Special Occasions at Westwood Lodge Ilkley Moor

We love it when friends get together for a weekend escape or honeymooners, civil partners and romantics of any age or orientation choose us to spend special time together.

For couples, one of our Five Star apartments is the answer for peace, privacy and great views. For groups of friends, The Old Gallery sleeps 11 and is perfect for get-togethers. Either way, with our welcome basket of real food and a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge, you may not feel the need to venture far. There’s always our leisure area downstairs for the energetic or just to relax in the hot sauna or spa. Or grab a DVD or maybe order one of those Sunday papers to browse through.

Ilkley Moor is literally just outside our gates. Other self-catering places may claim to be on Ilkley Moor but can be many miles away! We’ve over 1000 acres of Open Access land to explore straight outside – on foot, or great routes for cycling (on or off-road), horse riding, climbing or orienteering.

We’re part of the WALKERS WELCOME and CYCLISTS WELCOME schemes, so you’ll know we’ll have things in place for you.

The vibrant town of Ilkley is just a stroll down the hill for great tea rooms and upmarket boutiques. There are some great pubs and restaurants – including the Michelin starred “Box Tree”. Being within walking distance you won’t need to persuade a taxi driver afterwards or feel abandoned miles from anywhere wondering whether your “chauffeur” will remember to get you home to the back of beyond!

For even more lavish shopping – at Harvey Nicks – or for night owls – why not take the train into Leeds and shop all day or club all night. (The last train back is just after 11pm. It’s best to book a taxi in advance to get you back to Ilkley in the early hours of Sunday)

For extra special occasions, why not get us to arrange flowers, chocolates, champagne on ice, or some great local beers to help your stay run smoothly?

New for this year – we are now able to offer a range of genuine health and beauty treatments in your cottage or apartment and genuine Thai massage. See For Grown Ups.

If that isn’t enough, we’ve also introduced a professional car valeting service for those of you wanting to return with your four wheels shining.
