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.
The Westwood Lodge main house was absolutely ideal for getting my family together (9 adults and 4 children under 4) with large rooms and a good quantity of bathrooms. The kitchen was the perfect size for a family meal and it was very well stocked with everything we needed. The two dishwashers were *really* helpful in staying on top of the endless washing up created and the washer and dryer helped with the kids clothes.
Given the size and age of the house we were very pleased that it was quite child friendly and were happy that we didn't need to watch them like hawks in fear of breaking any...more
Beautiful Cottage. Spacious and comfortable. Home from home with everything you needed. Beds comfortable. Small enclosed garden for our dogs. Walking straight out onto the Moor. Walking distance to and from the town and pubs. Ilkley was a bigger town than we had realized with some different shops.
Stayed with extended family including two toddlers. Excellent accommodation close to Ilkley high street and easy access to the moor. The children loved seeing the chickens and pig in the gardens and the toy box the owners left in the accommodation was a really nice touch. Thanks very much for a great stay!
We have stayed at Westwood Lodge many times over the years, as we have flown back to the UK from Canada. It is lovely place to come back to, warm, friendly and reasonably priced for 5 people. You can not beat the countryside.
I think we have stayed in every property at Westwood Lodge now and Glenmoor probably has the best views. On a wet, grey weekend in November is was our cosy haven after exploring Ilkley and Wharfedale. As ever Tim and the team where great hosts, available when needed but the rest of the time you feel suitably independent. We will return many more times I hope.
