Ian and I are on the way to becoming 'empty nesters' (but not quite!). We have lived in Ilkley 26 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
