Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Main House at Westwood Lodge, Ilkley Moor, sleeps 20 in 7 bedrooms.

The Main House at Westwood Lodge was built in 1875 by a famous local architect. It enjoys a superb location on the very edge of the world famous Ilkley Moor, yet it is just ten minutes walk down to the upmarket spa town of Ilkley with it's tea rooms, pubs and great choice of quality restaurants. Westwood Lodge is easy to reach by both road and rail (2 minutes drive up from Ilkley Station) and a 15 minute taxi ride from Leeds Bradford International Airport.

The Main House is laid out on three floors of the Grade II Listed Westwood Lodge to comfortably meet the needs of up to 20 people in 7 bedrooms. (5 bedroom option for up to 14 is also available). There's access to the top floor tower and roof garden and The Cellars leisure area (workout room, sauna, sunbed and hot tub - all private to guests) on the lower ground floor. There is an enclosed private garden area at the rear plus reserved parking.

Children will love the animal corner, Wendy house and trampoline and everyone will want to head out and explore the 2000 acres of open access land adjacent, before returning, invigorated by the fresh Yorkshire air, to the warmth of the log fire.

The Main House has been carefully restored to its Victorian glory with elegant plaster coving, stylish neo-gothic arches and encaustic tiled lobby flooring. The Victorian charm is evident throughout, with tall ceilings, restored sash windows, open fireplaces and swags and tails. The huge stained glass window on the main staircase is truly stunning.

As well as soaking up the history, there's also all manner of modern comforts. For example, you'll have Virgin Media multi-channel cable television, radio and catch-up services, free SuperHub Wi-Fi, Bluetooth stereo speaker, iPod docking and DVD player.

There's a four-oven AGA for cooking in the large Victorian kitchen as well as a halogen hob, full-sized dishwasher and American-style fridge and freezer. Outside catering can be arranged in the large dining room (dining 28) for that special occasion.
