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.

Last chance to book your Autumn Half-term stay!

The media coverage of the pandemic is concerning us all and we get calls everyday asking for the latest position. Yes, there are areas in the north of England and the Midlands that are seeing big increases in the number of Covid-19 cases (Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham). Numbers vary widely though and are still low locally. Reported new cases in our area (Ilkley Moor and Addingham) in the past 7 days is 7 and a further 18 in Ilkley and Ben Rhydding.  That's out of a population of around 14,000.

If you've not yet booked a stay for half-term, do consider us!  We've put together reductions across all our remaining cottages and apartments. Click here for the best deals! In particular, because we can't accept group bookings, The Old Gallery is (unusually) available and a special rate for up to six people staying.
