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.

Haglofs Adventure Series Open 5 in Ilkley this weekend!


The 2013/14 Haglofs Open 5 series kicks off in the picturesque Victorian spa town of Ilkley in West Yorkshire.
This is the first time Open Adventure has visited this corner of the Yorkshire Dales and veteran Open 5 competitor Sue Booth is hoping to show you the delights that Ilkely and the surrounding hills have to offer.
Lying on the River Wharfe in Wharfedale, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, Ilkley is the official starting point of the Dales Way. Famous for Betty's Tea Rooms, the Cow and Calf rocks and the beautiful Ilkley Moor - the subject of the notorious Yorkshire anthem "On Ilkla Moor Baht 'at".

Tim and Paula are doing it and there's still time to sign up! See you there!
