Lovely place in a lovely village ideally located for Ilkley and Harrogate. Took a bit of finding and getting parked up, but was warmly greeted by Julie with tea and biscuits. Stayed in the Garden Room which was beautifully decorated and spacious. Breakfast was superb, with a choice of full English, kippers, porridge, fresh fruit salad as well as many... More

We booked here because of its proximity to Leeds Bradford Airport - a 10 minute drive. We were warmly welcomed by Julie who was looking out for us. We stayed in the Garden Room which opens on to the very English garden. The room is lavishly furnished with all top notch amenities. A lovely restful night to recover from jetlag.... More

With the rolling hills in the distance, a very warm and well appointed bed and breakfast, and a fresh cup of tea. It doesn't get much more British than that! I enjoyed spending evenings watching the world cup with the owners, and cycling the magnificent scenic roads during the day. I wish I could of stayed longer. (unfortunately just 2... More

Greeted by Julie and 2 lovely cats we knew Willow Cottage would be a good experience. We only stayed 1 night (gig in Leeds followed by trip to Harlow Carr) but the shortness of our stay did not diminish the welcome we had. Stayed In the Garden Room, which leads onto the secluded lawn and flower borders, still decorated with... More

This is a seriously excellent B & B. The rooms, decor and food are very high quality, but the friendliness and sassy banter of Julie and Harvey are what really sets it apart. We were on a golf trip (there are some great courses in the vicinity) and had a really great time in no small part due to their... More

Divine, divine, divine! Julie and Harvey were welcoming and thoughtful hosts. Nothing was too much effort. Julie and Harvey are well versed in the local area and on first name basis with all the managers' of the restaurants. I had the best nights' sleep! I would not hesitate to revisit them and recommend them to anyone who required a hotel... More

Quaint B&B in the middle of Yeadon, minutes from Bronte Country, the moors, Saltaire and other Yorkshire attractions. Each room has it's own personality, and all are equipped with amenities that made our stay special. I stayed in the Garden Room and felt like I was in a luxury hotel -- lovely decor, large screen tv, marble walk in shower,... More

We picked Willow Cottage primarily for it's location. It is a great place to stay, Willow Cottage is so much more than just a B&B, Julie & Harvey offer such a warm welcome, our stay definitely made our visit to the area more memorable. The rooms are all finished to a very high standard and are well equipped. There is... More

Stayed one Saturday night. The owners were friendly but rushing to go on holiday within 45 minutes of us arriving so we didn't get a chance to experience their great hospitality as lauded in other reviews. Our room (no 1) was smashing - clean, comfortable and really nicely accessorized, and the garden, where we sat for a cuppa after our... More

This has to be the best B&B we have ever stayed in. I can only give this 5 stars on here but it really does deserve more. The whole place is finished to such a high standard and the owners, Julie and Harvey were so welcoming. It was more like staying with friends than being in a B&B. Will be... More

Ten minutes drive from beautiful open countryside, Ilkley Moor and the Yorkshire Dales, easy access to Leeds Bradford Airport (without airport noise) with a bus service from outside the house 747 and 737. There is also the world Heritage site such as Salts Mill. Local restaurants within two minutes walk, also large supermarket for things forgotten. Train links to Ilkley, close to Harrogate with the famous Bettys tea room. A perfect location to visit. Log fires in winter and a lovely private walled garden in the summer.
