We have stayed at Westwood Lodge about 8 times, been in every cottage at least once, and two of the apartments and it never disappoints. Our favorite is Applebarn Cottage since it easily accommodates us on our annual vacation to Ilkley to visit family and friends. All the cottages offer outdoor areas to enjoy (weather permitting)! Looking forward to next year!

Applebarn Cottage is a very comfortable 3 bedroom accommodation. The kitchen is very well appointed, and the main bedroom has an en suite. The other two rooms share a large bathroom. The lounge is very large and comfortable. Westwood Lodge is located a little bit out of the centre of Ilkley, up a hill. It is about 15 minutes walk DOWN the hill and 25 minutes back UP. Car parking for the cottages is a little tight if you have a large car. You get a very warm welcome from the owners on arrival, and there is a sponge cake waiting for you.

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay with you, this time in the cottage next door to where we stayed in the Autumn. We were very comfortable, lovely and warm in the evenings and catered for ourselves happily in the well equipped kitchen. This time we discovered the roof garden's impressive views and we fed Tilly on our table scraps, but wish we had known about the jacuzzi and fitness facilities before we left our respective homes. Our hosts were tremendously welcoming, and, again, we very much appreciated the delicious cake left by Paula. We h...

We have been returning to Westwood Lodge for 12 years. Once again a really lovely few days in a luxury cottage. Everything is fine to make your stay as comfortable as possible and the location, right on the edge of beautiful Ilkley Moor is perfect. Thanks again.

Tim was extremely helpful and even took the time to map out a bike route for us. The cottage was lovely and very clean, our girls particularly enjoyed the playroom which was filled with toys and books. We would definitely recommend staying here.
