Ten Places to Stay Near Country Shows by Kate Simon

"On the edge of Ilkley Moor sits a cluster of luxury cottages and apartments with a historic house at its heart. It’s a charming stopover for the Great Yorkshire Show, 9-11 July, in Harrogate, an agricultural event that keeps up with the times, laying on fashion shows and cookery demonstrations alongside the usual parade of fine farm animals."

We love you Westwood! Our 3rd visit and the 3rd property we tried. Loved them all. Kids meet other kids - hurrah. Everything is well thought through and well managed. We love the moors, the pig, the owner's dog, the trampoline and Ilkley. See you again soon.

I brought a group of 8 artists from Colorado, USA to stay at The Old Gallery at Ilkley Moor Cottages. The accommodation was as described and so much more. We were comfortable, well cared for and guests had plenty of places to relax, talk, eat and make art. We definitely recommend Westwood Cottages for your next holiday and we hope to return.

The Moorview - due to family issues, I had to find somewhere to stay in Ilkley and having stayed at Westwood Lodge previously, it was my first port of call. Tim, Paula and Justine couldn't have been more helpful and came to my rescue. Every apartment is tastefully decorated, homely and kept spotless by the team! I can highly recommend staying at Westwood Lodge.

The cottage was a great size for 5 adults with all the amenities we needed. The cake on arrival was a lovely extra. We had a really fun weekend and could use the cottage to relax whilst the weather was poor and also make the most of the good local walks to the Cow and Calf when the weather improved. Thanks!

We had a wonderful few days in Ilkley staying at Westwood Lodge in Coach House Cottage. My daughter loved feeding food scraps to the pig and the wendy house....even in the snow! The location of the cottage at the foot of ilkley moor makes for great walks and it's a 10 minutes stroll down the hill into town where there are lots of restaurant options. This is our second stay at Westwood Lodge and won't be our last! The home made cake on arrival is such a lovely touch and so tasty...I remember the cake from our first stay so was delighted they are still doing this. Thanks for a great stay!

The Main House - the host Tim was very welcoming and informative of things to do around the area, his wife had made 2 beautiful cakes for our warm arrival. It was perfect from beginning to end. It is a beautiful old well decorated and highly maintained home. There was everything you’d need from a sandwich to an a la cartè meal.

Everything thought of and provided. We were very warmly welcomed by Justine who even collected us from the railway station as we arrived by train. Everything was spotlessly clean and very well presented. Everything possible had been provided and was in perfect condition. Jacuzzi, sauna and honesty shop was very welcome and useful. Current bus timetables were available as were a great collection of books, dvds and games. Another big plus for us was the use of (4} bicycles that were all well maintained with tools, helmets and locks also provided. This is truly accommodation provided by people who really care.

Family weekend birthday celebration. From the initial booking to the time we left I was sent easy to follow instructions and lots of helpful information. A warm welcome met us on arrival at the property. The property itself was a perfect size for our family group of 8 adults and had beds to accommodate a couple more people.
The house was perfect for us and we loved the open plan living space which meant nobody was left alone whilst cooking.
The property was lovely and warm, clean and well equipped with everything from kitchen equipment to board games, dvds and books.
A bonus was the hot tub, sauna and gym in the cellar which was shared by all the properties on site.
Dogs are welcome and there were plenty of walks straight outside the door.
We only stayed for a weekend but I would love to turn for a longer break.

A home from home! My husband and I have now stayed many times at Moorview. For a one bedroom apartment it is very spacious and comfortable. It is very well appointed and the owners have thought of everything for their guests' convenience. They are constantly "on call" and nothing is too much trouble for them.
The views from the windows are magnificent, and there is easy access to walk out into the open country side form the door, and very easy access to the town of Ilkley.
Once again the weather was kind to us, but even if it is not there is so much to do in the local area.

Lovely long weekend in lovely cottage next to Ilkley Moor. From my arrival onwards your lovely staff could not do enough to welcome me. Delicious cake was an unexpected but much appreciated surprise, with the tea & coffee tray, and milk in the fridge. We brought detergents, dishcloths, extra tea towels, as we usually need these in holiday lets, but they went back in the bag, as all were supplied. Despite some bitterly cold weather we stayed warm and cosy once we had drawn the curtains and put the fire on, although the kitchen area was always warm. We loved the gardens and visited the pigs and chickens, which we found exciting (even though we are six ladies in our sixties!) The beds were very comfortable, the duvets and pillows sumptuous and the bathroom area clean and luxurious. We had a lovely time.

