There's direct access to The Cellars leisure area (workout room, sauna, Jacuzzi spa etc.), the sunny terrace and animal corner/ play area with Wendy House. There's a private garden area at the rear plus reserved parking for several vehicles. It also features the newer (1890!) kitchen wing, fitted out with a heritage-style 4-oven Aga, large fridge and good old-fashioned walk-in pantry. The Main House has five large first floor bedrooms sleeping 14 plus a further two bedrooms sleeping 6, accessed by a 'secret' staircase which continues down from the hallway. This makes an ideal venue for family celebrations, like a wedding anniversary, christening or 'big' birthday. It is also perfect for groups of friends or colleagues; perhaps a retirement gathering, college reunion or pre-wedding get-together. It 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 adorning the main sitting room windows. On the first floor landing an original pillar has recently had its beautiful hand painting from 1875 revealed. The entrance to the house is up wide and welcoming stone steps, through the porch with its stained glass doorway, and on into the spacious reception hallway lined with an old church pew, wind-up 1920s gramophone and piano. The two lounge areas are off the hallway. The Day Room has large comfortable sofas and a multi-fuel burner in the large fireplace with a bay window overlooking the terrace and across Wharfedale. There is a bookcase with a selection of books, games and CDs to entertain you. Next door, the large, open Sitting Room has further relaxed seating and looks up to the magnificent French-polished staircase which leads to the first floor, past the glorious stained glass window. The very spacious Dining Room (30 x 15 feet) seats 20 around one large table. This room has been carefully restored with elaborate plaster coving to the ceiling and a triple bay window. On the walls are heritage framed artwork destination pictures (popular at railway stations in the last century) and a traditional school clock - all in keeping with the Listed Building status. There is a single dining table (laid with both plastic/ wipe-clean and fabric table cloths) and leather seating for 20. There is an L-shaped counter area at one end of the room with under-counter halogen lighting for serving food buffet-style. The second lobby off the hallway has access to the laundry/utility room and ground floor toilet. This in turn leads through to the bold red Raspberry Room and then into the large Victorian kitchen. The kitchen centres on a big old pine table, surrounded by cream Murdoch Troon kitchen cupboards and drawers, a deep Belfast sink and a heritage-style four-oven cream Aga for warmth and relaxed cooking. For those who prefer faster food, there's a modern halogen hob and a microwave oven. There's a dishwasher, American-style fridge and freezer, separate drinks fridge and a walk-in pantry with plenty of storage space for groceries and other provisions. The kitchen table comfortably seats 10 with a second table (a favourite with children) - in the adjoining Raspberry Room, seating a further 6. There's a direct-dial telephone (for incoming and outgoing calls), CD stereo, Virgin Media multi-channel cable television, digital radio, on-demand catch-up services, free Superhub wi-fi throughout, iPod docking and DVD player. The Main House has five spacious double/ twin/ family bedrooms, sleeping up to 14, Bedrooms have a clock radio and hairdryer. In addition to the en-suites, there is a family bathroom on the first floor of The Main House with a large multi-jet shower and separate bath. The Wharfedale Rooms (sleeping up to 6) continue from the hallway using the 'secret' staircase. These two light and spacious rooms look out onto the terraced gardens and beyond. The Wharfedale Rooms have a small, private enclosed garden and direct access to The Cellars leisure area (workout room, sauna and Jacuzzi spa). Changeover days are FRIDAYS for full week stays and weekend breaks and MONDAYS for full week stays and midweek breaks. Arrivals on other days or further reductions for very short stays of just 1 night are not possible. We can usually offer a late check-out on Sundays for a small charge. TO SAVE TIME - Rather than email asking for a quote, use the calendar to check availability and prices. The prices shown include an agency fee payable by you to HolidayLettings (we will also pay a commission fee to them).More

About the neighbourhood
Ilkley Moor is Yorkshires most famous location! The Main House is situated on the very edge of both Ilkley spa town and Ilkley Moor. You are literally on the Moor as soon as you walk across the cattle grid at the entrance gates! Whilst there is little traffic other than the odd passing sheep, deer or pheasant, you are not going to find yourself in the middle of nowhere staying here. It is a rural location with Ilkley itself just ten minutes stroll down through the woods. All the key places - town and country - that you might want to get to are within easy reach (by road or by rail). As a base for sight-seeing in Yorkshire and The Dales, it is hard to beat!
How to get there
The M1/M621/M62/A1/M65 are all around 30 minutes drive. A car is not necessary to enjoy your stay here! West Yorkshire really does have one of the best – and most subsidised - public transport systems in the UK today. Ilkley is just 25 minutes by train from both Leeds and Bradford (Forster Square), with trains every 30 minutes to and from both, making four trains every hour throughout the day (varies at night and on Sundays). Leeds is around 2 hours by fast train from London and Birmingham. There are regular buses (including a shuttle bus from outside your gate) to Bolton Abbey, Burnsall, Skipton, Harrogate etc.
