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.

Cycle the Tour de Yorkshire 2018!

What a fantastic stage finish we had here on Ilkley Moor!  Thousands lined the route to cheer the cyclists up to The Cow and Calf Rocks and the finish line of this challenging stage.  This was the scene more than an hour before the stage finish!


The caravan procession of sponsors was greeting with big cheers as goodies were handed out!


The famous Cow and Calf Rocks were adorned with Yorkshire flags 

Finally, the riders came storming up the gradient for the first ever climb finish of the Tour de Yorkshire.  The women's event had followed the same route for most of the day and was equally as exciting!