We were so impressed we have booked to return in May, hoping for balmier, less bracing weather!

Back on business! We are probably quite unusual in that we use Westwood Lodge for our business trips to this region as a welcome alternative to the many bland corporate hotels on offer in the nearby cities. It gives us a chance to see our old friends and family in the Ilkley region, take a morning run on the beautiful Ilkley Moor (phew, not for the faint-hearted), enjoy the wide range of restaurants, cafes and pubs in the town and cook for ourselves in a really well-stocked kitchen. On that point it's really helpful that pretty much everything is provide - general linen obviously but also kitchen towels, cloths, washing up liquid, tea, coffee and a cake...oh the cakes wonderful! It makes a difference and a surprising number of holiday properties just provide the bear minimum.

The other real positive is the efficient and friendly communication from the owners and their colleagues. Instant confirmation online, a receipt, a reminder of key details just before you arrive and usually a welcome in person - Justine was there to see us in and was her usual friendly and efficient self. Other correspondents have listed the comfy and cosy atmosphere of the cottages and this is a big plus.

Well done to the Westwood team for providing something a little different in these times of stiff competition.

Return to Westwood Lodge. As former residents of Ilkley, our visiting friends and relations really enjoyed staying at Westwood Lodge. Having moved away from the town some 3 years ago, we now look forward to our return visits, and always hope that we are able to stay in one of the lovely cottages at Westwood Lodge. We were fortunate enough to have the use of The Old Gallery recently, which was a joy, especially as it is set up so well for anybody with a disability.

Excellent location to celebrate my 60th Birthday
I am a Londoner born and bred who fell in love with Yorkshire when I had the privilege of working for a Leeds based company 15 years ago. I met some incredible people during that period one of which I am still very close friends with and happens to live in Ilkley. It wasn't therefore a difficult decision to spend my weekend away to celebrate my 60th birthday in this beautiful part of the country. We hired The Old Gallery for three nights and it was just perfect. I arranged for a local company to provide dinner for us on the Saturday night which allowed the 10 of us to sit round sipping wine and chatting to the early hours. Once the food had been eaten we were all able to sit in the large lounge area where everyone was able sit and continue the fun. The Old Gallery is very well equipped it has everything you could need for a long or short stay.

Location, location, location - The flat is cosy and warm. Customer service was excellent and they dealt with our personal quirks admirably, eg I like to sleep in a fridge (according to my husband!), so the duvet was changed for a lighter version. So nice to have the option. We stayed in The Wells but we viewed The Glenmoor which looked beautiful; I think we may book that next time.

What a fabulous place to stay in Ilkley right across road from Moor and in walking distance to great little bar "Friends of Ham"! There was 10 of us and we had plenty of room without getting on top of each other. Lots of hot water and good showers and unusually for a rented holiday place lots of pots pans and crockery - just need better oven gloves! Cooked wonderful roast for 11 in the double range cooker. Would definitely recommend and oils book again thanks Tim and co. Oh and the Victoria sponge was fab and a favourite of mine!

The Main House has so much space and different areas, perfect for a hen party. We weren't all on top of each other but the communal rooms were plenty big enough and so comfortable. Massive dining room and the roof terrace is huge and has spectacular views. The house is furnished to a high standard and had everything we could ever need. We spent most of the time enjoying the house but did venture out into Ilkley one afternoon, a pleasant 15 min walk. It is the perfect venue for a party or gathering with friends and family, would highly recommend!

Great place we will hopefully be back.

The Glenmoor apartment was well appointed and very comfortable. The furnishings felt luxurious and everything we could need was provided (including bath robes). We were warmly welcomed by Justine with a delicious cake. What a lovely start!! The property is situated high up a hill out of Ilkley town in beautiful moor surroundings. For guests with reduced mobility, the location of the property and the apartment (at the top of the house) may be problematic but for our family, it was fine and being high up meant that the views were superb. Our children particularly enjoyed the trampoline, chickens and pigs, as well as the good selection of DVDs. We were in Ilkley to visit our friends who live very nearby so this was a good location for us. It also meant that we spent a lot of time out of the apartment, so probably didn't take as much advantage of the beautiful Westwood Lodge Gardens as many guests would.

Thanks for having us - We had a lovely time.

