Sightseeing
Priory church and ruins - the focal point for many visitor attractions when visiting the Wharfedale valley and only 20 minutes by car from the property.

Parking is usually available but the town is very busy on market days, so allow plenty of time. The walk behind the Castle is great and you can always stroll along the Leeds Liverpool canal and watch the barges come and go.

A great drive across Wharfedale and Nidderdale from your Ilkley base. Even better if you can cycle! You will travel through "God's Country" past truly spectacular moorland scenery, possibly passing close by to Menwith Hills (a UK and US communications and support site). Howe Stean Gorge is close by and the Cafe has a remarkable glass viewing section immediately above the gorge (definitely not for the fainthearted!)

This is an amazing little village with a great pub (Red Lion), two tearooms with a traditional village green right next to the river. The village green hosts many functions in the summer including the annual Burnsall Fell race. We have spotted Kingfishers and heron just up the river and close to a favourite jumping spot from some high cliffs into a deep pool. It is very close to Ilkley, about 25 minutes by car and 13.5 miles by bike.
