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.

Elderly Ladies Take Ilkley By Storm!

What we had thought had been a quiet group of young women staying in The Old Gallery - suddenly appeared on the doorstep, transformed into a much older looking set!  They were dressed in fantastic outfits and heading down into town with twin set and pearls and handbags ready!  Whether our girls were going to be content with half of milk stout is very doubtful though!  As our photo shows, they attracted more than a few passing glances! 
"We can't thank you enough for making the weekend such a memorable one. Your hospitality is fantastic, and the wine, cake and other goodies just added the final touches to our cottage stay. We thoroughly enjoyed winding down in the hot tub and the views from the roof terrace are amazing. We will definitely be recommending Westwood Lodge to all our other friends, and hopefully it won't be too long before we meet again. Thanks a million!"  (Debra)
