Just had the best weekend staying in The Wells apartment at Westwood Lodge. Lots of useful information before we arrived which was most helpful. On arrival we were greeted by Justine the manager who was very friendly and gave us all the necessary information about the apartment. The place was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with all you needed...

Management response:

Thanks for deciding to re-book. We look forward to welcoming you back!

Very comfortable and with everything you need. Great views out to the moors from this very quiet location. We stayed in the Wells apartment, perfect for a couple.

Management response:

We have two one-bedroom apartments. The Wells is is the smaller, but still spacious.

One of the best things about Westwood Lodge is that there are apartments and cottages that accommodate different sized families. When we are just two we can stay in an apartment, when the family joins us we can choose a cottage, and for a larger group there are two big apartments available. The location is lovely - an Ilkley Moor...

About the neighbourhood
Your apartment is situated on the very edge of both Ilkley spa town and Ilkley Moor. You are literally on the Moor as soon as you walk across the cattle grid at the entrance gates! Whilst there is little traffic other than the odd passing sheep, deer or pheasant, youre not going to find yourself in the middle of nowhere staying here. Its a rural location with Ilkley itself just ten minutes stroll down through the woods. All the key places - town and country - that you might want to get to are within easy reach (by road or by rail). As a base for sight-seeing in Yorkshire and The Dales, it hard to beat! The majority of the major sights (such as York) are within an hour by car, Dales Bus or train, and a large number, such as Bolton Abbey, Skipton, Harewood, Harrogate, Brontë Country and th... more

Ilkley is just 25 minutes by train from both Leeds and Bradford (Forster Square), with trains every 30 minutes to and from both, making four trains every hour throughout the day (varies at night and on Sundays). Leeds is around 2 hours by fast train from London and Birmingham. There are regular buses (including a shuttle bus from outside your gate) to Bolton Abbey, Burnsall, Skipton, Harrogate etc.
