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.

Ilkley Literature Festival Short Break Accommodation (better than hotels, guest houses or B&B)

LATEST from Westwood Lodge, Ilkley Moor - we've still got accommodation availability for key Festival dates.  If you're coming to the Ilkley Literature Festival (4th to 20th October 2013), we've now reduced the prices of most remaining dates too!  We are Ilkley's ONLY Five Star and Four Star Gold Award self-catering properties and we are within walking distance of ALL Ilkley Literature Festival key venues.    

3-night short breaks for two from just £269, when booked online! Click here for current availability and prices.

Are the big hotels (often miles away!) just too impersonal?  Will a B and B (usually without the breakfast bit these days!) not hit your spot?  How about a short break in one of our FIVE STAR apartments, either on your own or with your significant other? 

Or why not bring the family for a few days in the Dales and book one of our Four Star Gold Award cottages?  

There are still some great Festival tickets to be had, so book soon!  Click here to go straight to the Festival!
