Great things to do around us
Bolton Abbey Estate
Nestled in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales on the banks of the River Wharfe, Bolton Abbey is arguably Yorkshire’s best day out. Great for the whole family with events happening throughout the year!
We're right on the doorstep of the beautiful town of Ilkley. Famous for its moor, fantastic countryside and it's independent shops including the world famous Betty's Cafe and Tea room.
Dubbed "Britain's gentlest long distance path", The Dalesway is a 78 mile walking route that starts in Ilkley and takes you across the North of England ending in Bowness on Windermere in Cumbria.
Leeds City Centre
A short 20 minute train journey away, Leeds City Centre is renowned for it's excellent shopping experience, award-winning restaurants and bar scene. A must for anyone visiting the area for the first time.
Over 900 years old, Skipton Castle is one of the best-preserved medieval castles in England and is well worth a visit. With Skipton High Street nearby, it's a great excuse to mix shopping with some history!
No trip to us is complete without a ramble up Ilkley Moor. This iconic walk offers some of the most incredible views, rising to 402 metres at its highest point. Ilkley Moor is breath-taking at both sunrise and sunset. So spend the night before or after!
Want to see Yorkshire from a different perspective? Why not take a brilliant Tuktuk tour. Running from Ilkley, Skipton and Harrogate. the Tuktuk tour offers a unique travel and sightseeing experience
Keighley & Worth Valley Railway
If Tuktuks, velo tours, bikes or hikes don't take your fancy, the Keightley and Worth Valley railway operates routes with their steam engine through some of the most scenic routes in Yorkshire! A great trip out.
Bradford Ice Arena
Don the skates and channel your inner Torvill and Dean (or, like us, wobble along hoping not to fall!) at Bradford Ice Rink. It's a brilliant trip for little kids and big kids alike! Once you're done, we'll have a hot drink ready to warm you up!
