Information for Grown-ups
We know many of you come to Westwood Lodge to re-charge your batteries and also to kick start a healthier way of life after you return home!
Unfortunately, our small shared fitness facility here is having to remain closed due to pandemic restrictions. There is no way we can operate it safely due to the limited space in The Cellars.
However, we’re on the very edge of Ilkley Moor; over 1000 acres of Open Access Land for walking, running and a permanent orienteering course, plus bridleways for horse riding, mountain biking and even areas suitable for other sports such as rock climbing.
Ilkley grew in Victorian times as an up-market spa town and we’re pleased that it remains concerned today for the health and well-being of our guests at Westwood Lodge Ilkley Moor.
Enjoy your stay with us!
There are a selection of on and off-road runs to choose from as well as a permanent Orienteering course. To print off a map click here.
This is a great group or family activity!
We have a bike shed (please bring your own bike padlock) and washing facilities. There is an excellent choice of circular on and off road routes starting from our door. Dave Ferguson (01756 795367) lives locally, runs a bike shop in Skipton and will gladly drop off bikes here to hire bikes. Wheelbase in Ilkley and Chevin Cycles in Otley are both good for spare parts and servicing.
The Cow and Calf Rocks and Rocky Valley are both popular with experienced climbers.
