Welcome to our news page

We're a small family run business. With our girls - Alice and Annie - and our great team, our aim is to send you home feeling relaxed and recharged after your stay.

We're always getting news and comments about Ilkley and Wharfedale - where to go, what to do, where to eat and sometimes where not to eat! So our blog is all about finding a place for all those titbits that could be of interest to guests and folk with a fondness for this beautiful part of The Yorkshire Dales.

Do contribute, or better still, come and stay! Visit our website - click here If you have difficulty in posting a comment, just e-mail us at welcome@ilkleymoorcottages.co.uk and we'll sort things out.

Snow's Going...

The snow is melting but it really has been a fab white Christmas. We spent most of Christmas Day sledging outside the gates on the road down from the top of Ilkley Moor. Great stuff!

Although we do have snow, the main roads through Wharfedale are all clear (as at 0930 Tuesday 22nd December) and guests should be able to reach us without undue problem. Trains are largely running to schedule and the airport is open.
