We walked over the moor to the cow & calf rock from our hotel and enjoyed the fantastic views across Ilkley Moor. It really is good for the soul. Loved seeing the sheep, heather and winding paths stretching out before us.

Not been here for years, the sun was shining so we had a ride out. Fantastic views, nice walk and it was fascinating looking at the names carved into the rocks, many with dates and going back to the 1800’s! Wow. Some real history here...More
