We stayed here for a short break and were very impressed with the quality, comfort and cleanliness of the flat. It was like being at home! The flat is ideally situated for the town centre, local supermarket and train station. It's also a good place to set off from for a brisk walk up to the Cow and calf Rocks. As mentioned in other posts, the welcome pack was a lovely touch.

“Lovely flat. Definitely worth staying at.”
Reviewed February 10, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The flat is lovely. Well done out inside and in a great location. No noise from the road which is great.
Owners are lovely. Left a large welcome basket full of goodies that was sincerely appreciated. Plenty of walks nearby and fantastic restaurants (you need to try the Box Tree).
Definitely worth staying at. Relatively cheap but with a high standard.
Would definitely stay again.

“A beautiful flat in an ideal location.”
Reviewed December 16, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

I would highly recommend The Garden Flat to anyone staying in Ilkley.

The flat is spacious yet cosy, spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and has all the amenities we needed for the weekend.
The quietness and very comfortable bed led to a great nights sleep.
A welcome tray on arrival was very kindly left for us, which was both unexpected and thoughtful.
Although once you get in the flat you never want to leave, the shops, pubs and restaurants are well worth a visit, with the added bonus of being only a five minute walk away.
The owners of the flat have obviously put a lot of thought and care into making a stay there enjoyable, and the extra attention to detail really pays off.

“This place is a must if you are staying in Ilkley!”
Reviewed November 30, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We have just returned from an amazing stay in the garden flat. First impressions were fantastic. The apartment is spotless and so well cared for you immediately feel at home

The apartment is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The rooms are spacious and the bed is so comfortable we slept brilliantly.

Having the train station so close is fantastic. We got on the train to Leeds on Saturday and visited the trinity centre and the German Christmas Market

So many wonderful places to eat and drink in Ilkley right on your doorstep. You can simply park your car in the off road parking space and not use it again until home time if you so wish

This is by far the best apartment we have stayed in. We would highly recommend it and won't be staying anywhere else when we visit Ilkley again

A big thumbs up to the garden flat owners!!
