We were only here for a few days but its very pretty close to town, and the start of the moors walk. Very dog friendly hotel and staff are very welcoming and helpful. A great base for exploring the area. The weather was not good when we were there but in summer I think it must be very beautiful.

Spent my 70th Birthday (2 nights 2 - 4th December}. We had a lovely room = clean and the breakfast was great plus the bar/restaurant food at night was brilliant - plus a log fire - what more can you want. The staff were extremely pleasant. Barbara Basnett

Our plans to visit Northumberland for three days en-route to Scotland were cancelled at short notice (just a few days) thus we decided to go via Yorkshire or more specifically Ilkley as we have friends in the area and it would provide opportunity to visit them.
