Handy location and very well-presented

  • 4 of 5

We loved the property and it was a perfect spot for exploring the area and visiting family. The apartment was clean and cosy with everything we could need. The only downside was that, for a dog-friendly cottage, it did not have a secure garden which meant we had to take them out on the lead; the apartment is quiet but it is on a very busy road. A secure enclosed area for dogs would make this a five star review and we would definitely return

Xmas break

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit here and will not be our last! It's a beautiful apartment furnished to a very high standard, the location of the apartment is perfect for the town centre which is a 5 minute walk away. The homemade cake that greats you on arrival is a lovely touch too!

Comfortable and well equipped apartment conveniently situatied in walking distance of Ilkley centre.

  • 5 of 5

We decided to spend a few days in Ilkley while attending a wedding. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with plenty of places of interest to visit even in November. We spent time in Harrogate, don't miss tea at Betty's; Haworth, home of the Brontes; Brimham Rocks; Fountains Abbey and Ripon.

The apartment was warm and cosy with WiFi a good choice of TV channels and DVD's. The welcome tray with Banana Bread was much appreciated.
