Close to the centre of the old spa town of Ilkley, this lovely property offers a romantic retreat for two with an abundance of walks and cycle trails from the doorstep.

This property is a superb, detached lodge conveniently located next to the owner’s home, while maintaining utmost privacy, on the outskirts of Ilkley. This remarkable property sleeps two people and is the perfect choice for a couple looking for an idyllic escape in the countryside without the need to jump in the car every day.

The splendid location of this lodge means you could enjoy a peaceful stroll along the River Wharfe to Ilkley town centre, less than 1.5 miles away, where you’ll find plenty of characterful shops, pubs, restaurants, and cafes adorning the tree-lined streets. This location is also the starting point of the renowned 84-mile-long 'Dales Way', providing an abundance of picturesque walks and cycle routes.

Once inside this delightful lodge, you’ll find a spacious open-plan living area with large patio doors that lead out onto the balcony and flood the room with natural light. The lounge area has a luxurious and elegant decor, and tasteful pictures and prints adorn the wall. With comfortable sofas to snuggle up on after your outdoor adventures and a Smart TV to watch a movie or catch up on your favourite series, this is relaxation central.

Thoughtfully situated in a bright corner of the room near the patio doors, the dining area is a space you could easily imagine yourself enjoying a board game or making plans for the following day after enjoying an evening meal. The kitchen is suitably stylish with contemporary appliances so you can prepare meals and dine in style. There is also a coffee machine for that all-important hit to start your day.

Walk up a flight of stairs to a bright and spacious king-size bedroom, the perfect place to get a good night’s sleep. The bedroom has two bespoke single sofa beds if you have little ones to bring along, and a skylight. A generous-sized contemporary shower room with a shower is also on this floor.

The patio doors in the living space open out onto a private balcony with outdoor furniture where you could enjoy a glass of wine in the evening while admiring the distant views of the Wharfe Valley. Further seating can also be found in an additional pretty patio area, making this the perfect spot to relax in the sunshine.

Less than 1.5 miles away, Ilkley is set against an impressive backdrop of heather-coated moorland studded with craggy tors throughout the rolling hills. The Wharfe Valley is a treat to explore whether you are a gentle ambler or an experienced hiker. Set off with your camera and unearth The Dales Way, admiring the dramatic backdrop of the Yorkshire Dales National Park or exploring unrivalled beauty spots in the Nidderdale AONB, both within a 20-mile drive. If you prefer to stay close to home, set off and discover Ilkley Moor overlooking the town centre, offering an effortless yet rewarding walking route. Uncover the history of the Cow and Calf rocks or try your hand at scrambling on some of the town’s crags.

There’s no better way to round off an afternoon of adventures than lunch in one of Ilkley’s pretty tearooms. Make time to visit Betty’s, the traditional Victorian-era café, which is a must-visit when spending time in the Yorkshire countryside. Or perhaps save yourself for a more indulgent evening meal, making use of one of Ilkley’s quality restaurants or gastropubs within the town centre.

The neighbouring town of Skipton (9.5 miles) also boasts an eclectic feel and is filled with independent wares and an abundance of quality eateries, well worth a visit. Time your visit with one of the annual festivals such as the Real Food markets, Summer Festival or the Literature Festival and soak up the atmosphere, or simply enjoy a browse around the pretty shops. The town also hosts an annual Sheep Day, honouring the agricultural town’s rich history as a sheep-selling hub.

Bolton Abbey, 6 miles away, is a must for history seekers with its imposing ruins. If you venture further into the Dales, your reward will be pretty towns and villages such as Pateley Bridge (15 miles), or why not plan a visit to majestic Harrogate (16 miles) to appreciate the history and culture.

Perfectly designed and planned holiday accommodation, everything you need for a great holiday stay is there ready for you. Comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean - what more do you need ! Ideally situated for visiting the southern area of the Yorkshire Dales and Leeds is just a twenty minute journey on the train. Will certainly return.
