Ilkley's only Five Star and Four Star Gold Award self-catering historic country house, cottages and apartments.
Ilkley Moor Cottages at Westwood Lodge, is situated on the very edge of the world famous Ilkley Moor (in Wharfedale, Yorkshire) and just ten minutes walk into Ilkley spa town.
The location is ideal for those wishing to leave the car at home, or at least not driving much whilst on holiday. Ilkley enjoys a fantastic train service plus inexpensive bus services to a good range of visitor destinations.
We are a family of 12 aged from 10 to 80. We stayed in the main house and just loved it. the venue is great , so convenient for sightseeing , walking , relaxing, The house is well appointed, spacious and comfortable.
We have stayed at Westwood Lodge about 8 times, been in every cottage at least once, and two of the apartments and it never disappoints. Our favorite is Applebarn cottage since it easily accommodates us on our annual vacation to Ilkley to visit family and friends. All the cottages offer outdoor areas to enjoy (weather permitting)!
Looking forward to next year.
We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay with you, this time in the cottage next door to where we stayed in the Autumn. We were very comfortable, lovely and warm in the evenings and catered for ourselves happily in the well equipped kitchen. This time we discovered the roof garden’s impressive views and we fed Tilly on our table scraps, but wish we had known about the jacuzzi and fitness facilities before we left our respective homes.
Our hosts were tremendously welcoming, and, again, we very much appreciated the delicious cake left by Paula.
We had a lovely stay and even the weather blesse...more
We loved the apartment with views of Ilkley Moor and yet only a short stroll down to town. Justine made us feel really welcome when we arrived and a freshly baked cake awaited. It was quiet and comfortable and had everything we needed. Views from the roof terrace were wonderful.
Beautiful house and gardens. Children 11,12,14 enjoyed feeding Tilly the pig. Excellent spot for walking, less than 5 mins to the moors. 10mins walk into Ilkley with option of getting the bus back up the hill. Very friendly staff who had provided a ‘welcome tray’ with fresh Victoria sandwich cake. Even our dog had some treats left for him. Thankyou
We have stayed in these apartments before and have always found them peaceful and restful. The location is great and the apartments are very well appointed as befits their 5 star rating but felt this time maybe some redecoration required. This in no way detracted from our stay. Ilkley itself is lovely, great place for eating out and a great base for exploring this part of the country.
Applebarn Cottage is a very comfortable 3 bedroom accommodation. The kitchen is very well appointed, and the main bedroom has an en suite. The other two rooms share a large bathroom. The lounge is very large and comfortable.
Westwood Lodge is located a little bit out of the centre of Ilkley, up a hill. It is about 15 minutes walk DOWN the hill and 25 minutes back UP. Car parking for the cottages is a little tight if you have a large car.
You get a very warm welcome from the owners on arrival, and there is a sponge cake waiting for you.
