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.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) - LATEST UPDATE


We can only offer accommodation to key workers and anyone else required to stay in Ilkley for essential reasons, but who’s regular home is not here or which is unavailable. Our accommodation is classed as “dwelling houses” which means each cottage/ apartment is completely self-contained (bathroom, kitchen, own washing machine/dryer, hot water system etc). We can offer stays of several weeks. All guests must follow Government “at home” directives. We cannot offer holidays or other non-essential stays at this time.

Please email or text 07841 697186 for urgent enquiries.

We will be contacting all guests who had booked to stay with us in the next few weeks regarding options. Please bear with us as we had over 150 forward bookings.

We are now taking bookings for summer and autumn 2020.  Many dates are getting reserved. If Coronavirus prevents us from being open, we will refund your stay - so book your UK holiday with confidence!
