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 Temporary Local Restrictions - 31st July 2020

You will have heard that the Government has introduced local lockdown restrictions across various parts of northern England.  Although the number of cases of Covid-19 in the Ilkley area is reported to be extremely low, we are part of Bradford District and, as a result, have been included as one of the areas. 

 The main implications for us here at Westwood Lodge appear to be:-

  • We are open. Holidays and other stays can continue as booked, but you must avoid socialising with other people indoors
  • You can still go to restaurants, cafes, pubs, etc, but only with members of your own household. When there, you should avoid social interaction with others 
  • You should not visit someone’s home or garden or invite them to your accommodation here.  This is regardless of whether they live in the affected area
  • Our indoor shared facilities (gym, sauna, hot tub) must remain closed

We only know what we have heard on the radio and online. The official guidance is being updated and can be found here.
