Ilkley

Westwood Lodge is situated on the very edge of the world famous Ilkley Moor in the ancient West Riding of Yorkshire in England. You are literally on the Moor as soon as you cross the cattle grid at our gates!

Whilst there is little traffic other than the odd passing sheep, deer or pheasant, you’re not going to find yourself ‘in the middle of nowhere’ staying here. Westwood combines a rural location with close proximity to Ilkley town itself (just down the hill) plus all the places – town and country – that you might need to get to.

Yorkshire and The Dales

As a base for sight-seeing in Yorkshire and The Dales, Westwood is hard to beat.

The vast majority of the major sights are within an hour by car, and a large number, such as Bolton Abbey, Skipton, Harewood, Leeds, Harrogate, Brontë Country and the heart of The National Park are within about half-an-hour.

The Coast

A great day out at the seaside is straightforward too! Morecambe, on the west coast, is less that 90 minutes away and Scarborough and Filey, on the east coast, just a little further.
