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.

Yet further changes

All parts of Bradford District (which includes Ilkley), may not socialise with other people outside of their own households or support bubble in private homes and gardens. Some wards (such as Ilkley) had been exempt from restrictions on gatherings introduced at the start of August, but these wards are now also subject to the ban.

Pubs and restaurants are now required to close at 10pm. You MAY still meet other people (up to 6) in public places, such as pubs (inside and out!)

This is the SIXTH different regime we've had to operate under since the beginning of July.  We are all doing our best to stop the spread of Covid-19 but the number of community cases in Ilkley remains relatively low.