Great find! Amazing information pack sent at time of booking, family business. Excellent for families, our flat was up a lot of steps so might try and book a cottage next time but flat very good size once up there and very well decorated. Some friendly pigs and chickens in the garden area and the trampoline and wendy house very popular with our 20month old. Box of toys, high chair and travel cot supplied free of charge. Property within walking distance of town centre but we hadn't realised at time of booking quite how far up the hill it was to get back again..possibly less of an issue minus a toddler! Kitchen had all the bits needed including a dishwasher and towels and bathrobes also supplied. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try the gym facilities but nice to have as an option.
All in all excellent base for exploring and had everything we needed, will hopefully be back again.

Everything provided in comfortable and historic Ilkley self catering accommodation.

We enjoyed the location, quality and services provide in this converted stone mansion and outbuildings. It was a relief to have safe play areas and animals that the children could enjoy, without constant supervision. In addition the owners provided a welcome pack and little essentials that are very useful, like salt and pepper, tea towels and washing-up liquid!

You can walk to Ilkley on pleasant trails in 15 minutes (uphill return though). Buses also take you to and from town if you need it. There are rambles from the door, and many local excursions and places of interest in the Dales around Ilkley.

Love Orchard Cottage. This was our first visit to Ilkley and because I am very fussy about accommodation I spent quite some time reading reviews. Orchard Cottage did not disappoint us. It is lovely with loads of character, in beautiful location close to moor and close to the town with all it's amenities at the same time. It was very clean and tidy, with fluffy white towels. Showers have got excellent water pressure, beds are very comfortable and it is very quiet there.
Sitting room is spacious with door leading to small garden and kitchen has got everything you need for short/long stay. Not doing much baking myself, I did appreciate lovely light sponge cake. Thanks a lot.
We loved cottage so much that we are going to plan another visit.

What an excellent place! Great facilities, great comfort, friendly staff. The fact that it is situated on top of a steep hill has its obvious advantages (the views are stunning) but it wasn't encouraging to walk to and from Ilkley (especially if you fancied a drink). It has many commodities indoors in case you weren't going out and my daughter absolutely loved the animals and the toys available. A real gem to return to.

A luxurious treat! We used Westwood Lodge as the gathering point for family and friends coming from Australia for our wedding. We could not have hoped for a more perfect experience. It's both homely and luxurious at the same time, has enough space for multiple family groups to co-exist, and shows Yorkshire off superbly.
The hosts are exceedingly helpful but inobtrusive. Everything was spotlessly clean and tidy, an impressive feat given the size of the house.

It has everything we needed, from preparing dinner for 20, to hosting lazy prolonged breakfast, to baking wedding cakes and getting dressed for a wedding. The kids couldn't decide whether to play games, dress-ups, visit the animals or just spend hours sliding down the massive staircase!

The 10 year reunion is already being planned!!

Four days in Applebarn Cottage. We enjoyed a really nice short stay here in Ilkley. The cottage at Westwood Lodge was really characterful and we had a warm welcome. The walking from the doorstep, the grounds, and the pigs, chickens would make this a good place for a family break. The hot weather made for great walking along the beautiful Wharfe Valley at Bolton Abbey and Burnsall.

An excellent weekend had by all. From start to finish the weekend was a blast! We were greeted by the lovely Justine who told us all we needed to know about the house and then were left to explore the bedrooms etc. We headed straight up to the roof terrace with some Prosecco and enjoyed what was left of the evening sunshine. Graham (artful hen) joined us on Friday evening for a couple of hours of fun - we would highly recommend this activity! On Saturday morning we had time to recover from our hang overs in the hot tub and had a nice walk into Ilkley to blow the cobwebs off before a lovely afternoon tea in the huge dining room which got all 18 of us ladies together. We ate at Piccolinos on Saturday evening and sampled some drinks at a few of the lovely bars in Ilkley.

Sunday was a day to recover and relax, enjoying the house, gardens and facilities. And no one wanted to leave on Monday morning - a weekend definitely isn't long enough at this amazing house. The house was fantastic, just what we wanted and the area was perfect for a girly weekend away. We met Tim and Justine who were so pleasant and helpful - we really couldn't have asked for anything more and will definitely be returning.

