In the local area you will find all necessary amenities for a great stay. Ilkley is a lovely spa town nestling in the Wharfe valley. It has a wide range of cafes, restaurants, bars, shops and take aways that are all within walking distance of the house. Ilkley boasts a classic 1930s open-air lido and an indoor swimming pool. If you want more shops it is just 30 minutes by train to Leeds or Bradford and 20 minutes drive to the lovely market town of Skipton, gateway to the Dales. York is an hour's drive or a further 30 minute train ride from Leeds. The elegant spa town of Harrogate is half an hours drive away or an hour by train. Leeds/Bradford airport is just 9 miles away.
We are also perfectly situated for visiting the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, which is just a 20 minute drive from the house. The park has 680 square miles of river valleys, trees and woodland, beautiful nature reserves and is a real walker's paradise. Nearer to home, Ilkley moor is on our doorstep with lots of moorland walks and, 15 miles away is Haworth, home to the Bronte sisters.
We had a wonderful stay with Ian and Christina - really welcoming hosts, who made us feel immediately at home. They really made our stay and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and much more spacious than in the photos. It's a great location, and particularly good for viewing the Tour de Yorkshire!
Ian and Christine were very lovely hosts. I had contacted them last minute when my previously arranged accommodations fell through. They responded to my request and subsequent messages very promptly with all the information I needed. The house was lovely and the room very warm and quiet. I would recommend Ian and Christine to anyone passing through The area.
Christina and Ian gave us a very warm and friendly welcome immediately telling us to make ourselves at home and to make use of the kitchen. The house was warm and comfortable with lashings of hot water and in a quiet part of the town. There were stunning views out of the kitchen window.
I had a lovely stay with Christina and Ian. I was only there for the one night, but in that time I was made to feel warmly welcome. They have found the right balance between providing everything you expect from a professional service, along with the friendliness and warmth that you hope for from an Airbnb stay.
With particular regards to the room, it is light and airy. The bed was very comfortable and I had a lovely night's sleep. This was even more impressive given the rain and wind outside!
If you're looking to stay somewhere in Ilkley, look no further.
Christina and Ian were superb hosts - so welcoming and friendly - I felt like one if the family. The room was spacious and comfortable and the house lovely. They also gave great advice about things to do and see in the area. Overall a wonderful stay and exceptional value for money.
A beautiful house in a lovely location with stunning views. The host was very welcoming and easy going and we chatted over a delicious breakfast including home baked bread in the morning. A very easy walk into Ilkley.
Christina was very welcoming. A huge room in a lovely house – very clean and comfortable. Only in Ilkley for one night, but it's a lovely place to stay and the B&B is only a 10 minute walk from the town centre.

About the Host, Christina
Ian and I are pretty much "empty nesters" now that our children have left home. Our lovely house is quite spacious and we have found Airbnb the perfect wayto keep our house feeling like a home. We have lived in Ilkley 28 years, so we know the area well and enjoy walking in the Dales and Lake District. Before that we lived and worked abroad and we still love traveling. I work school hours and Ian works as a rural development consultant from home. We enjoy a relaxed lifestyle - gardening, hill walking, reading. We have been Airbnb hosts since May 2012 and find ourselves very much enjoying our visitors
