Meet Tim and Paula

We took on Westwood Lodge as a project which happened to coincide with the birth of our first daughter in 1998.  With a public service background (Tim in the rail industry and Paula in nutrition & health) we were ready to put our heart and soul into a small business of our own.

We’ve had a few reincarnations from conference centre, to B&B, to house-party venue to self-catering holiday properties and large group events. But, roll on 25 years, and our latest switch to serviced lets and longer term stays forced by the covid pandemic seems to have been a very successful move. We love Westwood Lodge and are very proud of what we’ve achieved here.

Ilkley’s a truly wonderful place to live – voted by the Sunday Times in 2022 as the best place in the UK – and although our two daughters have now moved away we know they’re always thrilled to call Ilkley their home.
