Lodge Homepage

With awe-inspiring views across Wharfedale, this characterful 19th century lodge is easily one of the most idyllic hotels in Ilkley. A stone's throw from Ben Rhydding Golf Course, and just a short drive from Leeds and Bradford, it's an ideal bolt-hole for short breaks and weekend getaways.

Its classic Victorian structure houses 13 comfy rooms and bags of period charm, making it a lovely place to unwind. While down in the pub you can continue the relaxation over a well-kept pint of cask ale and a plate of hearty, seasonally inspired food.

If the Yorkshire Dales are a paradise for walkers and ramblers, then the spa town of Ilkley is a sanctuary for those who love to browse shops and take afternoon tea.

Whichever way you're inclined, Ilkley Moor (as immortalised in the famous song) and its four-mile prehistory trail are well worth exploring. The area is as rich in heritage as it is in scenery, with unspoilt moors, burial cairns, stone circles and Roman forts scattered across the hills and dales of the Wharfe Valley. You won't have to go far to find the iconic Cow and Calf rocks, though - this historic treasure is just opposite the lodge.