Wonderful and relaxing stay - My partner and I really enjoyed our stay at Westwood Lodge from the moment we arrived and it felt like home to us. We stayed in The Wells apartment which is listed as the smallest yet we found it had ample space for our needs over our two week stay The apartment and grounds were well kept and clean and well equipped. The apartment is nicely furnished with a small but efficient kitchen and eating area. the bedroom is a good size and we found the bed to be clean and comfy. The bathroom has a wonderful Victorian style bathtub that was great after a long walk on the moors. It is a private and quiet place located on the doorstep of the moors yet only a short walk into town. the owners Tim and Paula provide lots of local Information about Ilkley and nearby attractions and are available if needed to ask questions etc. The roof top patio is lovely and provides amazing views. We did not use the fitness and hot tub area. The owners really put a lot of effort into providing great accommodations, this is evident in not only the quality of the accommodations but also In the small touches that you don't see in most paces like the wee shop in case you forgot to pick up something or the bikes available if needed. We are well travelled across the world and Westwood lodge is now a favourite of ours. We will definitely return!

Everything we could wish for! Ilkley is my home town, so I am always ready to have a wonderful time having lived overseas for many years. The cottages at Westwood Lodge are ideal for families in particular. We stay there when our adult kids come to join us from London and really enjoy having the chance to cook, eat together and talk, which is not so easy when staying in a hotel.

The only problem now is that I can't decide which of the cottages I like best. They are all lovely.

Thank you for a very happy and pleasant stay at The Old Gallery. You provided us with everything we could need right down to great comfy beds. The family had a lovely birthday celebration .We had a very busy time climbing the moors behind, following the road race and watching the fantastic carnival parade. We also visited the pottery painting shop for our personal souvenirs. the toy museum and the fairground. We ate at Bistro Pierre, Piccolino, Pizza Express as well as stopping off for drinks and coffees. We had a carry out curry from Seemas and various hot dogs and beefburgers at outdoor events. Birthday cake baked locally was enjoyed by all. Everywhere we went everyone was helpful and friendly and the only drawback for us the grandparents was that at the end of a busy day the hill back up became a mountain to climb and we did have to concede defeat just on one occasion and take a taxi. That said we would readily return to the peace and tranquillity and the beautiful surroundings. There are plenty of taxis!

The Moorview Apartment has recently been redecorated; there is a new sofa and very attractive new lighting. Although it was the beginning of March we had snow and freezing winds so we really appreciated having a warm and cosy place to stay. Top marks for the comfy bed and super warm duvet and also for the much appreciated (and unasked for) late night text from Tim saying that we could take our time checking out the following morning.

The Big House - suitable for adults, children and dogs too! The Main House was great for our large family friends get together for new year. We were all pleasantly surprised how well equipped the house was for a large group especially in the kitchen &dining room. The living space , again great as giving different sitting areas (one with no TV) suited us fine . The owner had also made the effort to dress the house for Christmas which made it very homely . The children loved the pigs and chickens and also the super equipped toy box and dressing up box.

A few points that could be improved on .. Some of the sofas could do with replacing as they are not very comfortable and some of our friends who slept on the first floor said the mattresses were very hard (neither of these points spoiled our stay). All in all we had a great time and The Main House surpassed our expectations, so thank you and YES we would recommend the house to our friends. (Note from Tim - owner - we have sofa replacements in hand. The main mattresses on the first floor are in fact NEW and top quality! Most guests prefer firmer rather than soggy mattresses, but it is a matter of personal preference).

The position was also good as it was easy to step outside and go walking on the moor or just 10 mins walk downhill to Ilkley for cafés, shops etc

Excellent new year break! We had a lovely relaxing break at Westwood Lodge. There was even a Christmas tree in the apartment! Really enjoyed the spa and had it to ourselves on both occasions we used it. I don't think you have forgotten to provide anything and the sponge cake was gorgeous. Thank you

We had an excellent stay over Christmas 2014. The house was perfect for an extended family get together. We were very comfortable. Excellent wood burner, and very well-equipped kitchen. Kitchen turned out to be our favourite place for eating.

The time we spent in Applebarn Cottage was a welcome visit home for us. We live in Canada and I always love coming back to Yorkshire. The cottage was (as always) lovely, clean and comfortable.

Perfect accommodation! Cottage is warm and inviting - real home from home feeling. Kitchen is well equiped, beds comfy and cottage has a great location for exploring the Yorkshire Moors. Children loved visiting the pigs and chickens

Great weekend - Spent a long weekend at Westwood Lodge, our second visit. Just as good this time round. Warm, friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Great location for both the moors and the train into Leeds.

A peaceful haven - I stayed for a fortnight while my own home was being redecorated. On my arrival and throughout, the staff could not have been more helpful: even to the extent of turning the car for the friend who transported me and my luggage, and driving me (and luggage) back to my home (a quarter of a mile away) on departure. The apartment was invitingly lit when I arrived, with music playing softly, and the table set with tea-things and a delicious home-baked cake.

