The Old Gallery Cottage (4 bedrooms, plus office)
Westwood Lodge Apartments (1,2 or 3 bedrooms)
Only longer stays are now possible (months rather than weeks) and your extended stay booking will only be confirmed about a month before arrival. This is because everyone is staying on a rolling 28 day basis and we won’t know when guests are leaving us until around 28 days before they do.
All stays will be at a heavily reduced rates but won’t include things like mid-stay housekeeping services or the shared leisure facilities. Accommodation will be fully furnished and prepared to the highest “We’re Good To Go” standards with all essentials included (pots, pans, cutlery etc). Our stays this year are aimed at people needing to be in Ilkley for an extended period – maybe a job move, moving house or having major work done at home.
So, how does it work?
Is bedding provided? We will make up all the beds and leave a set of towels, t-towels etc. You may wish to being your own spare bedding and more towels
What about bills? Your bills will be included in the one price – heating, electric, Freesat (around 175 channels) with iPlayer and Netflix compatible. You will not have to register for Council Tax and there will be no other fees, deposits etc.
What about Covid? We have acquired the Industry Standard mark “We’re Good to Go” from Visit England for our cleaning protocols and social distancing measures. You must observe all current national and local restrictions. The shared leisure facilities here won’t be re-opening.
Can we make a group booking? Sorry, no; The Main House is unavailable and you can’t book multiple properties.
What about pets? A well behaved dog is allowed to stay in one of our cottages, but not in the apartments. Other pets (hamsters, goldfish etc) are by advance arrangement. We’re sorry but we don’t accept cats.
What is the minimum/ maximum stay and notice period? 28/ 180 nights. We ask for you to pay four-weekly in advance of each four-weekly period and give us four weeks notice of leaving or wishing to extend your stay (subject to availability).
How much? Our longer lets are much cheaper than holiday stays, because our costs are lower. If you’re planning a lengthy stay, our prices may initially appear more expensive than an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. Remember though, that all your costs are included with us. You won’t be tied to a 6 or 12 month fixed contract and won’t have to sign-up with the electric, water, gas and telephone companies etc. We still have to charge VAT during the summer (currently 5% and shown in our prices).
How far ahead can I book? As we won’t know when current guests are leaving until 28 days before they do, we are only able to confirm stays around 28 days ahead of arrival.
The Main House is currently unavailable but The Old Gallery, three courtyard cottages and our four apartments are here for longer lets.
Your accommodation will be prepared to our usual high standards ready for your stay. Note that extras (cake, wine) that used to come with our full-priced holiday stays are not included with reduced rate longer lets.
