At the foot of Ilkley Moor in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales


Renowned for our rolling hills and rugged moorland, Ilkley district is a paradise for walkers and cyclists or those who wish to simply escape and enjoy the big blue skies and inspiring views.  Depending on when you visit, the countryside can be either tranquil and inviting or wild and windswept.

We are situated with the foot of the moors on one side, and the River Wharfe a short walk in the other direction; ideally located for a range of circular walks to suit all abilities.