Even when the place was fully booked, no sounds carried from the other apartments and cottages. It was an utterly peaceful and profoundly relaxing contrast to the temporary chaos of my own home! Everything one could wish for had been provided, and the apartment was very comfortable, with stunning views. The gardens contain a number of summer-houses, as well as the interest of the pigs and poultry, Wendy house and trampoline; while the roof-garden is a delight.

A detailed and fascinating history of the property is provided in the information-folder.

What a fantastic house! We have had the most amazing weekend. Thank you so much. Beautiful house and surroundings and we loved the pigs! We would definitely look into booking again if the opportunity arose and will be recommending the place to friends and family. So much to do and see and the jacuzzi was an extra bonus :)

Perfect position right on the edge of the moor! A very well equipped, pretty, comfortable cottage in a great position right beside Ilkley Moor but in walking distance of the town centre. A very friendly greeting and a delicious cake to welcome us. Thank you.

A really enjoyable, relaxed and family friendly place to stay! Tim and Justine made us feel very welcome. The Old Gallery was great for our size of party, and the young children especially enjoyed the garden - the pigs, chicken and rabbit plus the play-house and trampoline were just wonderful to have on-site. Everything in the kitchen worked - nice to have the store on site, and we used the sauna and jacuzzi more than once.

Probably the best house rental we have done as an extended family - 6 adults plus 4 kids - add to that some good weather and the moors just across the road and we were very happy.

Stunning Location and Property - stayed here before and would not stay anywhere else while visiting this beautiful area and my family. We travel over 500 miles from Orkney so its just lovely to arrive and know that things will be just PERFECT and being able to relax knowing that fact is a great start to our get away.

Thank you Paula and Tim for a amazing Property and accommodation.

We stayed as a large group of friends with several small children. The property was very clean and comfortable with plenty of space and lots of kitchen equipment provided. The grounds were lovely and everyone enjoyed the trampoline and feeding the pigs especially. The location in particular was great - no car necessary, both for town and to get onto the moor which is very rare. Thank you and we would definitely recommend for a short break.

Beautiful house - I cannot recommend this impressive house highly enough. Hosts were very helpful and sent lots of useful info before our stay. All rooms well presented and comfortable. Lovely cakes waiting on arrival was a nice touch. Very laid back and all made very easy and straightforward for us.

A comfortable base in a great location!

We enjoyed every minute of our stay, even though the moor view was obscured by mist most of the time. The apartment was spacious, comfortable and very well-equipped. Ilkley is a great place to stay. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside, but has a good selection of shops and restaurants and very good public transport links.

Two Thumbs Up!

Very comfortable accommodation in an excellent location, well equipped. Worked perfectly for our party of 9 (80th Birthday) and the family labrador. Looking to book at Westwood Lodge again for next year as we only scratched the surface sight seeing.

A little gem of a cottage in traditional Yorkshire beauty! Frighteningly well-organised up front administration prior to visit. Personal introduction on arrival, good, and very little interference thereafter, better. Cottage is ideally resourced and proportioned. Paula's cake was lovely, thank you. The livestock were entertaining, notably the Porky twins! Position for town and Ilkley Moor ideal, particularly if you want to get fit, keep fit or not be robbed on taxi fares! (£3.50 one way) We'd most certainly return but get the guttering over cottage front fixed! :-)

We have just stayed at Applebarn Cottage for the third time and it was as wonderful as ever. We found new walks to do and thoroughly enjoyed our walk to Bolton Abbey following the Dalesway Path Walk. Many thanks to Justine for collecting our luggage from us at the train station so we could have the afternoon in Riverside Park (really good park if like us you bring your dog). Ilkley is very dog friendly and our dog is always made very welcome at Westwood Lodge. We have already booked to stay again next year!!

Super stay with three generations all catered for. Wonderful cottage, home from home, with spectacular scenery, walks and the beautiful town to hand too. Shame I had to work, but thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing jacuzzi in the cellars to unwind, and meeting the piggies was fab. Thank you.

Excellent in every respect! We rented Coach House Cottage and The Old Gallery for a large group of us for a relaxing hen weekend. The welcome we got was excellent and the cake left for us was amazing. The facilities and comfort in both cottages were super and provided everything we needed and were looking for for the weekend. Would definitely recommend to other people.
