“Excellent child-friendly accommodation with animals!”
Reviewed August 18, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Within reach of Ilkley town centre, which has good facilities. Also, a good starting point for nearby attractions, eg Bolton Abbey and the dales. We found the accommodation good for 3 adults, 1 teenager and 2 small children. The hot tub was particularly popular!

We all enjoyed the hospitable welcome; wine and cake. We expect to return very soon.

“Fabulous”

Love this place, have stayed before and am coming back again in March. Beautiful cottage, very dog friendly as is much of Ilkley. The moors are literally across the road, and a short walk downhill into town. The cellars gym open to residents only is great too which also includes a hottub, sauna and sunbed. Can't wait to come back. And not forgetting the pigs, save all your leftovers for them and they will love you for it.

“Sophisticated Hen Weekend”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a relaxing weekend at Applebarn Cottage. The cottage was perfect for a group of girls celebrating a sophisticated hen party.
The cottage was well stocked with facilities, a home from home.
The owners and manager provided comprehensive information on the cottage facilities, the surrounding area, restaurants, pubs and the local takeaways.
I would definitely return.
Thank you

“Home from home”
Reviewed May 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Applebarn Cottage is ideally located on the edge of Ilkley Moor and yet within walking distance of the town, shops and river. The accommodation is perfect for families and groups of friends and we really appreciated the large kitchen where we gathered every evening for a serious cooking session and get together (which is the main reason we chose this cottage over the one next door). There was everything we needed in the way of pots, pans, utensils and crockery. Tim and Paula's welcoming bottle of wine, crisps and cake were rapidly consumed and appreciated. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!

This cottage is furnished to an excellent standard. The location is fabulous - right on Ilkley Moor (marvellous for the dog) and yet within walking distance of the town centre. The welcome cake was particularly... welcome! I quiet and comfortable stay.

“Best Place to stay in Ilkley”
Reviewed December 20, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

We have been staying at Westwood Lodge for over a decade - and it continues to be the best place to stay while visiting Ilkley and the surrounding area.

Applebarn Cottage is comfy and well-appointed. It has everything you need to enjoy a lovely family holiday (even when the weather doesn't cooperate!). With three children (ages 11, 9 & 4), and a big journey over from Canada, we certainly appreciate settling into an immaculate and cozy home.

The Moors are on your doorstep, and it's a short walk down the hill into Ilkley. The Christmas lights in town are a beautiful new addition. Ilkley is a very special place with appeal for all ages! We always enjoy visiting our favourite shops, tea-room (Betty's) and pubs.

The kids enjoyed the 'extras' at Westwood - hot-tub & gym, lots of movies on offer, the various pets (chickens, rabbit, pigs!), and being so close to everything!

A warm welcome always awaits ... still love the Victorian Sponge Cake! Much thanks to Tim and Paula for helping with arrangements and accommodating our special requests.

Until next time ... !
