"Welcoming, thoughtful touches, newly tastefully decorated, perfect! A great place in a great place!"
Fantastic apartment, beautifully decorated, very homely and really clean. Really thoughtful touches made our stay even more special - a welcoming cake and tea tray, lovely flowers and frozen 'Cook' meals availvble to buy. The huge double bed was so comfortable, after our hike on the moors and a powerful hot shower (piles of towels) we just could have stayed for ever! Judith really looked after us. Ilkley is a fantastic town, our walk on the moors was stunning and our 5 year old loved it; also really near Bolton Abbey, another great spot where we lazed by the river. The park in iIlkely is a short stroll away as are interesting shops and restaurants. We will definitely stay again.
