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 2016

It's that time if year again, as the exciting programme for this year's Literature Festival has been launched. Big names this year include Ken Clarke, Nick Clegg, Alastair Campbell, Alan Titchmarsh and Sian Williams, plus Sir Tony Robinson Jenni Murray and John Simpson. There is also a fabulous fringe festival as well as lots of children's events. 

Tickets go on sale on Tuesday 30th August. Headline events tend to sell out very quickly! Further details can be found at www.ilkleyliteraturefestival.org.uk 

If you're unsure about whether you'll be able to secure tickets, you may book your stay with us on Monday the 29th. Exceptionally, we will hold your booking provisionally for 24 hours until you've applied on Tuesday 30th. If you're not successful, we will refund your payment.
