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 lovely lodge-style property is conveniently located next to the owner’s home on the outskirts of Ilkley. From the lodge, you can enjoy a peaceful stroll along the River Wharfe to the town centre where you’ll find plenty of characterful shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés adorning the tree-lined streets. The train station is a short walk away with trains into Ilkley, Leeds and Bradford. Enjoy the views from the property across the Wharfe Valley, nestled at the foot of Ilkley Moor and Cow and Calf rocks, offering some of the most spectacular and unspoilt scenery. This location is also the starting point of the renowned 84-miles-long 'Dales Way', providing an abundance of picturesque walks and cycle routes. Nearby Bolton Abbey (7 miles) is one of the region's most scenic areas, and the priory ruins are well worth a visit.

This tastefully decorated lodge offers a spacious, open-plan living space with large patio doors leading out to the balcony that flood the room with light. The lounge area is adorned with comfortable sofas and a Smart TV so you can watch a movie or catch up on your favourite series. Rustle up a home-cooked meal in the stylish kitchen area, equipped with an electric double oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and Nespresso coffee machine. A wooden dining table sits in the corner of the room that comfortably seats four, providing the ideal place to enjoy a board game in the evening after a meal. A flight of stairs leads up to a bright and spacious king-size bedroom, the perfect place to get a good night’s sleep. There are also two bespoke single sofa beds for those who have little ones with them. Completing the interior of the property is a contemporary shower room with a shower and WC.

Lovely cottage, stylish and comfortable - perfect for a couple like us. Ilkley great for shops and eating etc. - 20 mins walk, 40 mins by pretty river walk. Steep walk to the moor for various rambles (caf with decent cappuccinos etc.). Local Wheatley Arms does a good fish 'n chips! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A really nice property, well kitted out and less than two minute walk to the train station with surprisingly frequent trains into town (about 2 return) and further afield.

We enjoyed staying at the lodge. Its very nicely laid out, equipped and furnished and has pleasant views in a quiet neighbourhood on the outskirts of Ilkley. The extra touches were appreciated and the owner came round and checked a couple of times that we were comfortable. Wed be very happy to stay again when in the area.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
