storey Wendy House in the extensive enclosed gardens. Games of football may be interrupted by Pudding dog wanting to join in or by one of our pet hens deciding to lay an egg.

Don’t worry if clothes get a bit muddy – each cottage has a washing machine and dryer with powder included!

The beauty of Ilkley and Wharfedale is the sheer variety of things to do – see Local Area pages. Your children should never be bored with the choice of swimming pools, the lido, the park, the play equipment, the river, skateboarding, orienteering, the maze, the toy museum, great cafes, tea rooms and child-friendly pubs etc. etc.
